Star Wars Galaxies Gets An Update

Posted By Dustin on January 15, 2008

MEDIA ALERT – JANUARY 15, 2008

ALL-NEW SPACE-BASED CONTENT INTRODUCED TO STAR WARS GALAXIES(TM) THIS MONTH

New Space-Based Quests, Collections and a Heroic Encounter Add a Host of New Content and Rewards in Chapter 8: The Nova Orion Crisis

LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment today announced the release of Chapter 8: The Nova Orion Crisis to Star Wars Galaxies subscribers, featuring a host of new content set in the farthest reaches of space, including new quests, collections and a heroic encounter.

Not since the game's first expansion, "Jump to Lightspeed,” has so much space-based content been added to Star Wars Galaxies. Through this new Chapter, both Rebel and Imperial pilots will take on challenging content for great rewards.

• New Heroic Encounter Set on a Star Destroyer
An Imperial captain has gone rogue and taken his Star Destroyer with him. Having jettisoned most of his crew, he flees with a small contingent of fiercely loyal followers. Imperial players work for the Empire to recover the ship; Rebels will take this vessel for themselves by any means necessary.

• New Quest Hub for Master-Level Pilots
Secrets and violence are tearing apart Nova Orion Industries, a starship research and development company. A tragic misunderstanding is at the heart of the rift, as the company's founders, Jonas Nova and Garik Orion, have created their own factions within the organization. Master pilots can earn respect and rewards by allying with a faction and completing its quests.

• More Than 50 New Space-Based Collections
In October, Star Wars Galaxies introduced a collection book interface that allows players to keep track of all they have done in the game. For every collection series completed, players receive high-value items including weapons, armor, home décor, and even skill bonuses. Chapter 8: The Nova Orion Crisis offers an additional 50 new space-based collections that will send players around the galaxy to complete.

• New Spaceships for Players
Four new spaceship schematics will be available for players in Chapter 8, each obtained as a reward for completing a collection. Three of the ships: Rebel Gunboat, Imperial Gunboat and Neutral Gunboat, will be fitted with turrets and will allow a group of up to eight players to board them simultaneously, providing the perfect defense for those dangerous runs through the outer rim. The fourth ship, the Naboo Royal Fighter is a single-player ship, but is the top light fighter starship in the galaxy.
