Hey folks,

Since we are formally in 2018 now, Happy New Year to all of you! We know there have been some questions about what is coming next, so we wanted to give you some details. The big “what is coming” type question will be addressed as always in Keith’s Roadmap, which is being worked on now. I would expect a few more weeks before you can read that. However, before the roadmap is in your hands, let’s talk about the next Game Update!

Game Update 5.7 – Legacy of the Creators
Release date: January 23rd
  • New Operation Boss: Scyva
    • Available in Story and Veteran Mode
  • Returning Companions! (these Missions will be Class-specific)
    • Risha & Corso
    • Andronikos
  • New Cartel Market Pack
  • Various bug fixes / updates

Although we will save the specifics for the Roadmap, beyond 5.7 you can expect additional Companions returning, a new Flashpoint, and more! Thanks everyone, we are looking forward to an exciting 2018.

So are all the returning companions going to be class specific from here out? I hope not, I made a smuggler clone of my agent and I'd like to be able to get Vector for her.

I appreciate the update Eric! I can't help but notice that the update is a little thin...I hope there's a lot more in the roadmap...
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

Neat.

What does class specific mean in this context though?

...so as of right now, no resolution to the current storyline and no hope on the horizon of more story chapters for at least another two months, then?

I have to say it is disappointing the Theron arc is not being wound up.

I was really expecting the new flashpoint with the final reveal of Theron's plan this month, but it seems we'll have to wait longer

Did it get pushed back?

I seem to recall something bioware stated about the 4th boss and the FP being released at the same time. Now I'll have to go digging.
