Here are some of the highlights from Star Wars: The Old Republic’s 6.2 Patch.

New Story Missions: The ship carrying Satele Shan and her students has been found! Join Jedi Knight Kira Carsen and Sith Lord Scourge to uncover the mystery behind this ship and face off against fanatical Servants of the former Sith Emperor to unravel their sinister plot in our new story update – Echoes of Oblivion!

New Flashpoint: The Spirit of Vengeance – Renegade Mandalorians have ambushed one of Shae Vizla’s capital ships – The Spirit of Vengeance II – to rip it apart and steal priceless Mandalorian relics. Fight these renegades to free Shae Vizla’s ship and save its crew and relics.

New Reward System: Players can now receive rewards each day they log into the game. Subscribers will be eligible for a Bonus reward if they play multiple days in a week.

Steam: Gamers on Steam no longer need to open the SWTOR launcher to update their game. The game will automatically stay up to date while it is installed in their Steam library.

Life Day Celebration: Life Day is back! This year, we’ve added new rewards, Conquest Objectives, and Achievements to the event.

Improved Cinematics: Several cinematics of each class’s starter planets, along with cinematics of the Black Talon and Esseles Flashpoints, have been improved.

Updated HK-51: HK-51 companion’s Tank role has undergone a pretty big rework to bring him in line with other Tank companions.

Emote Window:  This new window improves accessibility to emotes and makes it much easier to see which you’ve unlocked, which are available for purchase, and which emotes loop endlessly.

Credits: Corrected an issue where looting credits while grouped in flashpoints wasn’t distributing to everyone correctly.

Nine-Year Anniversary: Celebrate SWTOR’s Nine-Year Anniversary with us! The Anniversary Personnel Vendor is waiting for you on the Fleet. Purchase new and previous anniversary rewards for a limited time. The Dromund Kaas and Coruscant strongholds have also received their annual discount, and can be purchased for only 9 credits.

PvP: Leaving a PvP Challenge early will no longer apply any PvP deserter penalties. The terminal in Rishi Cove Arena has been moved to make it easier for Imperial characters to interact with.
