With the number of subs on the decline, it’s not unusual at all to see a game company allow some leaks in order to get more people interested or back in the game. There is some new and upcoming content to SWTOR, a great deal of which includes new minipets and space missions. We cannot be sure, however, just when this new content is coming. It could be in the next game update or in several game updates, spread out over a period of time. Just because the game is showing files for some of this content does not mean that all of it will be coming out at one time.
There is a thread on the community forums that has compiled all of the known upcoming content in one area to make it easier to see all that is coming. Here’s a snippet from that thread:
NEW DAILY AREA: SECTION X ( Belsavis )
A list of the Daily Quests ( imperial side )
[DAILY] March of the Dread Guard
[DAILY] Data Raid
[DAILY] Targeted Misfire
[HEROIC] The Aurora Cannon
[AREA] Lost Reconnaissance
A list of the Daily Quests ( republic side )
[DAILY] Imminent Threat
[DAILY] The Dread Guard
[DAILY] Priority Containment
[HEROIC] Long Shots
[AREA] Key to Decryption
NEW WORLD BOSS: DREADTOOTH ( SECTION X , Belsavis )
involved in 3 weekly missions
And 4 codex entries for the 4 versions of the World Boss, because every time you kill him he resurges more powerfull.
A craftable item that involves some mechanics with that boss like the inhibitor on Nightmare Pilgrim
NEW COMPANION HK-51 ( items related to his quest-line )
The items he gears by default ( it seems by the items and the codex entry that uses AIM but he gears a SNIPER RIFLE, **** logic )
Read more in this thread on the official forums.
So what do you think about this new content? Any of it jump out to you specifically? Do you think any of this will help old players come back to the game or new players give the game a try? Or are all of these things more about bulking up the game and fall under that list of “quality of life” for players that BioWare talks about?
