SWTOR launches heist chapter ‘Profit and Plunder’ on May 3rd
If you have early access for the latest chapter in the continuing saga of the Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion Knights of the Fallen Empire, then you are likely playing that right now. But if you’ve finished and are now champing at the bit for Chapter 13: Profit and Plunder, you will have to wait no further than May 3rd for early access.
According to the Producer Livestream today, the next chapter will feature a heist and two former companions many players have been asking for: Vette and Gault — although people might have been asking for Gault so that they could finally kill him. The Creative Lead Designer Charles Boyd said on the stream that Chapter 13 is “definitely a more humorous chapter” because of its inclusion of these two characters.
As with the other chapters, look for another HK-55-inspired subscriber reward. If you are subscribed to the game by May 1st, you will be able to change the look of your ship droid, both 2V-R8 and C2-N2, to HK-55’s gold and black color pattern as well as jump into the chapter on the 3rd versus the official release date of May 5th.
Also, look for the Eternal Championship and the Bowdaar recruitment to hit the servers with Chapter 13. Now, we could get into the breakdown of what the Eternal Championship is about, but we already have, and so have many other great SWTOR-community Youtubers.
Lastly, the producers on the livestream mentioned double XP, a droid mini pet, and other prizes and events surrounding the unofficial Star Wars Day, May the 4th. Look for details on all of that coming soon.
