BioWares 2014 plans for The Old Republic include two expansions

The spaceship-focused Galactic Starfighter expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic is now available for all players, including the free-to-play crowd. The expansion -which, not surprisingly, is focused on spaceship combat - went live for subscribers last December and to Preferred Status members last month. Along with the expansion's official release, BioWare is adding several new upgrades and a new Team Deathmatch mode.

"Players were really clamoring for it," said lead designer Michael Backus. "We knew it was a great addition. If you're tired of taking on objectives, now you're just going to be able to pummel each other and destroy each other."

Other new features include power-ups, lifetime stat tracking, and a new ship type (the Bomber). 

The Old Republic Expansions

Along with the release of Galactic Starfighter, BioWare also revealed that its roadmap for 2014 will include two new expansions for the MMO.

"Expect to see two digital expansions in 2014 just like you did last year," wrote Senior Producer Bruce Maclean on the game's official site, "with one similar to Galactic Starfighter in scope and one more closely resembling Rise of the Hutt Cartel." 

Meanwhile, Bioware plans to switch from a two-week update cycle to a three-week cycle between "minor patches," with a nine-week cycle between major content updates. According to Maclean, this will allow the developer to better "catch pesky bugs and improve quality."
