BioWare producer: More surprises in store for SWTOR fans 'next year'


Earlier today, BioWare and EA announced the first digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic. Titled Rise of the Hutt Cartel, the new add-on raises the level cap to 55 while adding a brand new storyline involving the merciless Hutt Cartel. In the expansion, players travel to the dual-faction planet of Makeb which is shaping up to be one of the "most breathtakingly beautiful settings" in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

BioWare didn't reveal too many details, but did promise an "epic and exciting" clash with the Hutt Cartel. Apparently, that's just the "tip of the iceberg" for BioWare and Star Wars: The Old Republic, which recently began offering a free-to-play option after subscription numbers began dwindling.

"We have a lot more surprises in store for our fans next year!" teased BioWare Austin Executive Producer, Jeff Hickman. Hickman stopped short of revealing any details, but for Rise of the Hutt Cartel is definitely a good start.

What sort of surprises or announcements would you like to see in the future for Star Wars: The Old Republic?
