Warning!! This video has Spoilers in it!!
If you missed the big news in game there is a Rakghoul Infestation on Tatooine!! Not only are there broadcasts going out while at the Fleet, but there is also a news station where you can watch the broadcast warning you stay away. So naturally I headed straight there!
The new event at first glance is very cool. You get infected which can temporarily disable you for a few seconds and containment droids can call in troops to attack you so you don’t spread the disease. But as things progress you realize there isn’t that much more to look forward to.
At least from what I’ve seen so far (I could have missed something this early in). There was only 2 cut scenes, of which you only take part in one of them yourself. Also, the story aspect of the event is pretty weak. There’s Rakghouls, go stop them. An over simplification maybe, but that’s all I felt like I did.
Also, the PvP aspect of the event is literally Ilum 2.0. When I walked up to the vendor I saw about 20-30 Republic and Empire players clustered together and for the life of me couldn’t figure out why. Then it was explained to me that they were trading kills for extra DNA Samples. /sigh
But don’t let all of that turn you off of the event. While it has its downsides, it was still a blast to do. And the rewards, depending on your predilections, are very worth it! Check out the video for more information and I will be covering other things about this event in the upcoming days!
