Jesse Sky, SWTOR Lead Operations and Flashpoint Designer, gave us a shiny, new Developer’s Blog update yesterday with some interesting information and hints about Terror from Beyond, the new Operation heading our way in Game Update 1.4. Here’s a snippet:
Terror from Beyond offers five new major boss encounters that will challenge even the most highly-coordinated groups of players. In keeping with previous Operations, Terror from Beyond includes one “puzzle” encounter that really steps outside of the bounds of what you normally see in a boss fight. To defeat this new enemy, players will need to work together to repair a massive, ancient Gree computer from within the machine itself. Unlike previous puzzle encounters where the solutions were relatively easy to figure out, this one has players leveraging their particular group composition to control a chaotic situation. It’s very different from the things that we’ve done in the past, and I’m excited to see what players think.
In addition to strange creatures and agents of the Dread Masters, players will run into a familiar face on Asation. No spoilers, but here’s a hint: he’s not going to be very happy to see you.
It’s nice to know we have another Operation puzzle to look forward to, and one that sounds a little complicated. Now all we need is some type of date on 1.4, or at least an announcement regarding its appearance on the Public Test Server.
