The first ever SWTOR world event surprised players yesterday. All Fleets are announcing that a Rakghoul plague has broken out across the Galaxy. Travel is specifically forbidden to Tatooine where the infection seems to have started.
As part of the world event players are able to unlock new green/black core light sabre crystals, new Rakghoul pet, speeder and more
Here is an excellent guide to the event: http://almarsguides.com/swtor/flashpoints/rakghoulworldevent.cfm
