BioWare details incoming SWTOR features

Guild Bank, Legacy system, new PvP warzone.

BioWare has showcased a handful of new features coming soon to Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Speaking in a new video clip, which you can check out below, game director James Ohlen started out by confirming that the second part of update 1.1's Rise of the Rakghouls story is currently in the works and can be expected soon.

There's also a new PvP warzone in development, as well as a new feature that lets you rank yourself to track how you're performing against other players.

Also incoming is an updated Legacy system that lets you join a family tree, gain benefits and unlock abilities and powers you otherwise wouldn't have access to.

Additional Guild support is on the way, with Guild Banks planned for a future update.

Finally, Ohlen promised new customisation features that will let you tweak the appearance of the user interface to suit your tastes.

"We're going to be listening to the community to see what they want in the game," he concluded.

"We're always listening to the community - you're the people who decide what kind of changes we need to make to the game."
