Rise of the Hutt Cartel Launch Day Arrives

Rise of the Hutt Cartel Launch Day Arrives - Star Wars: The Old Republic - MMORPG.com

Star Wars: The Old Republic players will want to head into the game as today marks the official launch of the first expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, as well as update v2.0 "Scum & Villainy". The expansion adds a new planet and story arc surrounding the Hutts on Makeb. 

Makeb is a planet highly contested in the intergalactic war due to an abundance of an all-important resource known as Isotope-5. Realizing the value of Isotope-5, the Hutt Cartel has moved to gain a stranglehold on this rare resource and broker their own position in the conflict between the Empire and the Republic. Players who land on Makeb will find quickly that they are key players in this conflict with the Hutt Cartel. In storylines that are unique per faction, intrepid adventurers will be able to insert themselves into the action, take on the Hutt Cartel, advance the interests of their faction, and even determine the fate of Makeb itself.
