BioWare has announced that update 1.4 for SW:TOR is now live! Players will be able to travel to the Gree-controlled planet of Asation, where they'll be able to battle their way to a face-off against a mighty enemy.
An ancient portal, known as a Hypergate, has been opened on the Gree world of Asation, and now unspeakable beasts are spilling out from the other side. These creatures threaten to quickly overrun the few who remain and put the planet into total chaos. In a last ditch effort to fight back the invaders, the Republic and the Sith Empire assembled groups of its most powerful heroes to head to Asation, fight their way through the endless hordes of warped monsters, and close the Hypergate before the world is lost.
OPERATION: TERROR FROM BEYOND
The Dread Masters have unleashed unspeakable horrors on the Gree-controlled world of Asation, and if the threats are not contained, they will spread to every corner of the galaxy! This Operation pits you against agents of the Dread Masters in a race to seize control of the long-dormant Gree Hypergate, which now ushers through creatures unlike anything in the known galaxy. Fight your way through five new epic boss battles, including a final encounter with an enemy of unprecedented scale – the Terror From Beyond!
