New SWTOR email offer being sent out – Free month when you subscribe

free-swtor-month-when-you-subscribe

BioWare are sending out emails to former subscribers, offering a free month if you restart your subscription. People are now speculating that this means that  KoTET won’t be released until December. Since they know players aren’t getting anything new until then, this is their “subscriber reward”.     The fine print reads: “THIS OFFER IS EXCLUSIVE TO NAMED RECIPIENT. A PURCHASE OF ANY RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION PACK BY OCTOBER 5 2016 AT 11:59PM PDT IS REQUIRED TO RECEIVE BONUS GAMETIME. BONUS GAME TIME AWARDED AT THE END OF THE FIRST PAID MONTH OR PAID SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD OR END OF THE FIRST PAID GAME TIME CARD PERIOD. OFFER MAY NOT BE SUBSTITUTED, EXCHANGED, SOLD OR REDEEMED FOR CASH OR OTHER GOODS OR SERVICES. MAY NOT BE COMBINED WITH ANY OTHER OFFER, GIFT CARD, REBATE OR DISCOUNT COUPON. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED, TAXED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW. LIMIT ONE OFFER PER ACCOUNT.” so I’m…

SWTOR: Is this lack of communication normal?

swtor-is-this-lack-of-communication-normal

Eric Musco took on the forums earlier today to address the lack of communication from the SWTOR Developers. Hey folks, I thought this thread was a good opportunity to talk about the communication as of late. Although I may not post every day, I am definitely here, reading the forums. I know that there is frustration right now because you are all eager to learn more about what is coming in Knights of the Eternal Throne. We just aren’t ready to talk about Eternal Throne yet, and so I can’t answer your questions at this time. But, I do want to make sure you know when we will begin really talking about Eternal Throne. That date is October 7th. The day/night of our New York Comic-con Cantina is when you can expect details about Eternal Throne. Once we have crossed the 7th (and through launch), I will be able to…

SWTOR Lead Composer Comments on Datamined KOTET Music

SWTOR Lead Composer Comments on Datamined KOTET Music

That feeling when you post datamined music and then the composer comes along to comment… yeah, that happened. User Jedipedia posted a 1 hour no-spoiler feed of music from KotET and lead composer Jesse Harlin stopped in for a comment. You can see the full thread with links to the music here.  Basically, the data mined music files are just the MIDI demos that were later replaced by an actual live performance. Honestly, those demo files don’t sound half bad and they definitely get us excited for the real thing that is coming soon. As for Harlin’s comment: “Hi, SWTOR. Lead composer Jesse Harlin here. Perhaps I can help to give some context on this for you all. This happened last time with KotFE and now it’s happened again with KotET. Just so that everyone knows, these are the rough demos that eventually turn into the final tracks. We headed to Nashville…
