Subscribers of Star Wars: The Old Republic will be happy to know that Bioware is rewarding you with some freebies.
Going live today, you’ll be able to get the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion at no extra expense. That’s a deal even a Toydarian couldn’t refuse…
The Rise of the Hutt Cartel add-on was initially released in April at $9.99 for subscribers. With it you get five new levels of missions, a level cap increase to 55, and access to the planet Makeb. Not to worry if you’ve already got the expansion, as Bioware have said that you should also be receiving some extras. We should note that this free update doesn’t apply to Free-To-Play gamers; if you want the add-on it'll set you back $20.
The offer comes in preparation for Game Update 2.4 that Bioware will be releasing on October 1, which will focus on level 55 content.
Bioware also announced the adoption of streaming for SW:TOR which they hope will attract more players by lessening initial download sizes.
