Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic will receive a new patch in a few hours, and it contains tons of general improvements, balancing changes, and bug fixes. Update 7.0.1 also brings Season 14 PvP rewards, so those eligible will receive Bronze, Silver, or Gold tier rewards in their mailbox upon logging in. As of this writing, servers are down for maintenance and will go live within hours with the latest update.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is an MMORPG that’s pretty forgiving when it comes to system specs. You can even play the game on your laptop, which is ideal if you are on the go most of the time. That said, developers have fixed a major issue that prevented those playing SWTOR on laptops equipped with AMD Ryzen HS processors from logging into the game. 

In terms of general improvements, it is now possible for you to drag and drop items from the inventory window to any of your gear slots and vice-versa. Furthermore, the outfitter tab now correctly shows the current outfit instead of the equipped gear when inspecting a character. 

Update Highlights

GENERAL
  • Players are now able to view the Details window when changing gear. The window remains open until players close it
  • Unifying colors on individual armor pieces is now correctly saved when leaving the Outfitter window
  • The Category Filter in the Ability window is now showing all the categories. The Vehicles category now appears when the list is opened
  • The Item preview button in the Cartel Market and Collections windows is always visible when the item can be previewed
  • The level 60 Character Boost tutorial has been removed as it is no longer needed due to the Level 60 Character Boost token removal
