Some Corrections For The Los Angeles Cantina Flash Drives | 06.19.2013, 10:27 PM
This week I learned about some incorrect information that went out on our flash drives which we gave away during the LA Cantina Tour. I wanted to highlight what was incorrect and to provide the correct information, including some updated screenshots with the correct rewards!
The first thing which led to some confusion is that the new event coming around Game Update 2.3 is called Bounty Contract Week, not the Bounty Hunter event. We didn’t mean to have the added confusion around implying an event was named after a class. Bruce gave a little bit of information on the event, here.
Even though it’s part of Game Update 2.3 we are planning to start the Bounty Contract Week on August 13th. Bounty Contract Week is a monthly event, so if you miss it the first time, don’t worry – it will return next month! The event above was actually teased in our Community Meet & Greet last week and we’ll be sharing more details soon. Here is a snippet for now:
Bounty Contract Week provides new missions with full voice-over that will take you on a hunt for high-value bounty targets across the galaxy. Each bounty contract scales to your level, from 15 to 55, providing experience, credits, Commendations, and Reputation with the Bounty Brokers Association.
Now, onto the screenshots! First was some incorrect armor screenshots. There were two new armor sets shown. One of them is not actually present in the game in that color variation which you can see here.
The other, is in the game in 2.3, but it is a part of the new daily hub reputation not the Bounty Contract Week rep. You can see that armor here.
As a note, this armor has changed slightly. The colors are a bit more vibrant and it has some new "attachments," I am going to work on getting an updated screenshot.
What you will want to see are the new armor sets that are rewards for the Bounty Contract Week Rep! Here they are, reward 1 and reward 2.
We sincerely apologize for any confusion.
The first thing to note is the New Hangar Decorations featured in the upcoming Bounty Hunter event in patch 2.3.
Here are some pictures of the Imperial Hangar that servers as the base for the Bounty Hunter missions.
New armor & weapon rewards
New armor you can purchase as a reward when you are successful in your bounty missions and earn required reputation.
New weapon you can purchase as a reward when you are successful in your bounty missions and earned required reputation
New Item & Boss
New mission item you can deploy as part of the event – The Interrogation Probe, to pry information from a shady character.
New Tatooine Bounty Hunter mission boss that you will kill or capture.
This appear to be another boss on Hutta.
More details to come..
Some bounty hunter screens
Here are some screenshots of bounty hunter avatars, likely to show the new graphical improvements in patch 2.3.
