SWTOR players find out when Nico Okarr joins their team
One of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s newest companions, the gunslinger Niko Okarr, has been the subject of a lot of speculation and curiosity. While BioWare has been quite adamant about telling players that they need to subscribe right now to secure Niko for future play, the studio hasn’t been forthcoming with the details about when and how he’ll join player teams.

Some of that curiosity can be put to rest, as CM Eric Musco clarified that Niko will only come on board in the upcoming expansion, not before: “Nico Okarr works a bit differently than the companions you are comparing him too. To avoid any spoilers I don’t want to say too much, but you recruit Nico Okarr into your Alliance in Knights of the Fallen Empire, and have him as a companion thereafter.”

EpicViking They are abit of cheapskates on giving away cosmetic gear weapons and mounts as rewards. They mostly put it in packs or as rep rewards and now you even get an extra reward for doing weekly in the form of complete gear set for 1 companion. 
And do not start about the expensive mounts in the ingame shop.

Chuki792 I never expected him to be available before launch, i assumed he would be there with the new companions, but i did however expect the other items to be handed to use monthly as we subbed. :(

I understand they want to save nico for the launch, but they could at least have given us the other stuff, monthly to hold us over while we wait for the expansion. Now its just a sub sitting there ticking away inw ait for the expansion release, and no way to enjoy any of those cool items beforehand. Kinda sad really. Granted i still try to do the story of some of the classes i havent played through, but it doesn’t change the fact that most other mmos would probably have given out the items every month as you sub. Or maybe im just giving to much credit to other devs i don’t know.

sray155 No they do not have every right to be pissed. It was apparent to anyone with a functioning brain who can read everything that was said that he would be part of the expansion. Expecting him to be unlocked for the main game prior to the expansion was ridiculous, and the lateness of them even commenting on it should show that as well. They obviously thought the message got across prior to this announcement, and it did. This shouldn’t even have been necessary but gamers are becoming such entitled little crybabies about everything they had to say something.

Bobuster Janio2 Jaedia Wratts  buaahhaha and people wonder why others are confused? It is EA Bioware…read …every…word…carefully or you will be sorely disappointed. If they do not say it explicitly then it will not happen.

I’m subbed, have been through all of the promotional phases, and would have been subbed anyway; but anyone who subbed to get the character as a main game unlock has every right to be hugely pissed off about this. This is a complete crock.
I’ve been quite relaxed about what information, and when, they’ve revealed thus far, but this is way out of line. They should have been upfront about that from the start. I haven’t checked the official forums yet, but I suspect they’re in quite the uproar. I think I’m going to go add my voice to the chorus of the displeased.
