Take up arms against the Hutts on the planet of Makeb.
At the ongoing GDC, Bioware announced that their first expansion for their MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic will be arriving on April 14th . Rise of the Hutt Cartel will enlist players on the brand new planet Makeb, where they must join forces to put an end to the nefarious deeds of the Hutts.
The expansion introduces a brand new storyline, new quests, and a much needed level-cap raise which now rests at Lvl 55 instead of 50. The much awaited Update 2.0 for the main client will also arrive alongside the expansion.
Although The Old Republic has gone Free-to-play last year, there were several restrictions placed on non-subscribers. Rise of the Hutt Cartel will not be free and the regular price is $20 while subscribers can get it for $10. Those who have pre-ordered the game before January 7th will receive a five-day head start.
