Tatooine, Mos Eisley – May 3, 2021 – After months of testing our open beta, the Restoration 3 team is ready to welcome you and all other fans back to once again experience the best Star Wars story ever told, yours.
On May 28, whether you plan on grouping up to take on the massive Krayt dragons of Tatooine, setting up a crafting empire on the rolling orange hills of Corellia, or plunging yourself deep into the Galactic Civil War – we are proud to present that Star Wars Galaxies is back, with all the greatest elements from each era of the game present and ready for you to explore.
A Unique Star Wars MMO Experience
Restoration 3 will provide players the ability to progress the server to additional content. Launching with Jump to Lightspeed and Kashyyk implemented, groups and guilds will work together to beat certain bosses and move server progression forward. Once this is done, other well known areas will become available one by one, such as Mustafar and Heroic instances like Hoth.
R3 will also feature the addition of custom content and systems as time goes by. We endeavour to keep things fresh for players, so that their Star Wars home is one they can keep coming back to year after year.
Lastly the careful inclusion of Jedi as a difficult to unlock and mysterious class, credit sinks and systems designed to disincentivize AFK play, the removal of economy damaging systems like instant travel vehicles, and an initial cap of two character slots per player, means you and others will have to depend on each other to fulfill different roles within Star Wars Galaxies society as the game was first designed to do.
Server Events & Launch Weekend
To celebrate our open Beta’s close, we will have server events from the 24th to 27th. This will be an opportunity to meet friends, test out templates, and have some fun.
Our Discord will also feature the first Galactic Find A Friend System, this will be a great way for users to join chat rooms filtered by old Star Wars Galaxies servers in an attempt to reconnect with lost friends, and make new acquaintances.
Lastly all users will receive a special gift for creating a character during the launch weekend. A custom R3 Golden Cybernetic plaque to decorate your house and commemorate the server’s launch, and an in-game shirt that will give your characters a small XP boost.
Naboo, Theed – April 16, 2021 – Fan favourite Star Wars Galaxies has been painstakingly remade on the base of the Combat Upgrade system initially released into the game by Sony Online Entertainment a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. The Restoration 3 team has taken the best of each iteration of SWG, maintaining the advances that new patches made to the game while keeping the freedom of an open, pre-NGE skill system intact.
With an exciting roadmap & custom content planned, the Restoration 3 team will be releasing the expansions Jump to Lightspeed and Kashyyk at launch, with Mustafar, and other Heroic instances added once secret server-side prerequisites are met by players. This will allow adventurers to experience Star Wars Galaxies incrementally as first designed.
Trust no one with Restoration’s enhanced secret unlock Jedi system, adding once again a sense of wonder to unlocking this force sensitive class and keeping it rare, valuable, and unique. With great power comes great responsibility however, and Jedi must remain vigilant less they are brought down by player Bounty Hunters and made to surrender their lightsaber.
Stress Testers Needed April 17, 2021 – 1pm ET
With the launch of Restoration 3’s Star Wars Galaxies server imminent, stress testers are required to bash and break like a Bantha in a spice shop. We invite everyone to come online for a fun event, meet fellow players, battle NPCs, and throw as many actions down as possible.
Once this test has been completed, Restoration will reach out with additional information relating to our planned launch date. For now the exact date is a tease, but we can tell you that it’s imminent, and that any fan could take a guess at some upcoming force-sensitive dates and come up with a close answer..
