Everything about SWTOR Patch 5.2 The War for Iokath Share this:

This article combines everything about SWTOR Patch 5.2 “The War for Iokath”. I have split it to BEFORE LAUNCH and AFTER LAUNCH. The BEFORE section contains trailers, previews, promos and dev posts. The AFTER section contains official release information, gameplay, guides and walkthroughs.



As the Republic and Empire reignite their age-old rivalry in a deadly battle for control of the ultimate superweapon, you alone – as Outlander and commander of the galaxy’s most powerful fleet – can decide the outcome. Choose to align your forces with the Republic or Empire in a brand new storyline, explore the ancient and highly-advanced planet of Iokath, or team up with allies to defeat Tyth – a deadly droid superweapon – in the start of a new Operation!

Do you have what it takes to secure the superweapon before it unleashes destruction across the galaxy? The WAR FOR IOKATH is coming – prepare for battle!

The following 8 links lead to 8 short cinematic cutscenes showing the intros to all classic SWTOR Class Stories. Bioware changed them visually to be more in line with the KOTFE and KOTET style of animation, lightning and camera behavior.

    Iokath is the most annoying mess to navigate yet..

    Unpleasant surroundings don’t help either, no tree or sand-dune in sight.

    I regret buying a 6 months subscription, because it will not “play” this nonsense and the sub will run out before we get something else.

    Still at least a chance the operation will be good, I guess.

    Is it confirmed that we’ll be choosing exclusively between the Republic or the Empire? In the early announcements, it sounded like it was a three-way decision between Republic, Empire and the Alliance/Zakuul. Now the descriptions mostly just say “Republic or Empire” though I’m wondering if that means that you have the -option- of choosing between Republic or Empire.

      There’s no official information on that yet, Kang. Hopefully tomorrow during the Producer Live Stream they will confirm the available choices.
