Fans who were excited to fire up Star Wars: The Old Republic today so they could explore the new content being added in BioWare's v1.1 Rise of the Rakghouls update will need to cool their heels for a bit. The developer confirms in an in-game update to players (also viewable in SW:TOR's official forums) that Rakghouls will now go live sometime in "the next few days."
The delay is the result of "issues requiring additional testing" that were discovered by players using the game's Public Test Server. When Game Update 1.1 DOES go live, subscribers can expect to encounter some server downtime. That downtime was originally scheduled to start in the early morning hours of today and continue until later this morning. Stay tuned for more updates soon.
