So, a new development blog is out! And about the new operation no less 🙂
Interesting Points and Speculation:
-Clearer picture of final boss and players on platforms. Curious how this will work. Feeling bad for Melee players though.
-Asation is the planet we shall be going to :3
-I’m guessing the Puzzle is where you see players in various colors. Just seen too many things where people go into some kind of computer matrix thing and are a single color 😛
-I’m guessing one of the bosses (or maybe a mini-boss) is a boss from a previous instance due to the “In addition to strange creatures and agents of the Dread Masters, players will run into a familiar face on Asation. No spoilers, but here’s a hint: he’s not going to be very happy to see you.” Would go with Kephess as he appears in the ending cutscene after EC. My only other idea with be Malgus (no real proof over if he died or not), but I do not see him working with the Dread Masters, honestly, so I’ll just stick with Kephess as it makes the most sense considering plot line and all 😛
-Gauntlet-Style on the final Boss. Not sure if it means you’ll have to run while being attacked until you are in position to fight or if you will be fighting mobs up until you get to where you fight the boss. Either way, should be interesting.
-Based a lot on execution of Mechanics.
-New set of PVE Gear
-“The hard difficulty mode for Terror From Beyond is balanced for players wearing a full set of Campaign gear, which can be acquired from Operation: Explosive Conflict. Augments will become increasingly more important the deeper you get into Terror from Beyond.” Hopefully the fact that I lack the hilt still won’t make a big deal 🙁 …on the otherhand, I doubt I’ll get to do it much anyway ._.
Looking forward to maybe trying it with some people on the Test Server at least. I just hope they’ll let people download the Test Server a bit beforehand. My computer has it, but I have been playing on my Laptop more recently (as my computer needs new parts) and sadly, the Test Server went down before I got the chance to download it on here too 🙁 But yeah, would like to download ahead of time so I can patch it and get on ASAP.
Edit: Story Mode confirmed to drop Rakata stuff. Kind of reminds me of how different Normal and HM Lost Island are.
