The next digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic is Galactic Strongholds. This expansion will allow SWTOR account holders to obtain and keep property in the game. Players will be able to display items as well as share the new digital living space with their other characters and friends. Strongholds can be bought, sold and expanded using standard SWTOR Credits or Cartel Coins.
Getting your Stronghold with SWTOR Credits
Strongholds will be first available when characters reach level 15. At this point, they will come across the introductory mission for this feature on Coruscant or Dromund Kaas. Particularly, players will be lead to a Stronghold Directory. In this terminal, players will be able to see which strongholds they own. They can also buy strongholds here using SWTOR Credits or Cartel Coins. Note that purchased Strongholds will be unlocked for your entire Legacy.
All of your characters will be able to access the Stronghold provided the location is accessible to their faction. Travel to an owned Stronghold can be done through the Stronghold Management window. This interface will be added later as a new tab in the main interface. Through this window players can also manage their property as well as obtain new property using SWTOR Credits or Cartel Coins.
Expanding your Stronghold with SWTOR Credits
When first bought, characters will only have access to the first room of the Stronghold. To access the remaining rooms of the property, they will need to click on the locked doors shown therein. This will then allow them to use SWTOR Credits or Cartel Coins to unlock the room. Note that this only needs to be done once. Strongholds will have 8 to 12 rooms laid out in unique floor plans. Rooms can be living rooms, garages, balconies, bed rooms and the like.
