Titled Fame and Fortune, the patch’s keystone feature is the addition of a new Huttball arena. Players can now take to the Sky Shredder to battle out in the game’s PvP sports mode: “Located on the scenic world of Vandin, Huttball fanatics can look forward to new and deadlier challenges as they battle for victory!”
The patch did throw free players a bone by allowing them to chat in guilds and groups without restrictions. There are a few other changes, such as being able to enter Ilum’s PvP areas as a group, that bear checking out. Additionally, BioWare is preparing a double rewards event (that’s double XP and CXP earned) that will run from October 9th through the 16th.
