OotiniCast Episode 244

This week we talk mainly about January’s Producer Livestream, including the delay of the Eternal Championship until Chapter 11 and some tantalizing details for the new warzone coming sometime in the next few months.

3. Holofeed

  • Last Thursday, BioWare held its January Producer Livestream, which can be watched on Twitch (or thanks to Dulfy you can see it on YouTube). Eric Musco subsequently posted a summary of what was covered.
  • The new warzone, which we will find out more about in February’s Producer Livestream, features a variant of the King of the Hill game mode, which appears to be quite similar to that implemented in Star Wars Battlefront’s Drop Zone mode.
  • The Eternal Championship, which has been delayed from Chapter 10 to Chapter 11, was summarised, though it seems the gear rewards have yet to be decided. BioWare is asking the community for their suggestions on the item level of the rewards for the tiered rewards (for completing 5, 7 and all 10 encounters). Steven Chew, the developer coordinating the work on the Eternal Championship, is also asking for feedback.
  • Star Wars: Episode VIII has been delayed from 26 May 2017 to 15 December 2017. However, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will still release on 16 December 2016.

The article describing the link between Kylo Ren’s lightsaber and KOTOR that overbyte linked to us can be found here. It references text found in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary.

  1. Hey guys first I’d like to thank you guys for all your work and your contribution to the community. I have been listening to this and other swtor podcasts for a while and it’s sad the direction that the game is going and lately it seems all the podcasters are running low on steam. The lack of new group content and the bugs that have plagued swtor have pushed my decision to cancel my sub that’s been running since the game launched in 2011. I guess I’m just a kid with a room full of toys and wanted too much.
