BioWare brings back the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally event as well as the classic Rakghoul Resurgence on Corellia in April 2021
The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally Event
Swoop racing was added as a side-game to SWTOR with the 6.1.2 update last June. This happened in the form of a recurring monthly event. It doesn’t feature lightning fast speeders, like in the classic game KOTOR, but it successfully creates a lot of gameplay distractions for bored players, who need a bit of a casual fun time on the tracks.
This month the Swoop Rally event will be live on Dantooine, Tatooine and Onderon from April 6th until April 13th. It will start and end at 12:00 PM GMT. To participate in this event, you will need a character level of 20 or higher.
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.

Rakghoul Resurgence on Corellia
Tell me something – when was the last time you ran through Kaon? Do you even remember the Kaon Under Siege narrative? Well, that’s where the zombies in Star Wars originate from… according to SWTOR, of course :)))
The Rakghoul Resurgence event comes online for a week almost every month and offers you a chance to go deep underground and explore the dark tunnels for hidden treasures and ugly monsters.
This month the rakghouls will surface on Corellia and it is your job, with the help from T.H.O.R.N to make them go away. The Rakghoul Resurgence will be live from April 20th until April 27th. It will start and end at 12:00 PM GMT.
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 Corellia. Quarantines have been put in place to restrict traffic of the plague off-world, but exceptions will be made for individuals with priority clearance.
To start the event, check out one of the news terminals on the Republic or Empire Fleets while the event is live. Your character must be level 25 or higher to be able to participate.
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!

That’s the schedule for both upcoming SWTOR Events in April 2021. The month in SWTOR will be exciting for all of us for two more reasons. At the moment BioWare is in phase two of testing the next SWTOR 6.3 Update on the Public Test Server. PTS is now available on Steam as well.
Some time in the second half of the month we are expecting 6.3 to launch and it will offer a new Flashpoint on Dantooine, featuring Malgus and a new Galactic Seasons offering unique and special rewards for “just playing the game”.
