Dark vs. Light Takes Over Star Wars: The Old Republic Galaxy Event

What's a Star Wars game without the conflict between the Dark side and the Light side of the Force? BioWare and Lucasfilm shared details of a new in-game event where players take on exciting challenges in the battle for control of the galaxy. The summer-long event starts June 28 and will be open to Star Wars: The Old Republic players interested in earning legendary rewards and changing the fate of the galaxy:

- Start a new character, choose a side and join the battle!
- Earn epic new rewards including the formidable Victor's Titan Turret Tank, Victorious
Pioneer's Armor Set which gives +50% XP Boost and Force-Bound Dark vs. Light Packs stocked with dark and light side themed items
- Your choices make the dark or light side grow stronger and determines which Companion reward is unlocked for players who complete the Eternal Level – either the merciless Darth Hexid Companion (dark side) or the valiant Master Ranos Companion (light side)

The outcome of players' Dark and Light side decisions will determine the galaxy's state as the future of Star Wars: The Old Republic changes this Autumn. Stay tuned for more details.
