So I got burned by that April Fools Day gag involving EA and BioWare "announcing" Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3. I was burned by it because I heard about it days later on the least fact-checked podcast ever.
I promise you that none of that residual bitterness will drip onto this news about Star Wars: The Old Republic and the release of its new update 2.7, called Invasion.
In list form, because if Buzzfeed is to be believed, list-form is the only form news can take, here is what you'll get in the Invasion update:
1. New level 55 story called Forged Alliances in which two new Flashpoints reside.
2. Galactic Starfighter's Battle Zone - Denon Exosphere
3. Nightmare Mode Operation. You'll revisit the Dread Fortress and its five bosses complete with the new Nightmare Power and a new loot tier.
4. Huttball on Quesh with a new vertical layout.
