State of the Galaxy

  • Community discussions over the past month have revolved around:
    • Chapter XI - Disavowed: small bugs at launch, an update tomorrow to fix this.
    • Eternal Tournament (more on this later in the summary).
  • Community content: There is a lot of great quality community content, and they don't highlight it. There is a lot of talk about it where they encourage to continue producing it, and especially to share it on the forums for new players. I'm not sure if they want to do anything more concrete to showcase this content, this point is unclear.

 

Chapter XI: Disowned

  • Access to all subscribers tomorrow.
  • Join forces with Major Jorgan and the Chaos Squad.
  • An adventure far into enemy territory that could change the course of the war against the Eternal Throne.
  • New Disowned Cartel Pack available.


 

New PvP Maps: Odessen Proving Ground and Rishi Arena

  • Released on April 5 at the same time as Chapter XII: Odessen Proving Ground AND Rishi Arena.
  • Improvements underway based on feedback from PTS.
  • The improvements were chosen from a list of about fifty possible, from the forum, videos, ...
  • They showed a video explaining how it works. For an explanation in spanish, you can already see the first version given during the last livestream (some minor adjustments since).
  • Asked if the interaction will be available for other war zones? Maybe in the future, but not now!



 

Improved quality of life

  • Reminder of what has already been announced and which is to come during chapter XII (April 5). See the summary of the previous livestream.

  • PvE and PvP-type instances to come. See the PTS patch notes for more information.
  • Updated the server selection screen.

Eternal Tournament

  • Reminder of previous announcements in principle: see summary of the previous livestream.
  • Launch date during the Producer's next Livestream, at most. This will take place on April 5.
