Star Wars: The Old Republic Update 1.2 Rides In On The Back Of A Tauntaun

BioWare is finally launching the much-talked-about Game Update 1.2 for Star Wars: The Old Republic today, April 13, 2012, adding an expanded Legacy system, a new Operation, a new PvP Warzone, and various other bits to the popular MMO. The update will be officially live as soon as the servers come back online around 11am ET/8am PT.

Players who have stuck with SW:TOR all along will also be getting some special bonuses from BioWare. All of those who were active subscribers when v1.2 launched will receive a free Tauntaun Ram pet, which is pretty much the best news ever for a Star Wars fan. As an added bonus, anyone who had a level 50 character at the time the update launched will also receive a complimentary 30 days of play time in return for their loyalty.

A Legacy Promotion page offers a few additional details. For example, don't start freaking out if you've signed in and don't see your new Tauntaun pet. The cute little critter will be delivered to players via in-game mail by April 25. No word on whether you can cut it open and use it as a sleeping bag.

BioWare also has a little treat for those former players who have strayed from the flock. It's not quite as cool as a free Tauntaun, but returning players who reactivate their accounts now or in the coming days will be able to play for free until April 19. The Tauntaun pet is still an option for them as well; accounts reactivated by April 21 will still get the gift.
