BioWare today announced plans to release Rise of the Hutt Cartel, its first digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic. It is scheduled for release in Spring 2013.
Starting today, subscribers of The Old Republic can pre-order the expansion for $9.99, 50% off regular price. Free-to-play players can also pre-order, but they’ll have to pay the full $19.99 (understandably). Players who pre-orders before January 7, 2013 will receive five days of early access to the new fully-voiced story-driven content.
“We know our fans want to keep experiencing the classic Star Wars storylines they love, and that’s what we’re delivering with the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion,” said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer at BioWare Austin. “The planet Makeb is shaping up to be one of our most breathtakingly beautiful settings and the clash with the Hutt Cartel is epic and exciting.”
Rise of the Hutt Cartel will take players to Makeb, a dual-faction planet where players will continue battling with the merciless Hutt Cartel. We can expect to meet new new characters and weapons, though there is no details as to what weapons that would be. Rise of the Hutt Cartel will include five new story-driven levels and the level cap will be raised to 55.
