Players in Star Wars: The Old Republic are clearly taking a tour of classic Star Wars planets in the updates leading to the rumored expansion. The interplanetary bus stops at Dantooine next.Star Wars Galaxies? The more you know…
Game Update 5.10.3 for SWTOR, called the Dantooine Incursion, will include a new playable area, which means that it’s not an instance like some of the more recently introduced planets. According to the Twitter announcement and the announcement page, Dantooine will feature a limited time event that will fall into rotation with events like the Rakghoul and Gree events.
It wouldn’t be a BioWare update without a heavy dose of story. The announcement page presents it like this: “Elite Imperial forces have infiltrated Dantooine and established a hidden base on the planet’s surface, aiming to cripple the Republic’s efforts with a series of surgical strikes.” Of course, it couldn’t be that simple, the Empire originally hired a group of pirates called the Nova Blades, which you might remember from the Rishi storyline, to cause chaos. Unfortunately, they are now causing chaos for the Empire, too.
Look for more information to drop in today’s livestream at 3:00 p.m. EDT, and look for Update 5.10.3 to hit the live servers in April.
