Hi Holotable Heroes,
It’s time again for another Road Ahead. As CG_Erik, mentioned last week I’ll be taking over writing the Road Ahead posts. If you haven’t seen my name pop-up before, I’m the Live Producer. The Live Operations team is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the game. We introduce new characters, ships, and events. I’m really excited to talk about what’s coming next.
With that said, let’s step into the Cantina and see what the future has in store for the next few months.
The Battle Rages On...
It’s been a few weeks since Separatist Might landed and we’ve already seen guilds do some incredible things. Team Instinct
and Mighty Chlοrians
were the first guilds to get to at least 30 stars! Congratulations to both Team Instinct
and Mighty Chlorians
and good luck on the march to 33 stars! Also, about 80 players have beaten the Acklay! Crush the Republic scum and conquer Geonosis!
You may be wondering, “Is this the end of our focus on the Clone Wars era?” Far from it! After reworking the Geonosians we asked ourselves what could we work on next? How could it be the Clone Wars without taking a pass at the clone troopers themselves? We’re going to be updating a select few of the clones as they prepare for future battles . We hope fans aren’t too divided on the ones we selected - we’ve gone through something like 500 different iterations on which ones we should update!
Our Clone Wars invasion ultimately culminates in the release of the second half of the Geonosis Territory Battle - the light side. On the light side, you’ll battle against the dreaded Droid Army and the villains of the Separatist council. We’ve got some new units making an appearance to support the war effort that will leave you slapping your forehead in disbelief. We have a few other surprises in store, but revealing more would strain our benevolence. You won’t have to scavenge for long, as the light side reeks of great content.
Unlocking Iconic Power
Star Wars is a galaxy filled with objects just as recognizable as the characters that wield them: Darth Vader’s mask, Hermit Yoda’s cane, Rey’s quarterstaff, Darth Maul’s lightsaber, and more. While we’ve done our best to represent many of these objects on the character models themselves, we believe that there is something inherently mythical about these iconic items.
Traditionally, progression and power in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes has been represented by abstracted stars, gear, or modifications to your character card. In the coming months, we’re excited to begin talking about the next phase of character progression in the game, revolving around unlocking and mastering power represented by a unique item associated with each and every character in the game.
Finally, what if these items not only granted you immense character power, including potentially brand-new abilities, but if they were also enhanced using the massive quantities of accumulated unspent gear and materials that longtime players have piled up over years of collecting and playing?
Our goal is to not only make the game feel more truly connected to the Star Wars galaxy, but also to reward longtime players for all of their dedication over the years, and make players feel like everything they’ve ever collected and amassed in the game matters. We’re excited to talk about this new feature more in the coming weeks and months!
See you on the holotables.
