Game Update 1.5: HK-51 Activated is on Public Test Server!

Game Update 1.5 is now on the Public Test Server (PTS) bringing with it new missions and an exciting new companion:

  • Get ready for an action-packed adventure to earn control of one of the galaxy’s most deadly assassins, HK-51. Submerged beneath the icy surface of Belsavis lies a derelict ship and those who are brave enough to venture through the wreckage will earn a powerful new ally, the ruthless assassination droid, HK-51! See the “HK-51 Revealed” video now.
  • Explore Section X, a previously untouched area of the prison world of Belsavis. The Dread Masters’ servants are searching for a powerful and ancient weapon. If they find what they are looking for they may overturn the war between the Empire and Republic. Journey to Section X and nullify the Dread Masters’ dangerous plot.
  • Travel to Denova to take on the Operation: Explosive Conflict – now with a Nightmare Mode! Teams who complete this new mode can earn the final pieces of the Dread Guard gear set.
