Star Wars: The Old Republic Expansion News

The Old Republic LogoStar Wars The Old Republic (or SW:TOR to those who like such accronyms) went free to play (with an option to subscribe for some bonuses) in November. As of Spring next year, players will be able to take their characters through five more character levels worth of story driven content.

Click below for further information.

The Official FAQ informs that:

Rise of the Hutt Cartel, the first Digital Expansion for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, introduces 5 new levels, including story-driven missions, as the Level Cap increases to 55! Face off against a frightening new enemy on the brand new planet of Makeb as you battle the nefarious Hutt Cartel and its massive new creatures and weapons of destruction. The Hutt Cartel has emerged from the shadows to challenge the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire for control, unleashing never-before-seen Droids and monstrous battle stations to serve as powerful weapons of destruction. As a player, you will be forced to take a side as you earn new weapons, armor, abilities and more.

I’m quite fond of The Old Republic and it’s heavily story based character-progression,though I admit I’ve not played for a while and my Republic Trooper is nowhere near even the old level cap of 50. Bioware also promises for more additions later in 2013.

To my mind, more story and character options is no bad thing, and I hope the game manages to continue long into the future.

The expansion costs $19.99 for non-subscribers and $9.99 for those who are subscribed to the game on a regular basis.
