SWTOR Patch 5.10 Jedi Under Siege Coming Dec 11

SWTOR Patch 5.10 Jedi Under Siege will be coming on Dec 11.

The release date was announced on the official twitter.

  • Darth Ji’inx

    In less than two weeks, the Sith classes will have all their companions back. All that will be left is two more companions for each Jedi class.

    From what we know, Kira & Scourge will return together. Kira/Scourge and Zenith returns are supposed to be coming soon. No word on Tharan Cedrax.

    I’m curious how the Khem Val return will be handled for those that kept Zash…

    • Leah

      I cannot remember where I’ve read it, could have been datamine could have been speculation, not sure so don’t quote me on it, but basically you only get Khem back if you sided with him rather then Zash.

      • Lithari

        That is entirely true.

      • Darth Ji’inx

        I never betrayed him. 🙂

      • Shaun Fetters

        That would make sense Leah

    • Jonathan Parker

      I hate to break it to you, but you’ll get one short cutscene and then you’ll hear nothing from them for the rest of time unless Bioware digs them out and shoves them into the story again. I was happy enough to see Elara return in a main story mission, so at least she’s included in the overall story. Some peoples’ favorite companions just got one conversation, and some didn’t even get a fully voiced mission.

      • Darth Ji’inx

        I’m talking about Khem’s return cutscene either having Zash in his body or being unavailable for those that kept Zash.

        As for future companion involvement:
        By limiting some companions to specific classes, they’ve made it so they can’t have any meaningful story impact unless they go back to class stories. Kill options also mean they have to stop relying on certain companions as reoccurring characters moving forward. Honestly, returning to class stories would be the only way I could see them rectifying the situation, but I doubt they have the resources for that, especially these days.

        Silver lining: At least the most recent returns have been fully voiced/animated cutscenes.

        • Jonathan Parker

          I just loved how they actually made so many companions part of the main story, despite the class they originated from. Aric, for instance, having a different line for each character he’s aiming at with his rifle (my favorite one being the Agent, basically “Who the hell are you?”). Once we got past the main KOTET story, those inclusions became less and less important. Like I said, Elara comes back, you get a nice reunion if you’re a Trooper (a better one if she’s your wife), but then she’s gone from the story entirely, like all the others. It’s unfortunate they couldn’t carry the same kind of story over a longer period, get all of the main companions back.

        • Danny Seth

          Well, If you kept Zash, Khem would be vengeful towards you and join the Order of Zildrog, dying in the Nathema Conspiracy flashpoint, life force sucked by Zildrog. So there will only be one returning cutscene.

          If you stayed true to him, like you said, you should meet Zash instead of him. She eventually left his body for a young blonde, similar to her original self, but still wants your body, like we hadn’t have enough body sharing with Valkorion.

          • Darth Ji’inx

            I know, but Zash would theoretically still have Khem’s body if you kept her (first scenario you listed). What I’m wondering is if Khem-Zash will return if you chose Zash.

            • Danny Seth

              No. They mentioned in the livestream Khem Val will only be available if you sided with him during the Sith storyline. In my playthrough I made the mistake of choosing her to see how he reacts and the escape button didn’t stop the cutscene in time… So he eventually manages to regain his body, as we did with Valkorion and can’t forgive you… and now he is dead for me.

              But for you, when 5.10 hits, he’ll be demanding to speak to you in the Odessen cantina.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                Khem-Zash is happy with her dashade body and never wants to see you again?

              • Danny Seth

                Oh, no. She finds a way to transfer her mind to a young woman and dumps Khem’s body. Now Khem is free and eventually searches for you on Odessen. Zash still wants your body because you are one of the most powerful beings in the Galaxy, so why not? 😀

              • Darth Ji’inx

                That’s not how it works. If Zash takes the body, Khem is stuck in the mindtrap. Also, Zash wouldn’t trade such a powerful body for some random blonde.

              • Danny Seth
              • Darth Ji’inx

                That’s the Zash who was trapped in the mindtrap (Khem keeps his body).

    • Noyjitat

      Cedrax, oh you mean my favorite companion to use ‘punish’ on? Since he dumped my jedi for a hologram if we get a kill option I may just kill him.

  • So December 18th then, after the inevitable 1 week push back because of “unforeseen bugs”…

      And then the rest of the month vacation where things break and BWA’s response is, “Sorry! See ya next year!”

        Bioware Austin – You’ll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy

    • abaddonsmummy

      Sad but true.
      Doubt I’ll think about re-subbing until after Christmas after it’s inevitable delay and necessary patches.
      It’s going to be a big update with Ossus and Guild changes so the chances of them getting it right first times are less than Theresa May getting her Brexit proposal through without a hitch. (Sorry for the UK political joke).

    • Tami

      Omg this gif is so perfect. When i saw 11 dec. date, I’ve automatically added another 7-14 days myself to release date xD

  • Cameryn

    HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAH same exact day as the World of Warcraft 8.1 patch everyone who plays the game is waiting for. Brilliant strategy, SWTOR! I’ll pray for you when all you can hear on Ossus are crickets…

    • Jonathan Parker

      Maybe there are people who prefer Old Republic to World of Warcraft? Star Wars over Warcraft? Sci-fi over fantasy? People like me?

    • Shaun Fetters

      You have issues….are you one of those people that no longer plays, but like to make ridiculous sophomoric comments about anything associated with the game?

    • grow up ye all

      I know I am childish to play SWTOR, but I have too much cred to even look at WOW :p

    • Geth

      Congratulations. You must be very proud…
      You seem like a millennial that uses lol after every sentence.
      As much as I dislike SWTOR these days, and its lack of support, some of us prefer sci-fi over fantasy/medieval games. Go enjoy your WoW experience 😐

  • Jonathan Parker

    Cool, I’ll be looking forward to more story, maybe some new area quests, but not much else. As long as this game continues to be consumed with greed through overpriced microtransactions, I’m not dedicating any more time to it.

    • abaddonsmummy

      Sadly there are worse games out there consumed by greed and microtransactions.
      Try Fortnite.
      One map and 100 dances……and your kids want ’em all.

      • Jonathan Parker

        Yeah, charging $15 for every cool set of armor that an NPC wears isn’t great either. This is a trend in games that needs to die, or the gaming industry will never be the same again.

        • Ben Gimson

          It’s the players that enable it. You’ll see people across every gaming community defending these shitty practices to their last breath, and unfortunately for us all they probably won’t be taking that last breath any time soon :/

          • Jonathan Parker

            And I hate those people just as much as I hate the shitty developers and lying corporate asshats that shove microtransactions into every avenue of gaming. It’s always said that the “whales” are what keeps these systems in place, but I don’t think that’s the entirely the case. It’s them, sure, but it’s also the devil’s advocate types who defend it and the developers who rely on them to keep being greedy and crushing their playerbase. Sadly, we can’t do anything about it except not buy them, which is what I do, but since that doesn’t matter either (hence the whales), they have their greedy systems tied up in a nice little invulnerable bow that we can’t do shit about.

            • Ben Gimson

              Yup. Such is life I suppose; something goes mainstream, big companies wade in to ruin it. Happens to everything :'(

          • Geth

            When the game finally dies, the cash cow supporters will (might?) realize that all of their e-clothing will be gone. Nothing gained. Everything lost. Unfortunately, you can’t fix stupid.

            • Drivan

              Just ask the folks who poured tons of cash into WildStar how they are feeling this week…
              At least NCSoft had the decency to be honest about their game.

      • Mark Saunders

        it gets worse. My boss in work was googling Fortnite jumpers. To put on an elf. Like, a stuffed toy elf, ten inches big, for “her kids”. She found them on ebay for min £6. More if you wanted one saying Floss like a boss… Apparently, all of this is a thing, nowadays? I’m sure EA are livid and wish they had a game to come out for xmas that they could make tiny jumpers for elves to sell to parents. so, one map and 100 dances, and jumpers for elves… and your parents want ’em all.

    • Tony

      I appreciate that the game still exists but my love for it is dying..imagine if they killed the game outright and you lose all those characters and companions you grinded for..they should charge a lesser rate to maintain a restriction free subscription because this game is great for someone new but if you already did the missions its terrible then you factor in the way they try to gouge you for armor and things..its ridiculous..I agree with you..i think we forgot the best part of this game and are still wanting that back..if we had it we wouldn’t care about microtransactions..but as usual they will continue to keep calling a half-arsed game a real game..and its not..its not at all

  • Shaun Fetters

    I have alot of fun playing this game and am looking forward to the new planet and story!!

    • Fred Garvin
      • Shaun Fetters

        Oh I forgot…if you don’t enjoy it then no one else should either…how silly of me….
        Thank you so much for straightening out my thought process…and for referring to a 57 year old man with a resume that would put yours to shame as a “child”

        • Fred Garvin

          Act like a child, get called one. Go wave your e-peen resume elsewhere.

          OH WAIT! 57? White Knighting SWTOR? Keith…you sly dog you…

        • He didn’t write any of that what you described.. Just a simple non offensive GIF that happens around Wicked Wide Web at times on these days o/ Wish you nice time in any game you universe you adventure in 🙂

    • Kaelin

      Wrong place to praise that game. If you happened to like something in SWTOR prepare to be trolled

    • Fubarz

      It will be interesting to see the new planet and story. But I like to see how crazy dark Jaesa is now 😀

    • Fubarz

      The new planet and story will be fun to do. But I want to see how crazy Dark Jaesa is now 😀

    • an

      SWTOR story telling have taken a dive in recent years – so I would not get your hopes up.
      It takes place on an orange planet that was destroyed by a supernova.
      If it was destroyed by a supernova there would be nothing left of the planet.

  • Noyjitat

    Looking forward to being reunited with Jaesa / Nadia. I was beginning to think it would never happen

  • Shota King

    Ahhh the prelude to 6.0 begins. Looking forward to Jaesa getting mad i left her for Theron. oh boy thats gonna be interesting….

  • Mad mary

    Any double xp event coming up?

    • Fubarz

      Might see it during the holiday’s

  • Seph

    So December 19th at earliest then, got it.

    • Black Pyros

      Yup, and an additional month before they repair enough bugs to make it somewhat playable.

    • Tami

      I wanted to post the same, that there will be 1-2 weeks delay for sure 😀

  • Nyh

    *SWTOR is doing great, I play it for a year meme material*

  • Mars

    Definitely a good sign when they can’t even post an in-game screen as a teaser.

  • Vergansito

    On the desolate game of SWTOR, a very small, top secret Jedi colony holds
    ancient knowledge. Their survival (struggling numbers) and fate are in your hands in ‘Jedi
    Under Siege’ – coming December 11th but more sure December 25th :will you resub? please? =)

  • Vergansito

    On the desolate game of SWTOR, a very very small, group of developers holds

    • dont_remember_my_old_account

      after a month spend in other games I’m again here, courious whats going on. Honestly I would return after leaving the game 9 month ago.
      But

      a)

      2 of my 8 chars bugged in quest lines that cannot be reset and half a dozend answers from support “this is fucking protokol droid xyz you have to wait for patch ” as if a patch would be developed for those specific issues … just reseting those fucked damned quest lines or just setting them to be completet, but incompetent support cannot do one or the other
      b)
      so much fubar codex entries, some not in game since release (but availabled in beta), others killed by 4.0 (when for the codex you would have to end a heroic by speaking with the quest giver what has been removed from the game, now heroic quests are completet automatically), others brought in the game or bug-resolved but only for new chars (sith warrior person of note on shar shadda) but not retroactively for characters (sith warrior on nar shaddaa) that already finished that quest line
      c) where did the TRUE SWTOR go? becoming a kindergarden game. seeing female troopers with model 1 (the childs model) on hoth wearing leia bikini outfit wielding a assault cannon almost twice the size of the person/model … where is environment restrictions that kill a character instantly when running around on e.g. hoth with a bikini outfit … ridiculous
      d) bugged achivements
      e) codex entries not attainable anymore but still in the codex list
      and the list goes on

    will they fix the blank chat spam tho?

    • Doubt it cause SWTOR’s Eaware crew still after 5 + Years haven’t given normal Mmorpg Chat Features. Also Chat window still keeps detaching & sometimes vanishes. Only way to get it back is to relog as reloading ui doesn’t help. Also still after 5 + Years since launch Active Chat Tab keep resets goes off to Default Tab when go out of major Instance.

      Damn annoying for people who love to use 2-3x that are well filtered a.k.a Cleaned. Y it’s just one click to get back to chosen Active Tab, but doesn’t mean that such Lazy Coding shouldn’t be Fixed 🙂 Wish you nice time in any gaming Universe you adventure in o/

      • Sorry to burst your bubble, but I’m playing since Beta. And yes, I took some breaks from the game, as I ventured into different worlds, but always came back, as there aren’t many alternatives, especially for a (Nightmare) Raider like me.

        I just recently even dabbled into WoW again, having not played since Vanilla. I was pleasantly surprised with the newer content, although I still prefer SW:TOR for various reasons. Absolutely looking forward to Jedi Under Siege (Which looked pretty promising, even on PTS, which I spent some time on) and the upcoming expansion next year.

        That doesn’t mean SW:TOR doesn’t have problems. In fact, there are a lot of them. And I constantly keep arguing about them. Because you can only truly critizice, what you love.

  • KAPPA_PLEASE

    am i the only one that automatically adds a week to the day they say will launch the patch? 😛
