Looks like a lot of fun. I am now going to predict several of the responses in this thread.
1) Waaah, this was all suppose to be in at launch but since EA rushed the game they are adding it as a "content" patch.
2) They are rushing this content patch to launch on the 17th before everybody quits on the 20th!
3) Why are they developing content when they should be fixing all of the bugs!
4) Why are they developing PvE content when they should be fixing PvP/Crafting/Space Combat/Nerfing Operatives/Adding Day and Night Cycles etc etc etc.
I'm hoping I'm wrong. I for one am enjoying the game immensely and did not expect a content update so quickly. I'm also really looking forward to the March update
EDIT: Hah, the post RIGHT AFTER MINE meets prediction 3!
