Empire Day

Posted by Dana Massey on Jun 14, 2005  | Comments

Empire Day - Star Wars Galaxies -

LucasArts passed along the following news item, as well as a big group of pretty new pictures from Star Wars Galaxies.

With Star Wars Galaxies: The Total Experience selling out at stores all over the country and the second annual Star Wars Galaxies Fan Fest showing that fans’ fervor for the game shows no signs of slowing down, the teams at LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment continue to enhance their immersive online glimpse into their favorite galaxy far, far away. This Tuesday’s update features two particularly exciting additions.

Three new elite creatures have been added for high-level players, each of which drops a signature trophy allowing victorious players to walk away with proof of their heroic accomplishment. On Dathomir, battle the fearsome Bane Backed Spider. Or test your mettle against the new Murra Blanca or Painted Spat on Talus.

Battling new creatures is the perfect way to pass time until one of the galaxy’s greatest holidays arrives – Empire Day! Coinciding with what Earthlings (more specifically, Americans) a long time from now will know as “the 4th of July,” Empire Day celebrates the anniversary of Emperor Palpatine’s formation of the first Galactic Empire. In the days leading to the event, Imperial loyalists have the opportunity to embark upon a series of quests that could possibly culminate in their meeting a certain Dark Lord of the Sith. Meanwhile, the Rebellion has its own plans – and its own scoundrel of a hero behind them. Whichever side players may serve, a great exclusive reward awaits their success.

Thanks for the images and the news!
