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.

My biggest question is, how is Bioware going to handle Jaesa? She could have gone light side or dark side depending your choices in the Sith Warrior storyline? I’m guessing the mission itself will be neutral enough for it not to make a difference, but the dialogue will be drastically different hopefully.

Dnote It’s on purpose. Bioware wants to save the heavy hitters for the end, since they have the most influence with the Republic and Empire. Theron is working on the small ones like Kaliyo and Jorgan while Lana works on the bigger ones like Jaesa and Kira.

I don’t want to kill Gault now.  The time to kill him was when you finally tracked him down on Tattooine, after criticizing other hunters you meet along the way for taking his money and disrespecting the spirit of the Great Hunt.  And then you… (are forced to) take his money, let him live and fake his death and join your crew, making a mockery of the Great Hunt and yourself a massive hypocrite.  Way to go, Bioware.  Fantastic storytelling there.

Chuki792 Dnote The thing about all the other mysteries, even the stupid ones like Yuuzhan Vong, is that they were cast against a clear Star Wars background and the core pillars of that universe from the films is what rose to the top and enabled victory.

Zakuul, the Eternal Fleet, the Knights, none of them feel like they are part of the Star Wars universe, because everything that could connect them to the universe as we know it, Jedi, Sith, Republic, Empire, is slowly being removed from the story with each chapter we get.

I can’t see how the Outlander, the hero, can call upon what we know and love about Star Wars to win this one, they seem to be pushing our character away from the lore and into something that is completely unknown.

The story should be sending us back to our homeworld, liberating our government, inserting our overpowered ship into the fleet, then taking the fight to Zakuul. But instead, we’re leaving everything behind, everything that made us who we are and that we believe in (or at least our character).

Get another year of chapters under the games belt, then I’ll sub for one month so I can own them all forever. You all starved for content people feel free to keep giving them money for “sub rewards”, I’ll continue to milk EAware dry.
