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!
