BioWare has announced it will be bringing down the SWTOR servers for eight hours on April 12 in order to apply Update 1.2 – Legacy. All game servers will be offline during this period, and while eight hours is the mark, it could last a bit longer so be prepared.
Update 1.2 introduces new content and features such as rewards and a family tree via the expanded Legacy System. Players will be able to explore Lost Island, a new Flashpoint, challenge the new Operation: Explosive Conflict, and the new Novare Coast Warzone.
Daily missions will be available on Corellia, the User Interface will be customizable, guilds will now have a Guild Bank, and there’s plenty more.
The patch, notes for which can be found here, is 1GB in size – depending on when you last updated the game.
Here’s are the various down times for the main time zones: Thursday, April 12 – 12:01AM CDT (April 11th, 10:01PM PDT/1:01AM EDT/6:01AM BST/7:01AM CEST/3:01PM AEST) until 8AM CDT (6AM PDT/9AM EDT/2PM BST/3PM CEST/11PM AEST)
