SWTOR Patch Notes for Game Update 4.7 that will arrive on Tuesday after maintenance (5 – 9 am PST).
Current game version does not match the server’s. | 08.08.2016, 02:54 PM
We have figured out what the issue is and we have a few options on how to proceed. What we are going to do is we are going to move tomorrow’s maintenance up to right now, meaning there will no longer be a maintenance tomorrow morning. Within the next 15-30 minutes we will be bringing all servers down as we deploy Game Update 4.7 and Chapter 16.
This means that as the servers come back up 4.7 will be live and you will have access to Chapter 16 Early Access if you qualified. We do apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but with this solution you will be getting Chapter 16 and GU 4.7 even sooner than planned.
This means that starting soon SWTOR servers will be unavailable for approximately 4 hours (hopefully less). We will be keeping SWTOR.com available during this period.
Thank you for your understanding.
