Earlier today, BioWare released a Sneak Peek Video of the upcoming "Relics of the Gree" event, going live alongside Patch 1.7 tomorrow. For the video, as well as our analysis and opinion, hit the jump.
Launching tomorrow, February the 12th, Game Update 1.7 "Relics of the Gree" will see the return of open-world PvP on Ilum. Many players are excited to see the return of something on such a grand scale, and there also appears to be something lurking deep within the bowels of the Grey Secant. Let's take a look.
For those of us that were around during the Rakghoul event, the newscasters are familiar characters. Assuring us that there is no cause for alarm for these unfounded rumors, they're obviously doing their best in the damage control department.
A Mysterious Vessel
This is one of the first images we're greeted with. It appears to be the ship itself, though I suppose it's possible that it's something else. Either way, it is very imposing and large, and looks to be the central area of the conflict. Is this the Grey Secant? Here is a more clear image:
For such a large and imposing ship, it must have one heck of a cargo...
This certainly looks like the interior of a cave, perhaps where the ship crash lands. Familiar cube-shaped architecture can be seen in the background, so perhaps it's temporary while they get this big guy under control. The glowing highlights on the robotic armor seem to be a new effect we're being introduced to, as it can be seen in the armor, presented to us here:
More Than One Boss?
It would appear that perhaps we're looking at multiple encounters within the vessel, as we can see the following during the trailer:
That appears to be larger than most standard enemies, so it would lead me to believe it's a possible boss encounter. Also, there's this monster:
Both pictures show player characters in direct combat with both entities, so I assume we'll be facing the both of them at least, if not more. At any rate, we'll all know tomorrow when the patch drops and the update is upon us. Check back here for more information as it becomes available, and have fun!
