The entire galaxy falls under a new threat; one that could destroy everything. The expansion, “Rise of the Hutt Cartel” puts players on the planet Makeb, which is split between the Empire and the Republic. There will be more enemies and more allies to make throughout the missions. There are five missions with this expansion, and the level cap is raised to 55.
The Executive Producer of BioWare Austin, Jeff Hickman, stated: “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. 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 arrive in Spring 2013. It will sell for $20 USD (around £11.99) for free-to-play players. Subscribers will pay only half that.
