During the Esseles Flashpoint, an early-on event, players defend a covert Republic transport from the Imperials. The Imperial early game Flashpoint, The Black Talon, requires players to deal with a captain ignoring his orders of attack. During Taral V, which players encounter mid-game, an important Jedi needs rescue. The Empire's mid-game Flashpoint uses a similar theme, only instead of trying to free a prisoner, players need to recapture an escaped one. Both Republic and Imperial players work to stop a droid-led revolution during Directive 7. DevTracker post continues after the jump. Our media gallery with screenshots from the Flashpoint Update is below. Our dissection of the Taral V trailer is also available in the prior post.
Quote from Stephen Reid
Some missions are too dangerous for just one hero. In Flashpoints, players team up with others to confront monumental challenges at pivotal moments in the game story. Fight deadly foes, make decisions that determine the outcome of the story, and get some of the best rewards in the galaxy as you and your allies experience Flashpoints.
