Star Wars: The Old Republic Rise of the Rakghouls update goes live

Delayed content update now ready to download and play for BioWare's massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

BioWare announced yesterday that the Rise of the Rakghouls update for Stars Wars: The Old Republic had been delayed due to "issues requiring additional testing." That additional testing did not take long to complete, as the developer today announced the content update is now live.

Rise of the Rakghouls comes to life today.

Rise of the Rakghouls is The Old Republic's first content update. It includes new missions and bug fixes, as well as antialiasing and player-versus-player bracketing for the WarZones mode. Rise of the Rakghouls--also known as game update 1.1--will download automatically when players log in to the game.
