Star Wars: The Old Republic offers more details about ‘United Forces’ server merges
The latest fall roadmap video is out, and as you could no doubt expect, it discusses the game’s upcoming server merges – which we covered in detail on Monday – extensively. Following the United Forces merge, which cuts the game back to just five servers across the US and Europe, there will no longer be a designated RP server, although the developers would like to still make RP-supporting spaces within the game; the hope is that the merge will cut down on win trading in PvP as well as improving in-game population.
The developers aren’t ready to talk about next expansion plans, but they are planning out returning companions including Andronikus, Ensign Temple, Scourge, and Keira. The development team is also considering adding back in some of the old-style PvP rewards. Check out the full dev stream video down below, and stay tuned for more SWTOR fun from the MOP staff today, as we’ll be streaming the game this afternoon and dispatching our Hyperspace Beacon column on the roadmap as well.
