Second half of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Operation Nightmare now live


The second half of Operation Nightmare has gone live. This time it tackles the Legions of Scum and Villainy with the newly minted ‘Nightmare Mode’, amping up all the enemies in the dungeon to meet the increased level cap of 55 which came with the first part of the Operation Nightmare update last month. 

The update allows you to retread through the Hutt Cartel’s compounds, with an increased challenge and level-appropriate rewards. There’s a new vehicle, a ‘Titan 6 Containment Mode’, and an elite ‘Kell Dragon’ set of gear.

Both the Legions of Scum and Villainy and Terror From Beyond nightmare updates come with the Rise of the Hutt Cartel digital expansion, along with a suite of new guild rewards, and Underworld Crafting, which aims to pull crafting up to the increased level cap.

It’s all an effort to keep expanding the end-game of The Old Republic, dragging up the wall of challenge and difficulty for the players that have invested huge amounts of time into the game, although if you don’t really fancy retreading a dungeon you’ve already completed, you might want to hold off til next week, when the next update should be hitting.

Coming on August 6th, Titans of Industry is update 2.3, and it brings with it a new level 55 daily mission area, a new Story Mode, and a brand new Flashpoint all centered around the Czerka Corporate Labs. So that’s something to look forward to.
