Game Update 2.7 is Now Live on PTS!

Game Update 2.7 is now live on our Public Test Server! We encourage you to explore the new content and features! Get on, check everything out, and give us your feedback by posting on the Public Test Server forum.

Game Update 2.7 on PTS contains a host of new features including:

  • New Flashpoints: Korriban Incursion and Assault on Tython – The beginnings of “Forged Alliances,” the new major storyline in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™.
  • New Warzone: Quesh Huttball Pit – Baron Deathmark hosts the latest Huttball match on Quesh. Toxic sludge pipes will raid down acidic pain on anyone unlucky enough to get caught in the downpour!
  • New Galactic Starfighter Domination Map: Denon Exosphere -The map features a wreckage field from the ongoing battle, a large strategic space station, and Republic and Imperial Capital Ships clashing over the ecumenopolis planet Denon.
  • New Nightmare Mode Feature - Nightmare Power – Starting with Nightmare Mode Dread Fortress, a new feature is being introduced to Nightmare Mode Operations - Nightmare Power. This buff grants the usual additional health and damage to enemies that have been added to previous Nightmare Modes. Anyone powerful and coordinated enough to defeat Dread Master Brontes while under the effect of Nightmare Power will be granted a new unique title!
    At a future date, we will remove this buff, leaving the new mechanics in place but the health and damage dealt will return to usual hard mode values, and the title will no longer be possible to obtain.
