Electronic Arts Press Conference, that is traditionally held a day prior to GamesCom’s start, is one of those huge media events that always brings fresh news. There is a live stream available of this event, but as with all the other events so far we will be covering the happening live here on SWTOR Life. We will be updating this post with news as they become available so stay tuned and refresh those browsers. There will be other EA games showcased at the event but SWTOR will have a prominent spot. The conference is only 20 minutes away so stay tuned.

  • Eternity vault is an ancient prison and we are seeing turrets attacking the team and Agent healing the Juggernaut tank
  • I am seeing Rockjaw among the people playing the raid.
  • We are seeing a lot of AoE skills from different classes
  • Turrets are destroyed and after cutscene a huge annihilation droid boss lands and we are seeing a nice boss fight.
  • New Eternity Vault footage trailer being shown
  • That is it for SWTOR. Talking about MAss Effect 3 now. I ust say that footage looked good. The only real reveal is 8-16 people in raids. Whether this will be normal raid size is 8 and heroic raid version is 16 – remains to be seen
