Star Wars: The Old Republic is almost 10 years old but developer BioWare Austin has recently released a new update, which brings the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife back and introduces a lot of bug fixes.

The largest moon of Nal Hutta may affectionately be referred to as the “Smuggler’s Moon” but its bustling nightlife may compel people to go to the place regardless of its reputation.

The Nar Shaddaa nightlife will be in the game from June 29 until August 10. Players can test their luck on some in-game activities, such as the Kingpin’s Bounty, Smuggler’s Luck, and Emperor’s Grace Slot machines. See if you can earn any of the new and unique prizes on offer.

Aside from that, there will be a double XP event for two weeks starting today until July 13. Those who play the game during the event will get double the Valor, XP, and Renown, so be sure to take advantage of them.

The patch also increases the cap of Tech Fragments to 11,000, up from the previous 10,000. In addition, some chat commands are no longer missing from the Emote Window like the peer, question, and smirk.

Here are some of the update’s highlights:

  • Free-to-play players can now create in-game bug report tickets with the /bug command.
  • It is no longer possible for players to go over the Item Rating cap of 306.
  • Darkside corruption is now correctly displayed on Nautolans in the character sheet, outfits, and after an area transition.
  • Chat no longer appears blank after linking the Commemorative Statue of Dread Master Brontes several times.
