With just 7 days left of the free month of subscription for all players in Star Wars: The Old Republic, Bioware preps its first major content patch for release by showing an in-game cinematic for one of the Flashpoints in the upcoming Patch labeled “Rise of the Rakghouls”.
Here’s the excerpt verbatim of the backstory & lore behind the “Kaon Under Siege” Flashpoint:
The Tion Hegemony is in utter chaos. A mysterious outbreak of the Rakghoul plague has spread across several worlds, killing countless civilians while mutating others into Rakghouls themselves. On the planet of Kaon a small group of survivors fight against the endless waves of Rakghoul monstrosities. Now both the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire have set plans in motion to rescue the survivors of Kaon, locate the source of the virus, and forge an alliance with the Tion Hegemony.
Patch 1.1 “Rise of the Rakghouls” is set to be released on January 17th, after weekly maintenance.
