Rise of the Hutt Cartel will raise level cap.
The first expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic has been announced as a digital-only purchase.
Rise of the Hutt Cartel, set to release next spring, will raise the level cap to 55, add more story-based content and add plenty of new gear, powers and abilities. In addition, most of the expansion will take place on Makeb.
Subscribers of the game will be able to get the content for $9.99, while free-to-play gamers will pay $19.99. Also, pre-ordering on the game's website before Jan. 7 will let you play the expansion five days earlier than others that buy it.
