According to the SWTOR Fall Roadmap 2018 and the most recent Developer Livestream, players can expect a return to the traditional Republic vs. Empire storyline and will emphasize the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith. Specifically, the story of GU 5.10 is anticipated to take place on the ancient Jedi world of Ossus. The planet is described as having a large explorable area, a Daily Area, and separate faction storylines (probably in a similar way to how the Makeb story was presented). According to the Roadmap, several old NPC characters will return to the story, as well as some new characters. Republic players will be guided along in the story by a powerful Jedi veteran who will join Republic players on their mission to protect a hidden Jedi base. Imperial players will be accompanied by an Imperial commando who will aid them in their mission to destroy the base.
The return to traditional Pub vs. Imp storytelling promises to revitalize certain niche areas of RP, including Imperial military RP.
For those Imperial military RPers interested in the upcoming story:
Will your characters be participating in Imperial military operations on Ossus?
What does your character hope to achieve on Ossus?
Will your character just be popping in to join the initial fight or do you expect to keep them stationed there for some time?
Let me know how you expect the upcoming Game Update will impact your characters (if it impacts them at all).
Expect to see personnel of the <Imperial Ministry of War> present on the Jedi world!
