Hey folks,

I have seen a few questions around how the “Start at Level 60” will work that comes with Fallen Empire. I want to start by saying that we will be releasing a blog when we get a bit closer to launch that describes all of the nitty gritty details and walks you through everything. But for now I wanted to cover a bit about how it works and address some of the things I have been seeing.

As a subscriber, when you get Fallen Empire you will receive one free level 60 character. This character must be a new character, you cannot “boost” an existing character up to 60. Beyond that first one which is included free with KOTFE, you can purchase additional level 60 characters through the Cartel Market at any time. I know that this raised the question of character limits as well. In talking with the development team, the plan is to increase the subscriber maximum character limit per server by 2 for the Fallen Empire launch. Not confirmation it will happen, but it is definitely their goal!

I know you still have many questions, such as how this impacts Class story, etc. We will be revealing all of these details down the line as we get closer to launch.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if I understand but when you say new level 60 character does that mean I can't use any of my existing level 60 characters to do the Knights of the Fallen Empire content or does it just mean that I can't take a lower level character, at say level 24, and automatically boost them up to 60?

It's kind of confusing.

So basically you'll be selling level 60 characters? CM update of sorts?

Thank you for clarifying that Eric.

Now I have one final question, if you can, on the grouping, Is the missions class specific, i.e. Smuggler, Jedi Knight or generic? If generic are we going to have to do them like we did on SOR and Ziost where when I group with my boyfriend we had to do them twice or like on Makeb we can do them once?

Thank you for your time.

Yep, it does look that way.

It sounds like to me you can't bumped up a lower level to 60 from my understanding.

It shouldn't be confusing. He directly says that you cannot boost an existing character to 60.

I can't imagine that they'd 'ever' do anything to the game that would cause us to lose our strongholds.
