The next chapter of Star Wars: The Old Republic – Knights of the Fallen Empire is available now.
Titled The GEMINI Deception, the update is available to download right now, and is free to all existing Star Wars: The Old Republic subscribers.
The story – now stay with us here – sees the Outlander prepare for the ultimate showdown against the Eternal Empire. Alongside the mysterious and deadly droid, Scorpio, the Outlander’s team must infiltrate a Zakuulan warship and face a force of elite soldiers led by Arcann.
Who’s naming these things? Anyway, it sounds tricky, so good luck.
Also included are two new gameplay updates:
- GEMINI Cartel Pack: The new ‘GEMINI’ Cartel Pack offers players a new GEMINI Pulse Weapon effect plus rare vehicles and armor sets.
- Dark vs. Light Event: Earn rewards in this new summer event by picking your side at www.swtor.com/dark-vs-light.
Subscribers of Star Wars: The Old Republic can play Knights of the Fallen Empire from Chapter 1 through the current chapter, The GEMINI Deception, for free. As part of the Subscriber Rewards Program, those subscribed by 1st July will also receive an in-game HK-55 Victory Stronghold Decoration. It’s what we’ve always wanted.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
