The new digital expansion will offer five new levels, which also includes a story-driven mission, as soon as the level cap increases to 55. With the level cap increase, players will earn new abilities, skill points, gear, and more down the road.

The Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel will now send players to Makeb, a dual-faction planet where players will continue their battles with the merciless Hutt Cartel. During their journey, players will meet new allies, make new enemies, and uncover the cutting-edge technology on this vibrant planet.

"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!"

Moreover, players can experience the complete storylines of the eight iconic Star Wars classes, all the way to Level 50 without having to pay a monthly fee. The new Free-to-Play option will complement the existing subscription offering, providing greater flexibility in how to experience ‘Star Wars: The Old Republic.’

“Star Wars: The Old Republic is set thousands of years before the classic Star Wars movies. Players are immersed as they team up with friends online to fight in heroic battles reminiscent of the films, exploring a galaxy of vibrant planets, experiencing visceral Star Wars combat, all set to a sweeping musical score,” the official press release adds.

‘Star Wars: The Old Republic’ Subscribers can now pre-order the Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel for only $9.99, which is 50 percent of the regular price. As far as Free-to-Play Players are concerned, they can purchase the Digital Expansion for $19.99.

Any player who pre-orders before Jan. 7, 2013 will receive five days of early access to the new fully-voiced story-driven content.
