BioWare has revealed the schedule for in-game events in SWTOR for the month of August 2022. Nightlife is returning to Nar Shaddaa! Swoopracing will be back in style and rakghouls will once again plague the surface of Tatooine.

Nar Shaddaa Nightlife returns

The seasonal casino gambling event called Nar Shaddaa Nightlife, which also serves as an excellent credit sink, will return for six weeks this summer. SWTOR players will be able to play on the slots once again for a chance to win rare items.

This season Nightlife receives a few new items (weapons and a mount among other things) some of which will be very hard (and expensive) to obtain.

Expect the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife 2022 guide shortly after the 7.1 patch goes live on August 2nd.

The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally

Swoopracing has been a passion for almost every Star Wars fan and a favorite side-mini-game for all KOTOR players for many years now. When BioWare added the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally event to SWTOR, we all got overly excited (well, I did).

The implementation of that event was not up to the hype because of the much-lower than expected speeds the swoop bikes can reach in the game, due to technical limitations.

This event brings a mini story of its own and if you are patient and willing to grind some reputation on the tracks of Onderon, Tatooine and Dantooine, you will discover some interesting secrets about the main participating swoop gangs.

If you are new to this event, consult with the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally Guide to learn how to get started and what you can do on the tracks and around them.

Swoop Bike

Date: August 9th – August 16th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 20+

In the growing shadow of war, swoop fans across the galaxy descend on Dantooine, Tatooine, and even Onderon for the sport’s biggest spectacle—The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally! They’re packing the stands, eager to take their minds off their troubles and cheer their favorite swoop gangs. The bikers are here to take on dangerous challenge courses, show off their piloting skills, and flaunt their souped-up swoop bikes. The thunder of the engines, the deafening applause from the fans, the wind battering their helmets… there’s no bigger rush for these thrill seekers.

Despite their reputation as wild rebels whose makeshift courses disregard local districting restrictions, swoop gangs aren’t a serious threat to anyone–something all true swoop fans know! They just love adrenaline-pounding speed, sweet jumps, and big explosions, and the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally combines all three in one crowd-pleasing package. The biggest gangs on the circuit — Horizon’s Razor, the Pit Screamers, and the Blatant Beks — are ready to show their fans a great time.


  • Swoop Rally Mounts (regular and gold versions)
  • Swoop Gang Outfits
  • Promotion Droid Mini-pets
  • Various Stronghold Decorations

Rakghoul Resurgence on Tatooine

The Rakghouls have been tormenting the inhabitants of Tatooine for so man years now. There’s nothing left that T.H.O.R.N have not tried yet. All you can do is help them fight back the monsters when they surface up. And they tend to do it almost every month, on a different planet.

SWTOR Rakghoul Resurgence Event on Tatooine

Date: August 23rd – August 30th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 25+

The Hyland Organization for Rakghoul Neutralization (T.H.O.R.N.) has issued an official level-2 emergency alert concerning an outbreak of the Rakghoul plague on Tatooine. Quarantines have been put in place to restrict traffic of the plague off-world, but exceptions will be made for individuals with priority clearance.

T.H.O.R.N. is recruiting qualified volunteer emergency responders to travel to affected areas to combat the spread of the Rakghoul plague. More information about the outbreak can be found by checking the News Terminals on the Republic or Imperial Fleet!

T.H.O.R.N. wishes to remind you that plague symptoms can be treated if they are identified in the early stages of infection. Whether or not you have travel plans, please consult your nearest trusted medical supply droid and get vaccinated!

Ten Year Anniversary

Oh, well. This again. BioWare insists on repeating this segment on every single one of its monthly event announcements. I have said in my previous posts numerous times that this isn’t an event and I think it should not be here.

Why isn’t it an event on its own? Because all there is to it is a vendor on the fleet and its contents don’t even get updated much.

Date: December 14th, 2021 – January, 2023 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Levels 10+

We are happy to celebrate out 10th anniversary on December 20th! With this being a huge milestone, we are going to celebrate the anniversary all year long! To mark this occasion, a special “Anniversary Personnel” vendor can be found on the fleet with new Class Ship Stronghold Decorations. All previous anniversary rewards will also be available during this limited time as well.


  • Faction-based fireworks
  • Commemorative Statues of HK-51, Valkorian, and Malgus
  • Senya Holo-statue
  • Fireworks Celebratory Backpack
  • Several Stronghold Decoration posters
  • Class Ship Stronghold Decorations
  • … and more!

If you are actually hungry for new content, like I am, the next major update to SWTOR, Patch 7.1, is right around the corner. We are finally getting the Manaan Daily Area (full guide coming soon), new Operation, some class balance for several disciplines, the continuation of the Malgus storyline, UI updates and endgame gearing changes among other things.

If you have missed something, catch up with the in-depth SWTOR 7.1 coverage by checking out all of the articles under this tag.
