Rise of the Hut Cartel

BioWare announced today players will square-off against the ugly, chubby, Hutts in the first Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel, coming Spring 2013. Starting today, subscribers to Star Wars: The Old Republic can Pre-Order Rise of the Hutt Cartel for only $9.99, 50% of the regular price. Meanwhile, Free-to-Play Players can purchase the expansion for $19.99. Those who pre-order before January 7, 2013 will receive five days of Early Access to the new 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. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. We have a lot more surprises in store for our fans next year!”

Rise of the Hutt Cartel will send players to the planet Makeb, where they will continue their journey and level their characters to an increased level cap of 55.

      Sadly, I gave it up a few months ago. As much as I loved the game when it first came out, I just couldn't stick with it. I haven't even logged in since it went F2P. Maybe I'll give it another look after the expansion hits.
