Good news for Star Wars: Old Republic fans: there’s lots of new content headed your way this week! I have yet to play Old Republic, but I have played both Knights of the Old Republic I and II. I also plan to try out Old Republic soon. The only thing really stopping me is that my computer isn’t really a gaming computer, but I think it’s about time to try it out anyway and see how it goes!
Back to the new content. The first thing coming this week to Old Republic is the first digital expansion to the game: Rise of the Hutt Cartel.
Info from the press release:
“In Rise of the Hutt Cartel players will battle a ferocious new enemy that has emerged from the shadows to challenge the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire for control. The dangerous Hutt Cartel will unleash never-before-seen Droids and monstrous battle stations that serve as powerful weapons of destruction. All of this, and new new weapons, armor, abilites and five new levels of progression, raising the game’s level cap to 55.”
Rise of the Hutt Cartel is available now for those with early access; for everyone else, it comes out on Sunday, April 14th.

Available to all Old Republic players is the new Game Update 2.0: Scum and Villainy.
