    SWTOR is working on a new warzone and fresh monthly content

    December 11, 2015 21 Comments
    [​IMG]

    BioWare Community Manager Eric Musco hit the Star Wars: The Old Republic forums this afternoon and dived into the hellishly long discussion thread that’s been rolling since the livestream earlier this month. In response to complaints about the perceived lack of PvP and group PvE content updates, he wrote,
    We know you are looking for more information on the timing of future group content. Although I cannot go into any details yet I will say this… We are actively working on a new Warzone, and we are looking to start revealing details in February (Insert my usual disclaimer of all things are subject to change). On the PvE side, we do not have anything specific to announce at this time but we will certainly share more information as we have it.
    The team is hard at work on the 7 remaining Chapters in Season 1, as well as additional content, which you will get monthly starting in February. For us, it is important that all of the our content, group content included, ties into the storyline of Fallen Empire and connects to your character’s story. Story is what sets The Old Republic apart and it is important for us to deliver your personal story across all aspects of the game.

    Hyperspace Beacon: SWTOR predictions for 2016

    December 29, 2015 34 Comments
    [​IMG]

    “Difficult to see. Always in motion the future is,” Yoda explained to Luke Skywalker on Dagobah when the boy had a vision of his friends in Cloud City. So when I make predictions for the future of Star Wars: The Old Republic, I know that I am trying to predict something that even the developers might not know. When I interviewed three of the developers last week, they consistently mentioned that it was the Shadow of Revan expansion that led them to create Knights of the Fallen Empire. For those of you playing at home, SoR didn’t release until December 9th last year, which was only 20 days before I made last year’s predictions. And since game studios like to take a lot of vacation in December, it’s likely that the developers didn’t even know for sure that they would be making KOTFE in 2015.
    That being said, this is will be a fun experiment. I’m going to look at last year’s predictions and compare them to the actual outcomes, and then I’d like to make a few predictions for 2016.

    SWTOR runs January events to make up for December’s problems

    January 11, 2016 39 Comments
    [​IMG]


    There were a lot of events planned for Star Wars: The Old Republic in December. Sure, they were the game’s usual repeating events, but there were still a lot of them. Unfortunately, due to various unexpected problems, the events failed to trigger correctly and players missed out on some of those events, with the Rakghoul Resurgence being the most notable omission. As such, January’s event schedule has been updated and expanded in the hopes that everyone can get some time in with these events before they head off once again. The current schedule has the Relics of the Gree event starting tomorrow and running through the 19th, with the Rakghoul Resurgence running from the 19th through the 26th, followed by the Bounty Contract event from the 26th to February 2nd. That’s a full week of events with rewards, reputations, and some third thing that starts with the letter “R.” If there’s more stuff you want to accomplish in any of those regular events, start planning for the rest of the month.

    SWTOR is plotting new companions and solo arena fights

    January 15, 2016 84 Comments
    [​IMG]


    There’s a lot of stuff coming to Star Wars: The Old Republic in 2016. Not all of it was ready to be discussed during yesterday’s livestream; the archived version is just below, and within the first few minutes viewers are told that the team isn’t ready to talk about new group content being added to the game for players who have seen all of the old content and want something totally new. But players who want new crafting, new storytelling, new companions, and new challenges? Oh, you’re getting exactly what you like.

    Chapter X of Knights of the Fallen Empire will bring with it new companions to recruit (including Blizz recruitment) along with an increase to the crafting skill cap up to 550. That means new materials, crafting mission revamps, and new crafting recipes with new appearances. A lengthy forum post detailing the changes is due before the end of the month. The team is also planning on unveiling the new Eternal Championships, a set of challenging solo arena fights, with the launch of Chapter XI. There’s also a new warzone coming on Odessen with a release date sometime in the next six months. You can check out all of the details in the archived stream just below.

    SWTOR shakes up crafting and instant-60 gear for Update 4.1

    January 26, 2016 25 Comments
    [​IMG]
    Play SWTOR for free
    We anticipate some very mixed emotions from the announced changes to gear and crafting in the next big update for Star Wars: The Old Republic. Crafting itself will change drastically to increase its relevance, and the gear given to an instant level-60 will no longer be bind-on-legacy. In an effort to make crafting an “important alternative to Mission and Operation gear,” the BioWare developers will overhaul much of the crafting system in 4.1, raising the skill cap to 550 and introducing Grade-9 schematics and materials. The long and short of the 1800 word post on the subject is that a great number of items such as 216 and 220 gear will now be able to be crafted by players to be promptly given away or sold on the Galactic Trade Network.
    You know that pretty gear that you get from an instant level-60 character? Well, according to a post by Community Manager Eric Musco, players who create new level-60s just to get the sweet, sweet gear have “created a negative impact on the data side.” This means that BioWare feels forced to change the instant-60 gear to bind on pick-up. But there is hope: All the gear will be able to craft or drop from Alliance crates in 4.1. Some of it is still faction-specific, but the devs are working on fixing that.

    SWTOR is putting lockboxes inside of other lockboxes

    January 27, 2016 174 Comments
    [​IMG]



    Star Wars: The Old Republic
    apparently couldn’t stand to see RIFT hogging the business model drama spotlight today and has issued a new proclamation about the “Grand Packs” currently for sale on the game’s Cartel Market cash shop. After February’s patch 4.1, the packs will have a chance to drop a Grand Chance Cube in place of one of the usual ridable or decorative drops. BioWare writes,
    “Now you are asking, what is the Grand Chance Cube? Think of it as the ultimate Grand Pack. Inside a Grand Chance Cube you have a chance to receive any available Cartel Market Pack item, including from the current Pack. Also, the Grand Chance Cube acts as a Grand Pack in that if you open an Armor Lootbox, it will contain the entire armor set, not just a few pieces.
    This change allows us to place more emphasis on the Silver and Gold items in each pack, as we are no longer building new Bronze items. Now, in place of Bronze items you will receive a Grand Chance Cube. This Cube can contain the rarest of Cartel Market selections, giving you a second chance at highly-desired items.”
    “Yo Dawg, we heard you like lockboxes in your lockboxes!” quipped one commenter. You might even call it… lockboxception.

    Trooper companion headlines SWTOR’s Chapter 11: Disavowed, due March 10th

    February 18, 2016 57 Comments
    [​IMG]

    BioWare has announced that since the launch of Knights of the Fallen Empire, players have logged over 900 million minutes of Star Wars: The Old Republic. More than 27 million light- and dark-side choices have shaped players’ experiences since the latest expansion release. Now, the creators of the MMORPG in a galaxy far, far away would like to reintroduce you to Aric Jorgan, who’s coming back to us on March 10th in Chapter 11: Disavowed.


    Jorgan guided the Trooper class storyline from beginning to end. He was the Trooper’s first companion, and Jorgan stuck with the Trooper until he was frozen in carbonite for five years. This Cathar represented everything that was honest and true about the Republic military, and we get to meet him again as he and the new members of Havoc Squad lead you, the Outlander, on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.
    We’ve got images and the teaser video showing off some of the upcoming content below.

    SWTOR Chapter 11: Disavowed is here, and Aric Jorgan has returned

    March 9, 2016 16 Comments
    [​IMG]


    Players’ companion rosters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be getting one stronger tomorrow, as Trooper companion Aric Jorgan joins the alliance for Chapter 11: Disavowed. Apparently you can tag along as Jorgan and his friends go on an infiltration behind enemy lines. Of course, if the Zakuul Empire has taken over the galaxy, isn’t everywhere technically behind enemy lines?




    Semantics aside, the patch notes are up for this major monthly update. Subscribers as of March 1st are already welcome to try out the patch, while anyone who subbed after that date will need to wait until tomorrow for the new story.




    The patch also reactivates both the Relics of the Gree and Bounty Contract Week events. It’s truly great to hear that Jenny Craig has expanded into a galaxy far, far away: “Blizz went on a crash diet and lost all of his Life Day weight, and is now at his correct size.”

    Star Wars: The Old Republic developers expound on Eternal Championship and companion delays

    March 10, 2016 56 Comments
    [​IMG]



    Another month has arrived, another story chapter has gone live for Star Wars: The Old Republic, and another producer’s livestream has happened. You can watch the full archived stream below, but if you can’t watch the video or simply don’t want to watch a half-hour video to get information, there’s a handy summary available from Dulfy placing all of the information in straightforward text. PvP players in particular can look forward to the game’s next warzone and arena arriving with Chapter XII on April 5th.


    The Eternal Championship was originally planned for this patch, but it was held back due to the major issue of just not being sufficiently fun to play; it’s expected to be up on the test server by late March, with a launch date announced on the next producer’s stream. The team also reiterates that the delays of reintroducing certain companions is a matter of making sure that the companions you deal with have story and impact behind their returns. The full stream archive, as mentioned before, is embedded below.

    Hyperspace Beacon: Should you resub for SWTOR: Disavowed?

    March 15, 2016 78 Comments
    [​IMG]
    Play SWTOR for free
    Hello, friends. I hope you don’t mind my calling you that. I do respect my readers. Thankfully, most of you are rational and thoughtful. And I do my best to be the same.

    Many of you are also fans of Star Wars: The Old Republic, or at very least want to be fans of Star Wars: The Old Republic. And I know for certain that BioWare has made it difficult for you to want to play the game recently. The lackluster launch of Chapter 10 made some of you question if you shouldn’t just completely give up on the MMORPG all together. I can certainly see your point, although I would recommend giving it another chance to win you over… next month, not this month.


    You were probably hoping chapter 11 of Knights of the Fallen Empire would outshine chapter 10. And if I am completely honest with you, it does. It’s a better chapter, and the connection between game mechanics and storytelling is tighter. But I’ll get more into that later. The bottom line is that you, my friend, are waiting for the chapter to really pull you back into the game with a story that’s exciting and impactful. And the unfortunate truth is that Chapter 11: Disavowed is another chapter full of setup and exposition.




    Let me break that down into the good and the bad and let you decide for yourself if you think this is a good time to come back to the game.

    BioWare is fixing the SWTOR sub cartel coin allotment bug

    March 28, 2016 5 Comments
    [​IMG]



    Observant Star Wars: The Old Republic players have been noticing that cartel coins granted to subscribers haven’t been accruing properly over part of the past year, sometimes shorting players by a few days every month, thereby adding up to the loss of a month’s worth of coins in a 10-month period.

    Our own SWTOR columnist Larry Everett confirmed his allotments were off by a few days some months as well.


    But there’s no need to panic: BioWare Community Manager Eric Musco addressed the situation on the forums earlier today. “Since August of last year an issue creeped into our granting system which caused Cartel Coins to be granted every 33 days, instead of every 30 days as intended,” he confirmed, telling players a fix is on the way next week.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic launches Visions in the Dark with its latest update

    April 5, 2016 23 Comments
    [​IMG]


    Are you of the mind that Emperor Valkorion in Star Wars: The Old Republic is an enormous jerk, or are you more in the “rah-rah-rah, this emperor isn’t so bad once you overlook the horrible stuff he does all the time!” camp? Because the newest chapter of Knights of the Fallen Empire promises to make that stance quite relevant, what with a deadly mission to the heart of the Eternal Empire. If you were subscribed by April 1st, you get to start playing that chapter today; everyone else will have to wait a little bit to play the chapter on April 7th.



    Even if you have to wait a bit, there’s still stuff in the patch to explore, including the new Focus option to switch between PvE and PvP instance types on a given server and a brand-new cross-faction warzone. Players can also unlock and use all 5 existing Strongholds on a single Legacy. Even if you have to wait a couple of days to enjoy the big story update, you’ll still have stuff to do when the game’s maintenance finishes up and the patch is ready (the current projected timing is noon EDT).

    SWTOR launches heist chapter ‘Profit and Plunder’ on May 3rd


    April 5, 2016 20 Comments
    [​IMG]




    If you have early access for the latest chapter in the continuing saga of the Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion Knights of the Fallen Empire, then you are likely playing that right now. But if you’ve finished and are now champing at the bit for Chapter 13: Profit and Plunder, you will have to wait no further than May 3rd for early access.




    According to the Producer Livestream today, the next chapter will feature a heist and two former companions many players have been asking for: Vette and Gault — although people might have been asking for Gault so that they could finally kill him. The Creative Lead Designer Charles Boyd said on the stream that Chapter 13 is “definitely a more humorous chapter” because of its inclusion of these two characters.

    BioWare says ‘SWTOR is absolutely being supported into the future’

    April 19, 2016 96 Comments
    [​IMG]

    BioWare Producer Ben Irving has a new letter out for Star Wars: The Old Republic players reassuring them of BioWare’s committment to the game. “Is SWTOR going to receive ongoing support?” he writes.

    “The answer is absolutely yes.” Irving apologizes to fans for bugs and reminds everyone that BioWare has stepped up its content cadence during the past expansion cycle, to the point that he declares that “Knights of the Fallen Empire is the most successful expansion we have ever produced.”
    “In the eyes of all of our partners, SWTOR is a huge success. BioWare supports this game. EA supports this game. Lusasfilm supports this game. Disney supports this game. In fact, for a game that has been live for almost 5 years, we are receiving an incredible amount of support from all of our partners.



    It’s both amazing and humbling. If there is anything I would like people reading this to take away it’s this: SWTOR is absolutely being supported into the future. We have a lot of content coming over the next few months and even more exciting things to talk about later this year. All of us here at BioWare appreciate your ongoing support and we are committed to providing the best experience possible.”

    Check out SWTOR’s upcoming weapon effect customization

    April 21, 2016 45 Comments
    [​IMG]

    When Chapter 14 Profit and Plunder takes over Star Wars: The Old Republic next month, players will be getting a new weapon customizing system in the form of what BioWare is calling “weapon tuning.” Players will find they can tunings to the tuning slots on select weapons, like any ol’ boring mod, but then the weapon will take on a new graphical effect,
    “Weapons that have a Tuning Slot come from many different sources including the Cartel Market, PvP, Operations, Reputation Vendors, Flashpoints, Heroics Missions, and Crafting Recipes. […] Next, you’ll need a Weapon Tuning. They are currently only found in Cartel Market Packs. The first Weapon Tuning, Lightning, is available in the Plunderer Pack which launches alongside Chapter XIII: Profit and Plunder.
    “Once you’ve got a weapon with an open Tuning Slot and a Weapon Tuning, combining the two is as simple as making any other modification to your weapon. First, CTRL+Right-click the item to open up the Field Modification window. You can also take it to an Item Modification Station. Then simply drag the Weapon Tuning into the open Tuning Slot and hit Apply. Your Weapon will automatically begin using the effect created by the Mod!”
    And yeah, that great disturbance in the force you just felt was Reddit reacting to the part where tunings come only from gambling lockboxes.

    Play SWTOR for free

    If the world around you seems especially nerdy on May 4th every year, it’s because Star Wars fans have embraced that date as a de facto holiday. May the fourth be with you, and all that. Hey, a pun is just as good an excuse to throw a party as anything else!

    Star Wars: The Old Republic isn’t immune from the fun of this geek holiday. As in previous years, BioWare has prepared some goodies for players who log in during this time. Currently through May 4th, any players who touch foot in the game will get a free astromech droid pet.



    This will be followed up by a couple of weeks of bonus XP from May 3rd through the 10th, then again from May 26th through the 30th.


    BioWare is also hosting a speedrun contest through Knights of the Fallen Empire’s new eternal championship. The grand prize for the contest is a trip to Star Wars Celebration Europe for you and three of your best friends.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic game update 4.4 brings Eternal Championship, weapon customization, and more

    May 2, 2016 12 Comments
    [​IMG]

    Ladies, gents, and Wookiees, make sure you have your bowcaster strapped securely, for Star Wars: The Old Republic is embarking on Game Update 4.4 tomorrow. The update brings a new chapter to the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion story.

    Chapter 13: Profit and Plunder puts the focus on the companions Vette and Gault who are staging a heist to end all heists. When you get finished with that, you can try your hand at the Eternal Championship, a PvE arena that pits you against the galaxy’s toughest foes.


    Reportedly, 4.4 contains the new weapon effect customization system, although mention of this is strangely absent from the patch notes. BioWare is reactivating the Bounty Contract Week and Relics of the Gree event today as well.
    You can log in this week to get your free astromech droid pet and enjoy a few other promotions for “May the Fourth Be With You” celebration.

    Waxing philosophical about SWTOR companions with BioWare’s Charles Boyd

    May 5, 2016 6 Comments
    [​IMG]

    Just in time for this week’s May the Fourth festivities, I spoke to Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Charles Boyd. He currently holds the title of Lead Designer — Creative, but he likes to refer to it as Creative Lead. It makes it easier to remember and say in front of his name. Essentially, he has creative control over the story and the direction of the game, specifically the narrative of the game. “I have unlimited power!” he exclaimed in his Emperor Palpatine impression. This only makes sense that a writer would hold this position given that it’s a BioWare game and he was big part of the development of Knights of the Fallen Empire back when he bore the title Lead Writer. As I spoke to him about his job and the stories that he’s written over his almost 10 years at BioWare, the conversation took a philosophical turn toward the game’s companions, especially in how they reflect on the player and the characters that the players are puppeting.




    There will be some minor spoilers about previous Knights of the Fallen Empire chapters, but I’ve tried to keep them to a minimum. But if you like to talk about storytelling in BioWare games or games in general, read on regardless of spoilers.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic announces Mandalore’s Revenge, coming June 3rd

    May 11, 2016 50 Comments
    [​IMG]


    BioWare has just announced Mandalore’s Revenge, the next chapter in Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Knights of the Fallen Empire storyline. More than that, the studio has confirmed just who the Mandalore is, something we suspected but didn’t know for sure.
    “The newest chapter in the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion gives the Outlander an opportunity to confront Emperor Arcann with an army of ruthless Mandalorian warriors. Enlist the help of the infamous bounty hunter
    as you and your Alliance move to seize control of the most powerful armada in the galaxy – the Eternal Fleet. Prepare to brave the harsh desert world of Darvannis and survive its brutal enemy forces in a desperate attempt to save the galaxy from the Eternal Empire forever – and earn the loyalties of
    and unyielding Mandalorian warriors!”
    So who's the Mandalore? Click here to reveal the name we've censored above. As usual with these chapters, subbers gain access to chapter 1 through chapter 13, while freebie players who’ve not subbed for the storyline at all will be able to jump into a trial of chapter one and potentially snag a level 60 character boost upon activating. Those subbed by June 1st will also find their accounts granted an Eternal Empire Patroller vehicle. “Subscribe by June 1 to receive Early Access to Chapter 14: Mandalore’s Revenge on June 1 and Chapter 15 coming later this [summer],” BioWare suggests. [Update: BioWare has since clarified to MOP that both chapter 14 and 15 will release in June.]
    Watch the teaser trailer below — just note, it’s also got spoilers!

    Hyperspace Beacon: Going to war with SWTOR’s new Mandalore

    June 2, 2016 13 Comments
    [​IMG]

    Do I have to turn in my Star Wars fanboy card if I admit that I don’t like Mandalorians? It’s not that I think that they are poorly written. Karen Travis’ book sales should be an indication that she did something right.

    I guess I find the honor and the whole warrior culture trope tired. Battle for the sake of battle doesn’t really interest me. Knowing how I feel about Mandalorians and that whole culture does that mean that if I found the 14th Knights of the Fallen Empire chapter just OK, then for the Mandalorian fan, it will be amazing? That’s probably a big issue that these episodic updates to Star Wars: The Old Republic have run into.

    They might include some great chapters that people who are not fans of the base source material will find just average or horrible.
    Having just finished playing through the content of this latest SWTOR update, I’d say the material is still fresh on my mind. So let me tell you what I liked and didn’t like, then you can tell me in the comments whether you thought it was any good — or not.
