Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic Dev Tracker







Every year that passes, I am amazed by the work that has gone into Star Wars: The Old Republic. Today, we have hit our 11 year anniversary, and I have been reflecting on everything that transpired throughout the year. The updates, team changes, meetings, challenges, forums, live streams, and more come to mind.

At the beginning of 2022, we launched our 8th expansion. We took the time needed to overcome unforeseen obstacles, polish and test the content to ensure it will be enjoyable for players. There was a lot of effort, love, and care that went into “Legacy of the Sith” and just as much going into the most recent and future updates.

A lot of changes happened this year, and many times the unknown can be intimidating and scary, but the SWTOR team was able to adapt and truly strive forward with meaning and purpose. We...

You read that correctly, the Public Test Server is now open for players to experience Star Wars: The Old Republic in 64-bit! This is yet another of our modernization initiatives that we are bringing to the game.



Why make the move to 64-bit?

Star Wars: The Old Republic was initially released in 32-bit on the game client in order to run on the widest variety of PCs available at the time. A decade later, 32-bit PCs are much less common. The last 32-bit PC processor was released in 2010.

The first advantage of moving to 64-bit code is memory. With 64-bits players can use more memory and aren't limited to 4 GB per process. This limit applies to the game client itself, and restricts things like how much content we can be placed in each area.

That ties into the limits that our tools have because they’re based o...

Hi everyone, 

I'm creating this space to house dev updates regarding the PTS. I am hoping this is easier for all of you to find info about this initiative. To start, please always follow these steps if you experience a crash: 

  • System specs - processor, video card, OS version
  • What were you doing before the crash happened?
  • Please provide a DxDiag report and send it to [email protected] with the subject line 64-Bit PTS Testing

As there are thousands of permutations of processor, memory, graphics card, etc…we're especially on the hunt for issues that show up with specific configurations. Please play as you normally would, and if there is anything strange happening, let us know about it! 

Currently, we have received reports of client start up crashes. Please note that if you are one of the players this has happened to, it...

Hey SWTOR community!

 

We’re into the development stages of Galactic Season 4 now, so it’s a great time to gather your feedback! We want to hear your thoughts on Galactic Seasons and how they can be improved in the future.

Map feedback?

The rotation could be improved. Huttball is not fun to me, and while I do enjoy Pylons, we get them way too often. I would love to see more Odessen in the rotation. It's my favorite WZ map.

Hey NicoleMay, 

Not in general for this specific thread. I just don't want players to forget about Shabir's initial ask "We would like your feedback on which maps do you feel are the toughest to reach 8 medals on and why". 

Thanks!

Hi everyone, 

 

We wanted to follow up on the discussion regarding PvP Medals, and we’re looking into feedback in relation to  their difficulty of being obtained. We would like your feedback on which maps do you feel are the toughest to reach 8 medals on and why. We would really like feedback on both Warzones and Arenas. Thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts.
