Star Wars: The Old Republic is getting a new expansion this year and it’s called Onslaught, and it will be free to all subscribers of the MMORPG.
It’s been three years since the last expansion, and based on this blog post by BioWare, this new batch of content will include a brand new story, two new planets to explore, a new Flashpoint, a new Operation (PVE raid), and new abilities, You also get a new playable special called the Nautolans, which you can see how they look below.
Onslaught puts players “at the center of the reignited war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire.“. You’ll explore the “untamed jungles and savage beasts” found in Onderon, and visit the "den of smugglers, pirates, mercenaries, traders, and refugees" in Mek-Sha. And the Onslaught storyline is said to conclude in the new Flashpoint set in a new area of Corellia. The new Operation, on the other hand will be in Dxun, one of Onderon’s largest moons, and will be available at launch.
With Onslaught, the game’s level cap will increase to 75, with each advanced class earning a new ability as they progress to the new cap.
