Here’s the plan for the remainder of this calendar year:

New York CANTINA - October 6, 2017
  • Cantina on October 6, 2017 at Stitch Bar and Lounge, located at 247 W 37th St, New York (7-11pm ET)
  • We have a special guest attending who will provide insight about Game Update 5.6 – A Traitor Among the Chiss!
  • Members from the SWTOR Dev Team including myself will be there. We can’t wait to meet you!
  • Lots of free swag, food, and drinks to share with friends and guildmates
United Forces Foundation - Game Update 5.5 – October 10, 2017
  • Unassembled Components now drop off all Master Mode bosses
  • Improvements to Galactic Starfighter
  • PvP Bolster increased to 242
  • The Dark vs Light pop-up will now display less frequently and once a side has won, they will remain in a victory state much longer. This allows more time to work to defeat the world bosses and to reap the benefits!
  • Substantial improvements to the Iokath Daily Area – we’ve dramatically reduced the Iokath currency requirements for a variety of the daily quests
  • New Galactic Command Rank Legacy Perk that will give up to a 100% CXP bonus under Command Rank 300!
  • New Companion Customization Vendor available in the Fleet Bazaar. The vendors will sell older Companion Customizations for “opposite-faction” Companions. Ex: A Republic player could now get an older Vette customization.
  • Additional Class Balance changes
  • Introduction of taxi points into the Yavin and Tatooine Strongholds for faster navigation
  • Cartel Market Store changes
  • United Forces structural changes (improvements not visible)
United Forces Formation – October 24, 2017
  • As we prepare for the United Forces update, we are planning an extended downtime on this day as we need to rollout all the new hardware and vital infrastructure changes.
United Forces Goes Live - Game Update 5.5.1 – November 8, 2017
  • Today, we forge our new United Forces galaxy from a broader set of server communities into a set of larger, but fewer Servers. An extended downtime is planned for this effort.
  • For a full week, we’re bringing back Double Rewards (XP, Command XP, Valor, Requisition)
  • Simply log in to play and qualify for the new Mini Mogul NM-1 mini-pet, inspired by one of our classic Operation bosses, Karagga the Unyielding!
  • Unlock new achievements when you complete multiplayer activities using Group Finder and earn the merciless Darth Hexid Companion!
A Traitor Among the Chiss - Game Update 5.6 – November 28, 2017
  • NAHUT - The 3rd Boss Encounter for Gods from the Machine Operation
  • New Flashpoint on Copero – Find out what Theron’s been up to with the Chiss
  • New PvP map
  • New GSF Map set in the Orbit above Iokath
  • Group Finder Revamp – Significant upgrades to how you queue for multiplayer and solo activities – huge bonuses for all Random play choices, but also allows for easy selection of individual activities such as Daily Areas, Flashpoints, and Operations.
  • Class Balance changes and a variety of utility adjustments
  • Launch of Legacy-wide currencies for Credits and Unassembled Components
  • Galactic Command upgraded disintegrate system – this QoL improvement changes how disintegrate works and instead of CXP gives you legacy-bound Unassembled Components
  • Ensign Raina Temple returns!
  • Distribution of Special United Forces Rewards
Anniversary Celebration – Game Update 5.6.1 – December 12, 2017
  • Quality of Life changes
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic Six Year Anniversary Celebration!
  • Wookiee Life Day Celebration begins
A Look Ahead to Early 2018

And, just a few tidbits about what’s right around the corner:

  • The conclusion to this chapter of the story is coming where the Traitor reveals his true plan once and for all via a new Flashpoint
  • The final bosses and details about Master Mode for Gods from the Machine Operation
  • An upgraded Conquest system and new Daily Activity system with great rewards
  • More multiplayer gameplay experiences for both PvP and PvE


Over the past few months we have worked to increase communication and transparency. The amount of feedback and input I have received from you as part of this process is overwhelming and humbling. I feel proud to be at the helm of a game that has such dedicated fans. We make games because we love to watch the fun and competition they bring to gamers like us. Thank you for listening, reading and responding and please continue to share your feedback with us on the forums, on Reddit, on social media and on other fan sites. We value your comments and we are listening!

The next Roadmap update will arrive in the early part of 2018 and will highlight the changes we plan through subsequent months. I’ll leave you with this quote as it sounds like me: “I'm not one to dismiss an idea just because it sounds a little crazy.’ —Sith Inquisitor, in a conversation with Talos Drellik.
