And shockingly, coming as a surprise to no one, Guild Wars 2 is also releasing an update on June 23rd, must be a trend. Jehdai will be giving us more info on that in just a few minutes!
Announcing Knight of the Fallen Empire expansion (note, not on June 23rd, it’s October 27th, someone didn’t get the memo).
This expansion also raises the Level cap to 65, and includes the option to create a Level 60 character! This allows you to start fresh in Knights of the Fallen Empire and jump right into the new story content. They are delivering this story content in a way never before done in Star Wars: The Old Republic: Chapters. The first nine Chapters will be available at launch on October 27th, with new Chapters delivered regularly following that.
With the launch of Knights of the Fallen Empire, all of the original eight Class stories will be enhanced, allowing for a faster and more engaging playthrough for new and veteran players. Additionally, many of our existing Flashpoints and Operations are being scaled to 60+, giving you many more Elder Game options at Level 65.
