Star Wars: The Old Republic holding bounty hunting event in August

Friday, 5th July 2013 23:48 GMT By Phil Owen

August is going to bring players of Star Wars: The Old Republic Update 2.3, which comes with a new Ewok companion that they can buy, but that’s not all that next month will give you. August will also see the first Bounty Contract Week, which will allow players to take, you know, bounties to hunt down and kill.

According to the news release about this topic, “Targets include members of crime syndicates, violent gangs, and various other law-breaking entities. High-profile targets, designated “Kingpins,” may only be hunted through Kingpin Contracts, which are entrusted to professionals who have a proven track record with the BBA.” Which means, unfortunately, no bounties on other players.

You’ll need to be at least level 15 to take on a bounty, and each target will be level appropriate for you when you take him or her or it on.

And don’t worry if you can’t hit all the targets in that one week; this will be a recurring monthly event, so you’ll have all the time in the world to take down these targets.

    But not other players – just some stupid npc in a generic fetch/chase quest.

    The one thing I loved about Star Wars Galaxies was the fact that Bounty Hunters, if they chose to, could hunt Jedi and it was fucking awesome!

    agree 100%.

    it’s almost as if they don’t want it to succeed. how can you seriously NOT see the potential of implementing player bounty-hunting, especially when it’s a MMO where this should be prioritized over mentioned generic npc-quests.
