Star Wars Hoth Uprisings Developer Live Stream

If you wanted to learn more about Star WarsHhoth Uprising, there was a developer life stream on November 10th that cleared up a lot of things for us. The hosts, community manager Eric Musco and the 2 hosts from The Bad Feeling Podcast show – Chuck and Brian, used this lives stream event to show a live playthrough on a test server of Firefrost. Firefrost is one of the new Uprisings, found on Hoth. They mixed up the format a bit from what we are used to in resent producer live streams and it worked out well. There wasn’t a lot of especially new info or details released but it’s a great overview for anyone who hasn’t been following along, and the game play is always fun to look at.

Here are some highlights or takeaways from the event:

  • We saw one of the new non mod-able 242 item level gear sets and bonus set
  • There is a lot of unavoidable damage
  • We saw the Story Mode of the Firefrost Uprising which took them about 15 minutes
  • We also saw a run through Veteran Mode which is harder

We also know that:

  • More uprisings will come after the launch of KOTET
  • These Uprisings are geared more toward the casual players
  • The goal is for them to last between 15-30 minutes
  • The Uprisings will contain Easter eggs and other goodies to encourage players to run around and explore
  • While they are designed for 4 players, you can enter alone or with a friend
  • Content does not favor a class or role

So now that you know all of this, are you looking forward to Uprisings?
