Hey folks,

Game Update 5.2 will be launching on Tuesday, April 11th. As we begin to get closer to that date we want to talk more about some of what you can expect in the update. Starting on Monday, here are some of the 5.2 topics we will begin talking about:
  • New Galaxy Map
  • PvP on Iokath
  • The Daily Area - What's different and what's the same
  • Access to Iokath - Who, When, How
  • Choosing a Faction on Iokath

We are also planning to do our 5.2 Twitch stream in the next couple of weeks. On that stream we will not only talk about 5.2, but show you some of it as well. Thanks everyone!

Awesome! Thanks for the heads-up, Eric. I'm really looking forwards to this update.

If pvp on Iokath is a thing that at least gets a bullet point then that's good news I guess.

If Iokath is the starting point of a breadcrumb quest to change factions (even superficially) I'd be happy.

I'm very much looking forward to a new Galaxy map, especially if it makes it easier to find planets and space missions. I'm also very excited that companions are returning.

I do hope there are stronghold upgrades or a new stronghold on the not-so-distant horizon.

I'm seeing a few things as well: Change in factions option, amd new galaxy map. Now humor me for a second: Maybe they are changing the falaxy map to allow imp characters who change factions to go to pub planets, and vice verca! Who knows guys. Sorry for the double post
