BioWare published the schedule for the SWTOR Events to take place during the month of September 2020. The biggest surprise is the full month of Double XP starting in the middle of the month! Rakghouls outbreak on Alderaan and Swoop Rally are the other events coming up in September!
Rakghoul Resurgence on Alderaan
Date: September 8 – September 15, 2020 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 11:00AM PDT/6:00PM UTC)
Requirement: Levels 25+
The tunnels beneath the surface of Alderaan are once again roaring with Rakghouls. It’s time to farm some reputation, kill a big-bottom monster and complete the last (or first!) achievements you have left.
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 Alderaan. 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!

Double XP Event
Date: September 15 – October 13, 2020 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 11:00AM PDT/6:00PM UTC)
Starting September 15th and lasting until October 13th there will be a Double XP event! Enjoy multiple weeks of Double XP, Valor, Renown, and more.
The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally
Date: September 22 – September 29, 2020 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 11:00AM PDT/6:00PM UTC)
Requirement: Levels 20+
The Swoop Rally event is still relatively new and with level 20 requirement it means that all new Steam players would get a chance to experience it. If you haven’t tried it yet, I seriously urge you to do so.
This is a nice reference and a throwback to the Swoop racing featured in Knights of the Old Republic game from some seventeen years ago.
The speed of your swoop bike here in SWTOR is rather limited, thanks to the game’s old and problematic engine, but this cannot ruin the fun of participating.
And the more reputation you gain with the swoop bike factions, the more of their personal story you will learn through unlocking new missions.
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.
