August is here and that means there’s a new set of activities in Star Wars: The Old Republic. There are three of them, with each one lasting for a week at least.

The first one is the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife, which actually started back in July and ends this August 10. This one has players test their luck at the Star Cluster Casino as well as the Club Vertica Casino. There are a lot of rare rewards up for grabs to those favored by luck. You can also experience this on Mek-Sha.

Featured rewards for this event include:

  • Kingpin’s and Nightlife Socialite Armor Sets
  • Phrojo Nuray and Gammorean Bodyguard Companions
  • Vectron Magnus and Kingpin's Rancor Mounts
  • Kingpin’s Predator Mount
  • Taxidermy Stronghold Decorations
  • Cartel Market Certificates
  • New High Roller Shades
  • New Replica C1-4W Mini-pet
  • New Kingpin’s Grigna Mount
  • New Blast Pad Floor Trap and Frost Floor Trap Stronghold Decorations

Bounty Contract Week

Once the first event ends, players can immediately join the Bounty Contract Week. It starts August 10 and ends August 17 with players needing to be at least Level 15 to be part of it.

During this event, the Bounty Brokers Association is opening its doors to those who are willing to take on dangerous contracts. There’s no question that this is a good time for both veteran and rookie hunters to test out their skills.

For each day of the event, players can sign up to take on one standard Henchman contract and one high-profile Kingpin Contract. Finishing five standard contracts unlocks Kingpin missions which offer bigger loot. Featured rewards include:

  • Reputation with the Bounty Brokers Association
  • Bounty Tracker’s Armor Set and Contract Hunter’s Armor Set
  • Assassin’s Bowcaster and Elite Tracker’s Bowcaster weapons
  • Lobelot, Swamp Kell Drake, and Drink Server Probe Mini-pets
  • BH-7X Custom Hunter Mount

The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally

This is the last event and it starts August 24 until August 31. To join, players need to be at least Level 20.

In this one, swoop fans from different parts of the galaxy have arrived to be part of the galaxy's biggest event. Players can flaunt their bikes, and of course, show those skills in challenge courses. Featured rewards include:

  • Swoop Rally Mounts (regular and gold versions)
  • Swoop Gang Outfits
  • Promotion Droid Mini-pets
  • Various Stronghold Decorations

Released in 2011, Star Wars: The Old Republic is on PC.
