Players can expect a few new fixes starting next week.

According to a post by community manager Eric Musco on the game's official forums, there will be two updates to the game. Both game update 2.1 and 2.2 will fix bugs and add general improvements to the interface and user experience.

More specifically, Update 2.1 "brings a whole lot of customization and convenience features to the game which have been requested for quite some time, such as character name changes etc." As for Update 2.2, Musco was coy. "Even though I can't yet tell you what is in Game Update 2.2, you are getting two Game Updates within that period. I will say this: Game Update 2.2 has no new Cartel Market features," he said.

Update 2.1 will be out on May 14 while update 2.2 will be out on June 11. For more information, check out the forum post.

Star Wars: The Old Republic's monthly revenue has doubled since its switch to a free-to-play model, and has added 1.7 million new players.
