What we'll see in game update 2.4

As I'm sure many of you know we are getting close to the release of game update 2.3 (expected August 6), with that Bioware have started to give us some details regarding game update 2.4.

Want to know what's coming on October 1 (projected launch date)? Of course you do. Brace yourself because it's quite a bit actually.

As listed by Senior Producer Bruce Maclean on the official forums.

  • The Planet Oricon, a short story arc that will bring you face-to-face with the Dread Masters.
  • New Operation: Dread Fortress
  • New Operation: Dread Palace
  • New 4v4 Warzone Arenas
  • New Elder Game PvE and PvP Gear

Two operations, new warzones (or is that just the option to play the current ones as 4v4?), new gear sets and a completely new planet with its own story arc. While we're still pretty short on any concrete details like how big the planet is or if those are actually new warzones I think looks pretty impressive for a regular game update.

Seeing what we're getting 2.3 and 2.4 almost makes you wonder why exactly it is that Rise of the Hutt Cartel was a paid update.
