When Star Wars: The Old Republic first launched over a decade ago, it gave Star Wars fans the opportunity to live out their own personal fantasies in a largely untapped era of the franchise's timeline. In the years since its launch, Bioware and LucasArts have consistently added more and more content, building a robust but also complex system catered to its more experienced players. With the release of Legacy of the Sith, the game looks to streamline the overall experience and welcome a new generation of fans to the early days of a galaxy far, far away. From the expanded character creation tools to the replacement of the strict progression of Advanced Classes in favor of more flexible cross-faction Combat Styles to various "quality of life" improvements, this expansion makes the game the most inviting and accessible it's been to newcomers since the original launch. There's still a lot to learn, and the game can still feel overwhelming to beginners, but thankfully it does a decent job of walking players through many of the intricacies.

Legacy of the Sith's main purpose seems to be to update and streamline the decade-old gameplay in order to appeal to newcomers. That said, the expansion doesn't forget about the longtime players that the game has built its legacy from. The level cap has once again been boosted, this time up to level 80. New endgame content gives veteran players a reason to return, chasing down ancient Force artifacts while following the looming shadow of the infamous Darth Malgus. While the new quest lines don't take very long to complete, especially when compared to previous expansions, there's still enough to leave players with at least a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Plus, there are a lot of fun callbacks to past events, as the expansion is also serving as a 10th anniversary celebration of the game. And since the expansion, like previous releases, comes free to subscribers, players are sure to get their money's worth out of it.
