LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment announced today that the latest in a series of ongoing updates for Star Wars Galaxies is now available. Titled Chapter 2: The Talus Incident, the update includes new content and enhancements to the game.
The new adventures see the return of CorSec Agent Tarna from Chapter 1: The Corellian Captives. Players must help her unravel a mystery on the planet Talus that involves one of those hunter-or-hunted calamities. A new Profession Expertise System has been added for the Jedi and Bounty Hunters, allowing players to earn and allocate talent points to unlock new skills and attributes and differentiate their swg credits character from others in the same profession.
New Galactic Civil War PvP bases have also been added. Each base has a different objective and completing them will bring rewards. To compliment all this new material, the Human, Zabrak, and Twi?lek species have been given visual updates. Their appearance has been improved to take advantage of new graphics technologies. As new Chapters for Star Wars Galaxies are released, other playable species will receive these visual enhancements.
Star Wars Galaxies subscribers will receive all the content in Chapter 2 via an automatic download when logging into the game. In addition, those who login before Chapter 3 is released will receive an in-game item: a Military Reactive Stim Injector, which is no doubt some sort of military, uh, reaction¡stim¡thing.
