Dark Side vs Light Side Event

  • Join a Galactic event and Earn Epic Rewards in celebration of SWTOR’s 5 year anniversary that will run for a few months.
  • Choose dark side or light side
  • More info will come around 3 weeks from today.
  • When you play the game, the sum of all the dark side choices and light choices players made during the event will impact the game and rewards you get – i.e. One of the new companions you can get as rewards is a brand new companion we havn’t seen before. Depending on which side wins the companion will either be a light side based or dark side based companion. This will change their appearance, personality and combat abilities.
  • Six tiers of rewards you can get – supposedly to be the “best” rewards you can get.
  • We looked at past 6 months of history and light side choices dominated (59% vs 41%).
  • We will give periodic updates to let you guys know how each side is doing.
