Star Wars: The Old Republic update live, adds new PvP zone and space missions

Star Wars: The Old Republic's update 1.6 is live, adding a new player vs. player Warzone and new space flight missions to BioWare's massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

The new Warzone, The Ancient Hypergate, has two teams of players squabbling over energy pylons on a massive battlefield to power their team's portal. Once activated, the portal will summon friendly reinforcements to the battle, further tipping the odds in your favor. The update also adds Heroic-level space missions to the game; six difficult flight encounters that players can repeat for experience and rewards.

Check out the trailer above for a brief rundown of the update's new content.
