SWTOR: Game Update 5.10.2 ‘Heralds of Victory’ Is Coming!

Yesterday the devs over at Bioware Austine announced that Patch 5.10.2, named Heralds of Victory will be landing in April and feature guild heraldry and preview window changes. When Game Update 5.10 ‘Jedi Under Siege’ launched, guilds received a boost in the form of new guild leveling and PvP challenge systems, as well as new management tools. Seeing guilds flourish from this, with Game Update 5.10.2 ‘Heralds of Victory’, we are planning to add even more for guilds!

SWTOR: A Look Behind the Scenes with Ossus

BioWare just posted an interview with Charles Boyd, the Creative Director for Star Wars: The Old Republic, regarding Game update Game Update 5.10 ‘Jedi Under Siege’ witch went live back in december. Check it out: In Game Update 5.10 ‘Jedi Under Siege’ we saw the return of several characters. How did you decide which of these familiar faces players would see? Probably the biggest example here is Darth Malgus; I always felt he was a bit shortchanged in the core game’s storyline, given that he’s easily our most iconic and recognizable Sith character. That said, I didn’t want to bring him back until his return would feel like a natural part of the story. Now that we’ve returned to the core conflict of Republic versus Sith Empire that Malgus himself originally kicked off, it seemed like the right time to bring him back into the fold. Master Gnost-Dural is an interesting…

No SWTOR Roadmap for 2019 so far

BioWare is not planing a Roadmap for SWTOR so far. I speculate that it might because BioWare Austine is waiting to see how the upcomming game Anthem does – to see whether they’ll have the staff numbers and resources/funding left to pull most of it off.  Here is the news: Roadmap | 02.04.2019, 10:38 AM Hey folks, Right now I don’t believe there are any plans for a formal roadmap in the coming weeks. To calm any concerns, that isn’t because there isn’t stuff happening this year, but we have been making an effort to give you more visibility into content sooner via PTS. With that in mind, here are some details: 5.10.1 is on PTS now, which you already know. That will come out in the next couple of weeks, more details on timing this week.After 5.10.1 is out the door, look for details on 5.10.2 going to PTS.We are still…
