Star Wars: The Old Republic finally revealed the events happening this January. There's a total of four but two of them are a continuation. By that, we mean they started back in December.

The first new event for the month begins tomorrow, January 11, and is called The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally. This should be good news for swoop fans across the galaxy who are at least level 20. Be ready to race on dangerous challenge courses, show off those skills, and don't forget to flaunt those truly souped-up bikes. The event ends January 18 and feature the following rewards:

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

The second new event is the Rakghoul Resurgence on Tatooine, which starts on January 25 and runs until February 1. To join this event, players need to be at least level 25.

In this one, The Hyland Organization for Rakghoul Neutralization or T.H.O.R.N. has issued an official Level 2 emergency alert regarding an outbreak of the Rakghoul plague on Tatooine. While quarantines are in place to restrict traffic and prevent the plague from going off-world, there are certain exceptions for those with priority clearance.

That said, T.H.O.R.N. is looking for qualified volunteer emergency responders who are willing to travel to affected areas and fight the spread of the Rakghoul plague. Featured rewards include:

  • Reputation with THORN
  • Merciless Seeker’s Armor Set
  • THORN Epicenter and Dark Vector Armor Sets
  • Outbreak Response Weapons
  • Alliance Contact - Doctor Lokin
  • Infected Varactyl and Infected Dewback Mounts
  • Ferocious Rakghoul Mini-pets
