OotiniCast Episode 325

We discuss what’s coming in Game Update 5.7, along with some general Star Wars news. Our guest is a Dutch player very new to SWTOR, whose enthusiasm is truly infectious!

1. Introduction

Chill has started another cosplay character: Chillstorm, based on the X-Men character.

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Agent Ironspider!

Please send your tips to ootinicast@gmail.com before the next show for a chance to win a Taunfawn or M8-3R droid code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.

3. Holofeed

  • The Ranked PvP Leaderboard has been disabled while BioWare determine why incorrect data is being displayed.
  • Kieth’s Roadmap for 2018 is still weeks away, but in the meantime Eric Musco has provided a summary of what’s in Game Update 5.7 “Legacy of the Creators” coming on 23 January.
  • Class-exclusive companions Risha, Corso (Smuggler only) and Andronikos (Inquisitor only) will return in Game Update 5.7. At least for now, there is no way for the other classes to add these companions to their Alliance.
  • The only hint we have so far that there will be a SWTOR expansion in 2018 is this Twitch chat entry from Keith:

Hey all, I’d love to stay and chat some more, but I gotta run. So, I’ll leave you with, not commenting on next year’s expansion plans. You’ll have to wait to hear about that!

  • In case you missed it, SWTOR’s Holonet was updated back in September 2017.
  • John Williams will score Star Wars Episode IX.
  • Leland Chee has revealed why the Star Wars Story Group (unofficially) decided to declare the Expanded U Universe as non-canon.
  • The synopsis of the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story has been revealed.
