Star Wars: The Old Republic Expansion Released

A new expansion, “Rise of the Hutt Cartel,” has been released for Star Wars: The Old Republic.



“Rise of the Hutt Cartel” pits players up against a new enemy that has risen to challenge both the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire: the Hutt Cartel. Wielding dangerous droids and powerful battle stations, the Hutt Cartel is ready to annihilate all those who oppose their rise to power. The expansion will also include new weapons, armor, and abilities for players to use against the Hutt Cartel. The level cap has also been raised to 55.

In addition to “Rise of the Hutt Cartel,” BioWare is also planning to release the new Game Update 2.0 “Scum and Villany.” This update will allow players to enjoy a new Operation, new Legacy Achievements, four Hard Mode Flashpoints, and other goodies. In addition, players can earn a 5% Guild XP bonus for all experience gained when playing in a guild as well as several other in-game bonuses and benefits.

Players that pre-ordered “Rise of the Hutt Cartel” back in January 7, 2013 will be able to make use of Early Access and start playing today.
