The latest Star Wars Galaxies Chapter is out, titled the Nova Orion Crisis.
On Thursday, January 31, at 4:00 AM PST all U.S. and European galaxies will be taken down for server maintenance and a live update.
When the update is complete, all galaxies will be live but unavailable while we complete final testing. All galaxies will be made available after that time.
