BioWare has plans to release the Rise of the Hutt Cartelexpansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic on April 14, 2013 in all territories, the studio announced today. Pricing for the new content is $9.99 for paying subscribers and $19.99 for free-to-play users.
This expansion bumps the level cap up to 55 and opens access to the planet Makeb, among other things. There's five-day early access in it for those players who pre-ordered by January 7, though if you missed out on that offer, current pre-orders still include extra incentives: the "Scourge of the Hutts" title, a Makrin Seedling Mini-Pet, and the Dr. Oggurobb Hutt Holostatue.
