The War Reignites!
War between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire blazes across the galaxy.
Crucial resources dwindle as piracy and crime escalate dramatically. Amid this
chaos, the Alliance Commander has the chance to tip the scales in favor of
either faction, committing their elite forces to decide the fate of the galaxy.
As the Sith Empire prepares to make a decisive strike against a
newly-constructed Republic shipyard on the planet Corellia, members of the Dark
Council see victory on the horizon and begin plotting against one another in
anticipation of the spoils. Meanwhile, Republic forces must race against time to
muster reinforcements from across the galaxy in order to defend Corellia from
A Classic from the Old Republic
The search for allies leads to Onderon, a planet of untamed jungles and savage
beasts. For centuries, Onderon has been a loyal member of the Republic – but
will the planet’s newly-crowned King maintain that ancient allegiance?
Travel to Mek-Sha, an independent fueling station and boomtown built in the
hollows of a mined-out asteroid once controlled by the Hutts. This lawless den
of smugglers, pirates, mercenaries, traders, and refugees has become a
crossroads for the entire galaxy – a place where opportunity and danger can be
found in equal measure.
Return to Corellia
In the dramatic finale of the expansion storyline, you will see Corellia like
never before! This new Flashpoint will bring players to a new area on the
classic SWTOR planet Corellia for both solo and group players.
Play with Friends
Dxun, Onderon’s largest moon, is teeming with wild jungle-life – drawing the
attention of the unscrupulous Czerka Corporation as well as a band of fanatical
Trandoshan hunters. The Operation will be available at launch, so gather your
friends and prepare for one of the galaxy’s greatest challenges!
The Spoils of War
Our philosophy for this expansion is, play your way. Items have always been an
important part of your character’s identity, but for the first time we are
offering true depth and choice with exciting new items that let you decide how
to play in the upcoming battle.
One of the ways that we’re adding this depth is with an entirely new type of
gear slot – Tactical items. These build-defining items directly alter your
abilities and playstyle. Taking these new items, players will be able to pair
them with numerous new set bonuses to choose from, including general sets that
can be used by everyone.
These item sets can be acquired through multiple paths. Acquire your gear no
matter how you choose to play: Player vs Environment, Player vs Player, Galactic
Command, and Crafting are all viable. New set items, Tactical items, and more
open a pathway to limitless depth allowing you to play your character exactly
how you want!
