The twenty-fifth issue of Threat of Peace begins in the heat of the fight between the Jedi and the Sith in Dantooine's crystal caves. Lord Baras confronts Satele Shan with the fact that her Master was responsible for the attacks that threatened the peace process. When Satele hesitates, Lord Baras tries to urge her towards the dark side, even as Master Dar'Nala screams at Satele to strike the Sith Lord down.

Late last night, Sean Dahlberg made a post on the Star Wars: The Old Republic official forums regarding today's Friday Update. In addition to covering the actual update, Threat of Peace 25, he also briefly discussed how BioWare will be approaching the release of information over the coming weeks.
It's only a few hours till tomorrow's update but I wanted to go ahead and post this now. Tomorrow's update will be Threat of Peace #25. We realize some may be a little dismayed by this, especially after all of the updates we were having towards the end of 2009.
While we have announced our target launch window, we also realize there is a lot of information to release between now and then. We met with the development team soon after returning from the holiday break and discussed some of the information we want to release. In going over that, we decided to wait on a few things to ensure we are giving the community the most accurate information possible. We understand that pretty much everyone would love to have all the information about The Old Republic now but we wouldn't be serving the community properly if we told you all about a particular feature or mechanic only for it to be completely different than the way we explained it when The Old Republic releases.
We definitely have some new reveals and announcements coming up but I wanted to inform everyone that our next couple of updates won't be those. And while I'd like nothing better than to tell you what is on the horizon, I can't for the very same reason as I talked about above. We have a plan on what information we want to release and when we want to release it but we always make sure the rest of the team is confident with the information we are releasing before we put it out there.
We know that some of you come here weekly and some even daily no matter what information we release because you enjoy interacting with the community. But we also know that some come here for new information and we want to make sure you get that when it is made available. Here are our suggestions on making sure you know what's going on with The Old Republic if you don't wish to check the forums.
In addition to the Threat of Peace update, we recently posted a new speculation article that might help scratch that Star Wars: The Old Republic info-itch. Even with BioWare carefully waiting to make new announcements, there is so much information hidden in the official site that we will have plenty to talk about in the interim. Be sure to check back often as we get rolling in 2010
