BioWare’s Star Wars MMO got a fresh infusion of gangsters this week with the release of the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion pack.
Starting on the planet of Makeb, players can explore a whole new part of the Star Wars universe as they battle the Hutt Cartel, who are moving in on the planet to strip it of its resources. The expansion also adds new gear and missions, as well as the rewards that come along with them.
Rise of the Hutt Cartel also works hand in hand with the ‘Scum and Villainy’ 2.0 game update and raises the level cap to 55.
“We’ve worked hard over the last year to ensure we were listening to player feedback and acting on it. This month, we’re not only adding hours of new story-driven content and features with Rise of the Hutt Cartel, but we are also adding depth and content to the end game with our latest Game Update 2.0: Scum and Villainy,” said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer of Star Wars: The Old Republic. “All of this new content, combined with a much larger, more active and engaged community since the addition of the Free-to-Play option last year, makes this the best time to join or return to The Old Republic!”
Star Wars: The Old republic is available now and is free to play. The Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion will cost you $19.99 USD and you can get it right here.
