BioWare tease update 2.2 for Star Wars: The Old Republic, closing APAC server

The next game update is 2.2: Operation Nightmare, which will add two Nightmare Mode operations across two separate updates. Terror From Beyond is first, followed by Scum and Villainy in 2.2.2.

Another notable change on the way is the obliteration of the APAC server, meaning there'll be a "free one-time transfer" for each character to "any SWTOR server." They expanded the emigration options.

The Australia Pacific servers were just too quiet and so served little purpose, especially as more Nightmare Mode operations are coming out and you need big groups.

BioWare also remind us that Underworld Gear crafting is now available so level 55 Underworld Gear can be crafted and traded on the GTN, which require some expensive and rare components. Guild membership also grants a 10% capped boost to XP and reputation gains.

Double XP weekends are scheduled:

• June 21, 2013 to June 24, 2013
• June 28, 2013 to July 1, 2013
• July 4, 2013 to July 8, 2013
