Star Wars The Old Republic Galactic Strongholds expansion revealed with trailer

Customise your own apartment and launch Guild Flagships this summer

BioWare has announced a new Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion pack titled Galactic Strongholds.

Set for release this summer, with early access beginning on June 24, Galactic Strongholds will allow players to live on multiple planets, customise their own apartments and launch Guild Flagships. According to the official announcement:

Players can live in the heart of their faction's capital world, live in style among the high-rollers of Nar Shaddaa, or even both by owning multiple Strongholds. Hundreds of unique decorations will be available for players to express their own personal style, as well as to boost their Prestige score to compete for top ranking in the Stronghold Directory.

Friends can be invited and transported to a player's Stronghold from any in-game location to socialize. At official launch, Guilds will also be able to launch powerful Guild Flagships where members can meet, plan, and strategize for their next adventure.
