It looks like the first Star Wars The Old Republic expansion is on its way, Rise of the Hutt Cartel. This will be the first official expansion of SWTOR. This game expansion looks to be a bit more than the game additions we have been enjoying over the last year. The biggest part of this expansion is that it is going to increase the level cap of Star Wars TOR to 55.

The new Star Wars TOR expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, will cost a few dollars but it seems reasonable for what we know about it right now. Subscribers will be able to pre purchase the SWTOR game expansion Rise of the Hutt Cartel for $10 dollars while non-subscribers will be able to purchase Rise of the Hutt Cartel for $20. If you preorder Star Wars The Old Republic: Rise of the Hutt Cartel you will also be able to have 5 days of early access should you order it before January 8th.

Here are the details for SWTOR: Rise of the Hutt Cartel as we know them now.
