3. Holofeed

  • Game Update 5.9 was deployed a couple of days late, followed a week later by Game Update 5.9a.
  • Game Update 5.9.1 is scheduled for 22 May, and includes the Nar Shaddaa Night Life event.
  • The drop rate for the new 240 augments has NOT changed.
  • Charles Boyd revealed that Paxton Rall, an NPC found on Dromund Kaas, is part of a promotion destined for later in the year. He’ll be “disappeared” until his time is ripe.
  • Charles Boyd confirmed some fan theories about the Sith ritual used to convert mass death into something Vitiate/Valkorian could use.
  • The EA Q4 2018 earnings conference call said nothing about SWTOR (again), though it still appears as an active “Console/PC” title on a slide.
  • Casey Hudson, recently returned to BioWare and its General Manager, has posted twice (16 April, 10 May), discussing his return, BioWare as a company, and their vision for Anthem.
  • There may be a new Dragon Age game in the works, though it’ll no doubt happen a good while after Anthem is released.
  • Another animated series is coming from Dave Filoni: Star Wars Resistance, which will be anime style, set after the events of The Force Awakens.
  • A rumour states that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in production, scheduled to be in cinemas in December 2020.
  • The range of Star Wars toys grows wider: now there’s a Lego Y-Wing, and a limited edition sail barge that’s four feet long.
