Last week a few not-so-subtle hints indicated that something nasty could be making its way to Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR). The original Rakghoul plague came in the form of an in-game event that stirred up a few problems for both the Republic and Empire. And this week it's back.

"Rakghoul outbreak confirmed on Alderaan. Residents urged to remain indoors while THORN personnel attempt containment."

While this new outbreak event seems to currently be on Alderaan, it’s unlikely to stay there. Just remember all the poor exploding souls running across the Fleet the last time. It may be a good idea to stock up on the cure and maybe even bring an umbrella.
