Gamers in the Old Republic now have a new threat to contend with - The Hutt Cartel.

Today sees the release of Rise of the Hutt Cartel the first expansion kit for Bioware's The Old Republic.

Set on the planet Makeb, Cartel expands the playing universe as the player (as either faction) tries to prevent the Hutt Cartel from taking over the planet and grabbing its resources for themselves.

You must have the Adobe Flash Player installed to view this player.

Rise of the Hutt Cartel raises the game’s level cap to 55 and allows players to access a host of new, higher-level group content in the recently released update 2.0: Scum and Villainy. It also introduces new technological gear including Macrobinoculars and Seeker Droids, which take players on galaxy-spanning new missions to unlock valuable rewards.

Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer of Star Wars: The Old Republic had this to say...

“We’ve worked hard over the last year to ensure we were listening to player feedback and acting on it. This month, we’re not only adding hours of new story-driven content and features with Rise of the Hutt Cartel, but we are also adding depth and content to the end game with our latest Game Update 2.0: Scum and Villainy... All of this new content, combined with a much larger, more active and engaged community since the addition of the Free-to-Play option last year, makes this the best time to join or return to The Old Republic!

Rise of the Hutt Cartel is available worldwide for $19.99 (USD), or at half price for current Subscribers ($9.99 USD).
