Hi everyone,

We wanted to give you a snapshot overview of the next update thats coming, Game Update 7.1.1, which is currently targeting a Fall 2022 release:
  • Galactic Seasons 3! We will have more details available at a later time, but we can share that this upcoming season is Galactic Gaming themed.
  • Feast of Prosperity Event returns with new rewards
  • Features for Outfitter for ability to name and favorite outfits
  • Conquest objectives for the Manaan Daily Area
  • Class balance changes (see below for more details)
Its important to note that this release could change in terms of timeline and the above content includes what is currently slated for this update at the time of this post.

I know that many of you were wondering about the release of Galactic Seasons 3 in particular, and Im happy to share that its release is targeted for this upcoming update. Were looking forward to sharing additional details soon, so be on the lookout for more info soon!

As stated in an earlier dev post, there will not be a phase of PTS for this update, however, please see the 7.1.1 Balance post that Chris Durel created that offers more insights into our plans for class balance changes. If you have any feedback, we encourage you to share your thoughts in the linked thread.

We also have seen the feedback players have provided for the R-4 bosses. The team is focusing on making adjustments to the following for 7.1.1:
  • Reducing IP-CPTs health on Veteran so the DPS check isnt as demanding
  • Adjusting the difficulty in the Overgrown Hallways to be less deadly in Story Mode
  • Reduce Lady Dominiques health slightly in Story Mode
  • Damage from Nihrot is no longer reflectable
  • Nihrot suppression grenades should no longer get caught up in the ceiling tentacles
  • The issues some players are experiencing with IP-CPT falling into the floor
While these seem to be the most common reports we are seeing for the bosses, we do welcome additional feedback. If you are reporting difficulty you are experiencing with any of the R-4 bosses, please also include details of the gear you are using.

Lastly, access to the Collectors Edition vendor has been highly requested over the years, so we are creating a path for players to access this vendor with the purchase of an access pass that can be obtained from the Cartel Market. Once the item is consumed, it will unlock the ability to speak to the CE vendor, grant access to the VIP area where the vendor is located, and it will unlock account-wide. Below are the items that are available on the vendor:
  • 7 companion customizations (Ashara Zavros, 3x Deshade, Kaliyo Djannis, Mako, Vette)
  • 5 pieces of the Imperial Trooper armor set
  • 4 Dye Modules
  • 3 Pets
  • 2 Statue stronghold decorations
  • 1 'Scanner' helmet
We will share more details about Game Update 7.1.1 in future forum posts and articles, so stay tuned for more!
