Things we might hear about…

Update 7.5 – Story Update “Desperate Defiance” on Hutta

While we were not given any details, we were told that the next story update will take place on Hutta, as a counterpart to Ord Mantell. Both factions will be able to go to Hutta. This will be in Update 7.5. You can actually see Hutta in the key art.

Update 7.5 – Lane Vizla Basilisk Droid Repair Quest

We also know that the Lane Vizla and Basilisk Droid quest started on Ruhnuk will be reaching its conclusion in Update 7.5. The developers said, when her research is finished, it will be “adorable and terrifying, and you will have your work cut out for you.”

Update 7.5 – New Spring Event on Dantooine

The developers said that they have seasonal events Nar Shaddaa Nightlife in the summer, Feast of Prosperity in the fall, and Life Day in the winter, but nothing in the Spring. We were not told anything else except that it will take place on Dantooine. No date is given, but spring is often considered the April-May months.

What will be coming up after 7.4.1 and 7.5? While we don’t have many hints yet, we do know that there will eventually be…

DirectX 12 & Improved Steam Integrations

In a previous developer post, the devs said…

Also on the tech side, we are working on further updates such as improved integrations with Steam and updating to DirectX 12. We’ll start talking about all of this and more in the coming weeks. Source

With 64-bit now in the game, and DirectX 12 hopefully on the way, it’s possible we may see graphics updates in the future.

GTN Changes?

In addition to the recent changes to the GTN, the developers spoke in the past about potentially adding a buy-order system – you can put in a request to buy an item at a certain price, and other players can fulfill the order. Whether this will be added or not still is unclear, now that the new GTN is up and functional.

  • This will be an overhaul of how the GTN Works to increase usability make finding what you want easier and buy or sell items at a fair price all while providing you with more Market information than ever before to help players make informed decisions (source developer livestream 7.3)
  • We will also be building a commodity order system that lets you place orders for specific items and get them at a competitive price (source developer livestream 7.3)
