Ancient Hypergates Gameplay

Are you excited about the new SWTOR Warzone, Ancient Hypergates? I was definitely interested in knowing more about this warzone, the objectives and what it would be like. I really enjoy PVP in SWTOR but doing the same warzones over and over can get boring. A new warzone will be a nice refreshing addition to the game.

Anyway, some of the folks in Cologne, Germany at Gamescom were able to visit the SWTOR booth and get a good look at Ancient Hypergates for themselves. Here’s some info on it complete with a gameplay video so you can see for yourselves:

  • The objective of the warzone is to activate the two pylons which then start a countdown before they explode.
  • To save yourself from the explosion all players must go to the middle room where they fight it out until the explosion is over.
  • All the while each kill brings you closer to activating a special end event that will defeat the losing team for good.

“We are showing footage of the new, not yet released warzone in Star Wars: The Old Republic, called Ancient Hypergates. This was shot at SWTOR booth during Gamescom 2012. The warzone is missing the ending effect.”
