Publishes 20 & 21

Publishes 20 & 21 -

Star Wars Galaxies Community Manager Chris Baker sent along a recap of Publish 20 as well as a preview of Publish 21, soon to hit the live SWG servers. Included are several screenshots.

As always, the Star Wars Galaxies experience continues to grow. Recently, the team instituted Publish 20, highlighted by the addition of two new elite enemy creatures and further implemented feedback attained from June’s Star Wars Galaxies Fan Fest in Anaheim. Meanwhile, Publish 21 goes live next week, complete with another installment to the epic Syren Quest story and some welcome new abilities for all pets of creature handlers.

With the debuts of the finned blaggart and the mutant acklay, Publish 20 introduced two new enemy creatures for advanced players. Found on Endor, the finned blaggart slithers its way toward you with one thing on its mind – lunch. Also, the acklays of the Geonosian bio labs on Yavin IV have found their way to the surface – but not without becoming part of a little experimenting themselves! Now more powerful than ever, these mutant acklays are one of the toughest of Yavin IV’s antagonists. And you thought Obi-Wan had his work cut out for him in Episode II’s arena scene!

In addition to new enemies, more Fan Fest feedback was also implemented into the game (on top of the nearly 40 found in Publish 19!). Special attention was paid to entertainers, who were granted a new kung-fu-style dance called the Bundunki, a new song and more. A few other examples: Dying in space no longer adds wounds, you can now group your droids in space, and group members no longer add to a Jedi’s visibility.

Coming this Tuesday, Publish 21 continues the Syren Quest story arc with part 4 of the epic adventure. This installment takes you to the Martano Estate on Rori, where Tierce Martano himself is being held captive in his own home. Can you rescue him?

Other quests will be included, as well. Likewise, older ones will be revisited with welcome updates.

Creature handlers also have a reason to be happy. When Publish 21 hits, they’ll have the chance to train their pets with new abilities, such as boosts to power, melee attacks and defense. Better yet, you can transfer their abilities to other pets as well.
