Star Wars The Old Republic: Terror From Beyond update detailed, will be difficult
Star Wars: The Old Republic’s latest 1.4 update will unlock a new tier of operations, as well as the challenging Terror from Beyond operation that promises to give players a run for their money
BioWare’s Terror from Beyond operation has been detailed over at the official Star Wars: The Old Republic blog. Here’s an official synopsis:
“Terror from Beyond is a new Operation that takes us to Asation, a remote planet in the Gree Enclave. Asation is a swampy, wetland world that was terraformed by the Gree thousands of years ago. It is not a Gree homeworld, but it does house some incredible technology assembled long ago by the Gree crafter caste.”
“Key among this technology is the Hypergate, a massive device capable of transmitting matter from across the galaxy. The Dread Masters have sown chaos on Asation by activating the Hypergate, letting through untold horrors and monstrosities. It’s up to players to cut a path through these creatures, defeat the agents of the Dread Masters, and deactivate the Hypergate at any cost.”
The operation will also include five major new boss encounters, including an end boss of “unprecedented scale” for the game. BioWare also teased the return of an enemy from the core game, stating that he won’t be happy to see you.
