BioWare has revealed the schedule for in-game events in SWTOR for the month of September 2022! This month includes Bounty Contract Week, Swoop Rally, and possibly Feast of Prosperity.

Bounty Contract Week

It still amazes me to see so many fully-voiced cutscenes in Bounty Contract Week compared to more modern content where the black bars and blue conversation options would definitely be used instead.

That said, BioWare’s resources are limited and it’s definitely excessive to fully voice something people are mostly just gonna spacebar through. At the same time, if BioWare were to bring the other events up to this caliber, maybe it wouldn’t be so jarring.

SWTOR Bounty Contract Week

Date: October 4th – October 11th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 15+

For a limited time, the Bounty Brokers Association has opened its doors to anyone willing to take on their dangerous contracts, offering an opportunity for both seasoned and rookie hunters to prove their skills and bring crime syndicates and violent gangs to justice!

Each day, you can sign up for one standard Henchman contract and one high profile Kingpin Contract, and each may take you to a separate planet. Complete five standard contracts to unlock Kingpin missions with bigger loot! Head to the fleet now, invite your friends and visit representatives of the Association to get started on your contracts!

FEATURED REWARDS:

  • Reputation with the Bounty Brokers Association
  • Bounty Tracker’s Armor Set and Contract Hunter’s Armor Set
  • Assassin’s Bowcaster and Elite Tracker’s Bowcaster weapons
  • Lobelot, Swamp Kell Drake, and Drink Server Probe Mini-pets
  • BH-7X Custom Hunter Mount
  • … and more!

The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally

I wonder if BioWare will ever choose to expand the scope of this event. It seems like it would be so easy to do by adding new planets or another team with its own storyline.

I wouldn’t get hopes up too high for something like this. BioWare has never expanded an existing event like this before besides technically the Rakghoul event, but that was the first event in the game.

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: October 18th – October 25th, 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.

FEATURED REWARDS:

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

Ten Year Anniversary

BioWare hasn’t mentioned that there will be any new items available for purchase this month from the Anniversary Personnel vendor. I’d expect something new with either 7.1.1 or 7.2. If not then, we’ll definitely get something with the 11th Anniversary.

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

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.

FEATURED REWARDS:

  • 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!

Feast of Prosperity (maybe)

We know that the annual Feast of Prosperity event will be returning with 7.1.1, but it seems that BioWare isn’t ready to confirm whether the update will even be arriving this month since it wasn’t included in their event post. Jackie reiterated on the forums that BioWare is still targeting a Fall 2022 release for 7.1.1.

It’s really unfortunate that the pace of updates has been so slow this year. I would have expected 7.1.1 a lot sooner considering that it’s really only bringing changes and fixes, not new content (unless you count GS3 as new content). I’m concerned that this might push 7.2 into 2023. You can check out everything we know about what’s coming with 7.1.1 here.
