  • "Scourge of the Hutts" Title: Republic and Imperial forces that adorn this title will be revered across the galaxy.
  • The Makrin Seedling Mini-Pet: Get your very own Makrin Seedling to follow you around and creep out your enemies! Possessing bark-like skin and grass-like nerve-rich tissues that blend in perfectly with Makeb’s environment, the Makrin Seedling has a distinguishing and eerie look!
The in-game items and title listed above are only available to players that pre-order the Digital Expansion. All players that have already pre-ordered Rise of the Hutt Cartel will also receive these in-game items when the Digital Expansion launches this Spring.

My Bounty Hunter will enjoy that, but not my Sith. No way will he take training lessons from a Hutt. ;)

LOL yeah... you are right... it would be beneath my Sith as well....  crap....  no way we can disguise this pile of rotten meat

Not sure though about my DS Jedi Knight - I think it would greatly amuse him.

Yeah, I have a bunch of cartel coins as well. Having a trainer with me at all times will help in leveling alts. Looking forward to the new content incoming.

Hm, I don´t know. More of the same for 20$ is still expensive.

Just can´t swallow that plastic looking art style anymore. Seems like they follow the look of the other planets again.

Troopers shooting endlessly from behind a blockade like on all other planets?

Excitement 3/10  - minus 1 point for that "SGR" absurdity.

When will they announce THE SUPER SECRET SPACE PROJECT?

no time soon

 

from nov. 29th q&a:

Q: How is the super space project doing? Does it exist? Schubert: Oh, it exists. Hickman: I was actually playing what you're talking about yesterday, running through the prototype demo. I wish I could give you details. It's great. It's a departure from our current space game. We have a team dedicated to working on it. But it is far out in the future. You won't hear anything about it any time soon. Schubert: It is under wraps. It is a lot of fun. It's definitely not anything we've shipped in the original product.

LOL.... SWTOR has the slowest "speeders" in the galaxy. Seems like the gas pedal hasn´t been invented 3500 years before Luke Skywalker was born.

I actually like the new armor designs. SWTOR has some of the ugliest armor for end game with exception of few peices that you can mix and match. I will give it a shot so that i can make my smuggler look a little decent for first time. I havent played SWTOR for months now this might be the right time to return.

I agree. Most of the end game armour is hideous. It looks like something that belongs in the Rocky Horror Picture show. They had a poll up recently on the forums asking about armour designs for the future and I replied, "For the future, please think MORE intimidating, LESS fabulous.I'm tired of my Sith having to use orange gear because he doesn't want to look like a drag queen."  The Warrior armour is cool, but the Inquisitor armour...I just don't know what they were thinking with that.

The original offer was the special items until 01/07/13. Now they have extended it until the expansion comes out and thrown in some early access. Wonder why it changed?

I didn't buy the expansion when it was first announced because it seemd they were trying to force the sales into a 'crunched' period of time. Someone here mentioned buying with CC. When it was first announced they said it wasn't going to bee CC purchasable. Just RMT. Did that change? CC I might do. RMT..no....

no, it was the early access was available if you pre-ordered by 1/07(which is still the case, so if you pre-order now you dont get the early access). they hadnt mentioned getting anything else by pre-ordering until now.

from the orginal press release:

http://www.swtor.com/info/news/press-release/20121218

AUSTIN, Texas – Dec 18, 2012 – There is a new threat in the Star Wars™ universe and the future of the Republic, the Empire and the entire galaxy is at stake! Today, BioWare™, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA), and LucasArts announced that players will face-off against the ruthless Hutt Cartel in the first Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel, coming Spring 2013. Beginning today, Star Wars: The Old Republic Subscribers can Pre-Order the Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel for only $9.99, 50% of the regular price. Free-to-Play Players can purchase the Digital Expansion for $19.99. Any player who pre-orders before January 7, 2013 will receive five days of Early Access* to the new fully-voiced story driven content.

 

no idea about whether you can use cartel coins to get it

 

edit: unless it has changed and they just havent updated their faq, it looks like its still a no to cartel coins

Can I use Cartel Coins to pre-purchase Rise of the Hutt Cartel?

No, you will not be able to pre-order the Digital Expansion with Cartel Coins. This Digital Expansion is only available for purchase on our website at www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/buy.

I hope it's one holo statue per character so I can train whilst in the field when i level up. I liked the video , especially the sail barge. One thing i have realised ( without getting into too many spoilers ) is that when you end chapter 3 there are many choices at the end for characters and I am now wondering if all those choices are incorporated into the planet Makeb ? If so then that will be quite diverse and have different choices on the planet. You see I want the continuation of class stories but if what i mentioned earlier happens then at least I won't be too bored playing the planet on all my characters. For $10 for subbs it's cheap and I might actually be cheerfull.

Cheers,

BadOrb.
