Things are still being updated in the rogue server known as Star Wars Galaxies Legends in 2020, and the latest community transmission newsletter has compiled all of the things that are new and incoming. Of course, the newsletter talks up its recent update, which added a hard mode for the Blackscale Avatar Station and a Galactic Civil War Flashpoint system for easier to find and more structured PvP.

But what might be of interest to players and future players is a few sneak peeks at the planet Bespin in screenshot form and some early details about Empire Day 2020, which promises to have a variety of live events, along with new badges and collections. “Expect to see some different faces at our Live Events and you can count on us to deliver some new goodies that you can truly pay homage to your faction with in style,” lauds the post. Bespin doesn’t have a release date, but the player devs have been working on it for quite a while now.

You can download the latest newsletter from the official forums, and we’ve included a breakdown of the new content added in 2020 from YouTuber and friend of the site Napyet in the embed below.

My brother and I joined this server about a month ago. While he has engaged with it far more heavily than me, it’s still such an impressive emu and really the first one we’ve explored. Galaxies was such an inspired MMO, it’s a shame the design philosophies don’t have mass appeal in the short attention span year of 2020. Bespin is exciting. Can’t wait.

Darth Vader: Is he alive?

Lando Calrissian: [checks the readout on the carbonite slab] Yes, he’s alive… and in perfect hibernation.

Darth Vader: [to Boba Fett] He’s all yours, bounty hunter. [to Lando] Now, take the wookiee and Leia to my ship.

Lando Calrissian: That wasn’t part of the deal! You said the wookiee and Leia would stay under my protection!

Darth Vader: I am altering the deal. Pray I don’t alter it any further. [departs in an elevator]

Aweseome stuff, SWGL!

The new Bespin map looks better than the base game in those screenshots. Super excited to have a new world to play on.

It’s pretty exciting seeing the implementation of Bespin making it into the game soon. Can’t wait!

Yes! I sat down last February with several guides open, and got myself through installation. So happy I did!

So happy for you!

I know how badly you wanted to get it installed and yes it’s overwhelming, but you’re in now!!! Perseverance paid off!!! Short term pain, long term “gaming” gain! :)

The one and only!

Probably the most incredible single player game I’ve ever had the pleasure to play through (several times).

Buddy was playing too at the time and was so cool when talking about this and that. You did what? Amazing!!! i did it this completely different way! So many ways to tackle the same objective.

I picked it up on steam for a buck (nostalgia reasons more less i suppose) a few years back, installed it and i can’t get invested again, i forgot how merciless, difficult, brutal, challenging and unabashedly unforgiving it is (no wonder i loved it).

It tests your skills, your patience, your creativity, but tbh it felt clunky (old game), even installed the mod which i didn’t like at all? Peeps love it i felt like it changed the feel of it. I’ll give a another go eventually.
