A quiet news week, though it did include more information about how companions will work in KotFE. We also discuss an interview with lead writer Charles Boyd.
You can see Charlie’s video where he opens a hypercrate of Wild Star Explorer’s packs here.
In his Yavin 4 stronghold, Charlie has created what he calls his “Statue Room”:

- Following the post summarising last week’s livestream, Eric Musco (Community Manager) answered several more questions:
- You can meet/recruit companions not belonging to your class; level, presence and influence add to your companion’s combat effectiveness; all changes to the companion system apply when leveling 1-60; companion gear in defunct slots will be mailed to your character [post]
- Influence is the new name for affection
- Existing affection will carry over into KotFE
- Companions will no longer have specific crafting bonuses in KotFE
- The Wild Space Explorer’s Pack is now available (Dulfy’s updated preview).
- Players are warned that altering their hosts file as a workaround for local networking issues preventing them from patching is not recommended.
- Each week, three blogs will be published for each mirror class pair, starting this week with Jedi Knights and Sith Warriors. One blog will detail the class changes in KotFE, and the other two will give the class stories (with spoilers) for each class (for those who are new to the game and are starting with an instant level 60).
- Charles Boyd was interviewed on Jedipedia.
- Alexander Freed is authoring the novel Star Wars Battlefront: Twilight Company, coming on 3 November.
Congratulations to our guildmate and friend Ferrous Terran who is getting married to Amber on Sunday!
Happy Birthday to our Ootini guildmate and Jar Jar Joyrider, Dekion.
