SWTOR’s new game Producer Keith Kanneg took on the official forums today to provide an update on Game Update 5.2.2 coming mid June, as well as to explain why there is a delay to the promised Roadmap posts.
Check it out below:
► Update on Roadmap | 05.09.2017, 04:07 PM
Wanted to provide an update on my first Producer Roadmap, but getting it published is taking longer than I anticipated. Partly my own fault, as my Dad came to visit and I took a few days off over the past couple of weeks to spend time with him. This ultimately slowed my progress but I am back in full swing now and pushing to get the roadmap completed.
I honestly thought I would have had the roadmap done and communicated already, but, I realistically need more time to finalize it. Translated: That means end of this month, but with full intention of delivering it sooner. <sad face> This is not something I wanted to tell you, but I promised to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening.
While you continue to wait, here’s a few highlights of Game Update 5.2.2 scheduled for mid-June (yes, in 2017):
- The Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event returns with old and some awesome new rewards
- New Character Perks to increase your speeder piloting speed to 120% and 130%
- Companions will gain influence through standard crew skill missions
- Full Tier 1 gear available from existing Fleet vendors using Command Tokens – this means you can obtain a full bonus gear set for under 800 Command Tokens. You will be able to choose the type of gear you want to purchase (DPS, Tank, or Healer).
- We made a variety of changes to Galactic Starfighter – primarily aimed at reducing the cost, increasing requisition rewards, and offering all players a Gunship and Bomber as standard ships (available in your hangar).
I will continue to pass on roadmap updates as I have them. We do have an exciting year ahead of us and I look forward to sharing it you.
