Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Flash Points

January 31, 2011 BLOG No Comments

Star Wars: The Old Republic recently released some new information about “Flash Points” that we will find in the SWTOR universe. These self contained instances take your character through an adventure that you can complete with your friends.

Aside from using teamwork to get through the challenge, each flash point appears to offer a cool story that you can take part in while you complete your mission. We really love how they are injecting all sorts of cool cut scenes and decision making into these flash points… plus having a story to get into doesn’t hurt either!

SWTOR has released an awesome video of one of the flash points named “Taral V” check out the embedded video after the jump!

Hidden deep within the Maelstrom Nebula, a top-secret Imperial prison holds a Jedi Master who is invaluable to the Republic war effort. To liberate the prisoner, a Republic strike team must assault a heavily defended compound on the Imperial world of Taral V and access an ancient computer that can unlock the secrets to the prison’s location.

Taral V is just one of several unique Flashpoints in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. Every Flashpoint takes a group of Imperial or Republic players through its own self-contained adventure, culminating in one of several outcomes based on player choices. You won’t have to miss out on any of the story, though – Flashpoints exist in specially instanced parts of the galaxy and can be repeated as often as you’d like. Flashpoints feature enemies that require skill and cooperation to defeat, and are much more challenging than single-player missions, but they offer valuable loot and rewards. Gather up your allies and get ready for explosive multiplayer action in Flashpoints!
