SWG adds space piracy, revisits Lok

Today marked the announcement of a major new content update for an MMORPG set in a galaxy far, far away. No, not that one. Sony Online Entertainment brings us word of the new Game Update 16: Stronghold of the Lok Revenants content patch for Star Wars Galaxies.

The title is certainly a mouthful, and the amount of content looks to be equally chunky. The update features a return to the Feeorin pirate Nym's stronghold on the backwater barren known as Lok. One of the original themepark quest lines for the long-running MMO, Nym's has been revamped to feature additional side quests and new rewards, including the Jinkins J-1 Rifle, mounted Slugthrower decorations and Nym's logo rug.

The update also features a new addition to the oft-neglected space-based portions of the game in the form of a piracy system that allows players to pull trade convoys out of hyperspace and pillage them for engines, shields, and all manner of shiny valuables. Finally, players can look forward to a new Email Collections reward - a display model of Nym's 'Havoc' starfighter. Check out the press release for the full details on Game Update 16.
