E3 2012: New Races, Worlds, and More For The Old Republic

on June 4, 2012 5:01 PM

It’s a big announcement for EA’s MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic. First off we have a new race, the Cathar, which will be playable. The level cap will also be raised, likely to 60 but that detail wasn’t given. We’re going to see a new Terror From Beyond operation as well as a new warzone, Ancient Hypergate.

We’re also going to see a new companion, HK-51 for all classes as well as a new space mission called Space Station Assault which felt reminiscent of the Death Star trench run. In the trailer below you’ll also get to see some new combat abilities as well as a new location, the planet Makeb. With this much content the rumors about an expansion pack for The Old Republic coming this year may just be true!
