SWTOR subscriber rewards include playing as HK-55

The next chapter for Star Wars: The Old Republic’s expansion storyline won’t arrive until February 11th, but BioWare is attempting to give players a reason to subscribe before that with a new reward program.

In a livestream today, the studio announced its new subscriber reward program and detailed two of the bonuses that players will receive for becoming a member. Subs can not only earn HK-55 as a companion but also get the chance to play as the assassin droid in an exclusive chapter coming sometime next year.

Knight of the Fallen Empire’s Chapter 10: Anarchy in Paradise will arrive in early February and include the return of a certain Imperial Agent companion while giving players a choice that leads to serious consequences.

Space_Ghostal SwobyJ Considering how much they’re treating some droid characters as people, it seems natural.
A future hinted-by-lore event could have all the droids leave to another galaxy so it doesn’t interfere too much with the idea of original canon.

SwobyJ Space_Ghostal Exactly! A hero class post 65 would work me as long as I can use the class in other things like Ops, flashpoints, or PVP. It really does bother me there seems to be no hope of new classes in the game. I know it would be hard to integrate them into older content but this is why it needs to be like the Death Knight in WOW.

Greaterdivinity A Dad Supreme It’s like when politicians are asked a question and they give a completely unrelated answer. It doesn’t matter what you do or say, the end result is still going to be the same. :P

SwobyJ BryanCo  So still no Bounty Hunter comps?  They’ll probably end up with Skadge first…….

CastagereShaikura DigitalQ Yes. “Make it a choice!” “Nah, kill him off no matter what. We gotta sell him as DLC.”
RP = dead.

alexjwillis No way I’m subbing several months to this game. So as a story completionist, I just feel a bit burned and more interested in playing other stuff.

Space_Ghostal Droid Class, start late levels. Races being different droids. Story expansion where synthetics from outside the galaxy threaten it. :)

TrippinNinja “They probably thought this would be a home run but thanks to the overhype people are bitching up a storm.” Sounds like a normal day in SWTOR PR then.

BryanCo Its Kaliyo in main story and Bowdaar in side story. Kaliyo main plot, Bowdaar in an arena solo activity. So yes, a Smuggler companion.

Okay, after putting some thought into this, I don’t highly dislike it. It just isn’t going to get and keep me in.

Chapter X – February? I hoped January. In fact, many hoped for a early, late December release as the ‘surprise’. Gives me more time to NOT subscribe and to work on class stories more, I guess. Glad Kaliyo and Bowdaar are returning in whatever forms though.

Sub by Jan 11 for HK-55 and his mission – …No. I haven’t started KOTFE anyway, and I don’t care enough for HK to do this.

Sub through Jan 11-Aug 1 for HK-55 bonus chapter – …No. I’m not subscribing for several months straight, on a wish that I get quality content.

Monthly subscriber rewards – Sounds like HK-55 related cosmetics or fluff or whatever. Okay.

Early access dates – I don’t care about Early Access, especially given the possibility of basically just being an early tester for bugs.

Soo… yeah. Not too excited. Interested, but not excited.

I’m not subscribed now. I was thinking of subscribing soon, but it probably won’t happen. I was considering subscribing in January and that’s still possible, but I do NOT like continuous-subscriber-lures.

If this is just Season 1 of KOTFE and we keep the base and general gameplay of KOTFE going on into ‘Season 2’ (2016-2017?), then I can see things like Niko and HK-55 entering a cash shop. So yeah. I’ll do that instead, probably.

On the plus side, in terms of CONTENT CONCEPT, I’m very pleased. A mission to get HK-55 back? I hope its more than just a short convo. A ‘bonus’ chapter where we play as HK-55! Sounds like it could be like a ‘interim DLC’ between ‘Seasons’ and fun in a new way. Chapter X? I like the concept and what it sounds like it’ll contain – I only wish it was for some point January, not February. Doesn’t give me the highest hopes for Chapter XI for February but we’ll see.
