January 12, 2012 by

Fear not, MMO overachievers! If you were one of the many new Star Wars: The Old Republic players who have already raced through the leveling process in order to be one of the first level 50 characters on your server and now have nothing to do (besides play another one of the eight class’ storylines) since the game has only be out for a month, we’ve got good news for you.

BioWare has just announced that The Old Republic‘s first major content update will feature a new endgame Flashpoint called “Rise of the Rakghouls” that is so big it will be released in two parts with the first part scheduled for release next week on January 17. Star Wars: The Old Republic was our favorite of 2011 and it already looks like it’s going to have a strong 2012.
