BioWare has announced the SWTOR servers, which it took down earlier this morning for emergency maintenance, should be back up by 7.00pm EST. The developer tool the game offline due to some areas of the game being “reverted to pre-Game Update 1.2 status,” and some areas were missing completely and character in these areas became unavailable. Servers were taken offline around 9.30am CST and the team is working to “rebuild assets for the live servers,” but warns it’s not a quick process – meaning the downtime could be extended. However, you’ll get a free day of game time out of it (thanks Talkar!) so that should console you a bit. Be sure to keep and eye on the official website for status updates.
