Star Wars: The Old Republic Raise of the Hutt Cartel Expansion Gets a Release Date

on March 25, 2013 12:47 PM

BioWare just announced the release date for Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s digital expansion Raise of the Hutt Cartel.  The expansion will be available on April the 14th, but those that preordered it before January the 7th will get to play it five day earlier, on the 9th.

On April the 9th the update 2.0 “Scum and Villany” will also be launched, bringing forth new level 55 content, Legacy Achievements and more.

Those that will preorder before April the 13th at 4 PM PDT won’t get in the early access, but will still get the Makrin Seedling Mini-Pet, the Dr. Oggurobb Hutt Holostatue and the title “Scourge of the Hutts”.

Considering that BioWare just claimed the success of the game’s new business model, I’m expecting quite a lot of people to rush for level 55 starting on the 14th. I’ll be there. Will you?

Update: For the occasion BioWare also released a new Developer Diary video, that you can check out below.
