The new year rings in with news from Executive Producer, Jeff Hickman about our beloved Star Wars: The Old Republic. There are lots of things that we’ve all been asking for on the horizon as Jeff states in his newest State Of The Game blog post.
As you can probably imagine, the launch of the Free-to-Play option with our new Cartel Market has been an amazing event for our game. The game is incredibly healthy with an ever increasing number of players who are actively playing (the servers are rocking!). Having said that, we know we haven’t gotten everything perfect, and we are still working hard to make The Old Republic everything you guys desire. More than anything we wanted to get folks back in and playing the game, and bring back the excitement and camaraderie – we feel like we’ve made great strides over the last 6 months towards these goals. All signs point to a very bright future for our game!
As always we here at TORWars HQ are excited to hear that there’s more coming to us in the future and most importantly that the devs understand that many things need perfecting before moving on to other in-game projects. Jeff takes us on a journey of sorts by openly discussing hot topics that revolve around SWTOR and its player-base including but not limited to:
- ● Elder game
- ● World PvP
- ● Character Copy to PTS
Jeff goes on to talk about SGR’s which has been an extremely hot topic on both the forums and social networking sites lately. We’ve even had some interesting discussions here at TORWars about said subject, but here’s what Jeff has to say:
Secondly, I want to reveal today that we are adding SGR with some NPCs on Makeb and do intend on pursuing more SGR options in the future. More details to come!
Whew! I think we got through this State of the Game pretty well. The team and I will continue to scan the forums, read the boards, and listen to feedback. We’re dedicated to giving you the game that YOU want to play and are making changes and improvements at a rapid pace to keep up with your desires. Please keep posting and keep talking about The Old Republic. Together we will continue to care for and expand this fantastic game.
Overall there’s tons to look forward to and tons that the folks over at BioWare Austin are working on, as we speak. Thanks Jeff for keeping us updated.
