The Fall Roadmap for Star Wars: The Old Republic has been posted to the official site that lays out the first details about what players can expect over the next several months. A new story chapter, Jedi Under Siege, will "kick off with a bang on the ancient Jedi World" and will feature both Republic and Imperial storylines. "We will see the return of several fan-favorite characters as well as the introduction of some exciting new characters," the blog reads.

Other improvements and additions include:

  • enhancements to weapons, armor, pvP, warzones, guild systems, decorations, Galactic Starfighter will continue on an ongoing basis
  • Master Mode Gods from the Machine slated for Game Update 5.10, with its arrival on PTS this month
  • the next Tier of gear will be added (Tier 5) that can only be crafted from schematics
  • substantial improvements to the overall Guild experience

Updates throughout the fall have been details as to an approximate release window and what each one will contain if all goes according to plan. 

As you’ve read over the past few months, particularly on the forums, we really do want to discuss game changes with you. We are listening and take your comments very seriously. For example, the addition of the apartment-style Overlook in the Rishi Stronghold was directly an outcome of your PTS input! We will be communicating many of the improvements planned for this Fall and will have an open dialog about what to expect. Without spoiling the storyline, we plan to make gameplay features and changes available on the PTS, so we can make adjustments prior to the launch of Game Update 5.10.
