SWTOR getting more updates and even more rakghouls

Hot on the heels of their first content update, BioWare have revealed their plans for the future of Star Wars: The Old Republic in a new video. The last update -- Rise of the Rakghouls -- was only the first part, and players can look forward to the final part of this set of new content soon. Along with that BioWare are adding two new PvP Warzones, which I'm personally very excited about. The Warzone PvP is fun right now, but it's a bit sparse.

The Legacy System is also being expanded. At the moment it's just a surname shared across all characters, but it will become a family tree, with members of that family receiving extra benefits. Like I don't already have enough reasons to make alts. Guilds will be receiving some work as well, such as the inclusion of a guild bank. Finally, the UI will be made more customizable, this is something that has been sorely needed. It's far too cumbersome as it is. I've still not played through all of the original content, let alone Rise of the Rakghouls, so it looks like I'm going to continue to have plenty of occupy myself with.
