I'd like to know this as well
"It was not your ships or your men or your vaunted 'fight for freedom' that won this, the final battle of the war. It was by the actions of one person–the Jedi Revan–that you prevailed. Revan's strategies and tactics defeated the best of us. Even Mandalore himself was taken aback by the ferocity, the tenacity, and the subtlety of Revan's plans."

Yes, but it takes away dev resources from the main game.
Like... new pve planets or new pvp warzones.

If only they could integrate this with "ground" PvP. Attacking each other with each side having its own capital ship. Whoever wins the space fight then starts invading the enemy capital ship by boarding it then it turns into sort of a Voidstar attack.

That's probably just a dream and will stay that way like it has across 2 different Star Wars games now.

If all it does outside of space PvP is raise the level cap to 60, then it will have given me far more than my money's worth.

(Also, if it changes the loading screen into a spaceship fight, that would be sweet too.)

There will not be a new planet and there is no increase to the level cap with this expansion. We really wanted to focus this expansion around space off of rails where you get to fight your friends (and enemies!)

To that point, there will not be any Space based PvE content with the Digital Expansion. It is only going to be PvP.

Awesome answers!!11!!!!!1! If you told me I needed to grind a new PvP suit I was gonna...um...get mad!
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

It's free. So no matter what they do, you've gotten your money's worth.

Thank you for the fast response, can't wait to pew pew in space!

And then all discussion ceases. It's as though millions of voices cried out in hope, then were suddenly silenced. Silliness aside, I am totally okay with this. Ever since I heard of the SSSP, this is basically what I expected. Off rails space PVP and nothing else. There'll be more to come with the next expansion, it's not like this is where the new content ends.

P.S.
When I had started writing this, nobody had responded after Eric yet XD Guess I missed my window.
