Hyperspace Beacon: Star Wars The Old Republic will finally allow us to switch factions

March 29, 2017 16 comments


Long-time players of Star Wars: The Old Republic: In the next update 5.2: The War for Iokath, you will finally be able to switch factions. Insert disco horn here.

That's right: If you are a Republic character, you will finally be able to fight alongside the best people in the universe: the Sith Empire. And if you're a traitor to the Empress, you can fight alongside the Galactic Republic.




I also wanted to amplify another announcement about a couple of long-awaited companions. Republic Troopers, you will finally get your love interest Elara Dorne back, and Sith Warriors, you will finally be able to Force choke Malavai Quinn again, just as you always wanted.


I'll explain the details, my opinion, and show a teaser video on the matter below in this edition of Hyperspace Beacon.

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s galaxy map gets a big do-over

April 6, 2017 4 comments


Star Wars: The Old Republic is getting a new quality-of-life feature in the form of a revamped galaxy map, BioWare’s Eric Musco told forumgoers this earlier today — expect it in GU52.

“Aside from just being improved aesthetically, it also provides new functionality,” he writes. “We really wanted to improve players’ ability to travel around the galaxy.” You’re gonna need a ship, of course, and legacy perks will help:
“If you’ve acquired the Quick Travel perk, you can travel directly to your personal ship from the Galaxy Map. If you have a Priority Transport/Planetary perks, you will have a zero credit cost to travel to that location from the Galaxy Map. The Priority Transport perks function the same, but they no longer have a cooldown. Allowing you to travel quickly to different locations. You can now use Quick Travel while located inside ship hangers.”

All set for next week’s War of Iokath landing in Star Wars: The Old Republic? We’ve been getting details in dribs and drabs, especially about the dungeon, whose first boss was teased earlier this week. Massively OP’s SWTOR columnist Larry Everett has previously discussed the new-old companions and faction-switching options in the patch, and we covered the new map yesterday. And now this afternoon, BioWare released a lore piece and a new trailer to go along with the raid, the game’s first in two years.


Check out the trailer below, then mark April 11th on your Galactic Standard Calendar!

Over at BioWare, the frisky employees have tagged in a new producer to handle the title. The result is that Ben Irving is out and Keith Kanneg is in as the new Star Wars: The Old Republic game producer. Kanneg announced the changeover yesterday in his first producer’s letter, saying that Irving has moved to “a great new opportunity” in the company while Kanneg himself moved up from his previous job as director of live services.
SWTOR’s newest producer gave out his professional and gamer cred résumé: “I’ve been with BioWare/EA and SWTOR for the past six years, where I’ve held a variety of positions, and have always been a very active player with nearly 10,000 hours of gameplay, 28 plus characters and tons of achievements.”

Now that we’ve watched The Last Jedi teaser trailer a few hundred times and steeled ourselves for a potential Death Star Number 4, SWTOR would like to interest you in its own superweapon. When Update 5.2: The War for Iokath releases next week, players are going to work to uncover the truths behind the machine-dominated planet and its terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad secret. The team put out a dev diary that outlines some of the activities available for players on this new planet. The devs say that players will be able to make a difference on the future of the game’s storyline: “You’ll need to make the ultimate choice between Republic and Empire, a decision that will impact the fate of Iokath and the greater galaxy. As the Alliance Commander, depending on your choice you will join forces with former Companions Malavai Quinn or Elara Dorne. Together you’ll fight to decide who will be victorious and claim the superweapons power.”

SWTOR expansion trailer is nominated for a Webby

STAR WARS: The Old Republic – Knights of the Eternal Throne – "Betrayed" Trailer

  • 4,727,641 views6 months ago

Here’s a welcome shot of publicity for Star Wars: The Old Republic this week. Knights of the Eternal Throne’s

“Betrayed” trailer was nominated for a Webby Award for the Long Form (Branded) category alongside companies such as BMW and Chipotle.

The public can view and vote for whichever short film they think is the best, so obviously SWTOR would appreciate your help in propelling it to the top.


The trailer, created by Blur and directed by Dave Wilson, was released to promote last fall’s expansion. It shows the backstory of a powerful Force-using family and the separate paths that certain members took over the course of their lives. Also, it has a girl Force-crushing an armored soldier like he was a soda can, so that’s pretty awesome.




If you need a refresher on the trailer in question, we’ve got it for you after the break.
