Hey everyone,

During our last Producer Livestream we announced that Chapter XVI: The Battle of Odessen would go live on July 28th (early access on the 26th); as of today we have decided to move the release to August 11th (early access on the 9th). This Chapter reveals the climactic ending to the Fallen Empire story and we want to make sure it delivers the emotional impact that the story deserves. We are going to take this time to push it further in an effort to bring the Knights of the Fallen Empire’s final Chapter to a fitting ending – one that, in the tradition of all great Star Wars stories, leaves you wanting more! Thank you for your patience and we look forward to hearing your feedback post release.

Although we are moving the date, we want to reassure you that we are taking the necessary steps to ensure that you will not have any access issues when the time comes:
  • Players who qualified in July for the Sub Reward will still receive the July Subscriber reward on July 26th.
  • Players who qualified for early access by being a Sub on July 1 will still have early access to the Chapter on August 9th.
  • Players subscribed as of July 28th, will be granted access to Chapter XVI when it goes live on August 11th.

We are looking forward to sharing Chapter XVI with you and give you the chance to face your destiny as the Outlander - Thank you for your continued support!

Why am I not surprised by yet another delay on something?

It's worth noting that this is the only chapter that has been "late" so far so congrats on that.

No worries, thanks.

Please do not push back the timetable for telling us whether upcoming "group content" is an actual Operation or not.

Very true. Although both EC and Guss had/have been delayed as well, I still think it's impressive that the "bulk" of the chapters were released on time. Kudos to them! Last year when I heard their plan, I expected them to fall behind after 1 chapter, not because I doubt their skills, it's just that any number of things can happen that would cause a delay...I'm pleased (and shocked) that this is the 1st.
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

So I guess bonus chapter will be at September, not August, so everyone have to subscribe for one additional month and there won't be any content till late October))
By using Referal link you'l gain ingame special rewards and appreciation of a person sharing it.
Real thanks, if you'll choose mine
