Game Update 3.2: Rise of the Emperor

Unleashed from hiding on Yavin 4, the former Sith Emperor has struck the Imperial world of Ziost. Using his immense power in the dark side of the Force, he has dominated the minds of the planet’s martial forces–as well as an elite cadre of militaristic Jedi–and has set them against the populace, engaging in a bloody slaughter. Lana Beniko of Sith Intelligence and SIS Agent Theron Shan are attempting to reach out to their Imperial and Republic allies, respectively, with details on the quickly escalating crisis in the heart of the Empire.


Highlights

  • New Planet: Ziost! The Imperial planet Ziost is the focal point of an escalating crisis. Level 60 players who have completed the Shadow of Revan storyline can now join in the fight against the former Sith Emperor!
  • New Feature: Outfit Designer! You can now have up to 16 outfits created and saved with your unique look! This new feature can be accessed on the right hand side of the Character Sheet.

General

  • New Feature: Outfit Designer! You can access this new feature by opening your Character Sheet from the Menu bar of the “C” key by default. All players start with the first tab unlocked. You can assign the appearance of an item to a particular slot by dragging the item from your Inventory and dropping it into the appropriate slot. This does not consume or otherwise “equip” the item – it can be used for multiple appearance tabs.
    Once you’re satisfied with your outfit, clicking the “Commit” button at the bottom of the screen will save that Tab’s appearance. To use this outfit, click “Apply” at the top of the window.
    If you wish to unlock more tabs, simply click on the tab to the right of the Character Sheet and purchase it with Credits or Cartel Coins. (PTS Note: Only the default tab is currently available for testing).
