Doing a little catching up with Star Wars: The Old Republic, we have news of the first game update and news of TOR making it into the Guiness Book of World Records.
NOTE: We're going to discontinue the big rundown of review links and excerpts at this point. We've covered a number of previews and reviews, of which you can catch up through the related links below. We will post future review and preview links as they relate to new content.
Let's start with the content update. Here's the announcement from Amber Green on the SWTOR.com boards:
"Hello everyone! We are excited to announce that today’s patch for our Public Test Server brings you the first of many content updates for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. It includes some exciting content additions, including a new Flashpoint, Kaon Under Siege, and four new boss additions to Operation: Karagga’s Palace. You’ll also notice changes to Open World PvP on Ilum.
As with every update, 1.1 includes many high-priority bug fixes. We have corrected the issue that prevented some Jedi Knights from progressing in Kira Carsen’s affection conversations, made some previously inaccessible Datacrons reachable, and have made many fixes to various issues in Flashpoints and Operations.
We are looking forward to your feedback about the changes we have made, and we appreciate you using the Public Test Server forums to report any bugs you encounter while playing on it. Thank you for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic!
Note: The Public Test Server patch notes will be provided in English. The final release notes will be provided in English, French, and German when the content is moved to live servers."
Beyond the game improvements it seems that congratulations is in order. PCGamer.com reports that Star Wars: The Old Republic has earned the Guinness World Record for the largest voice acting entertainment project by featuring over 200 voice actors and over 200,000 lines of dialogue.
