Star Wars: The Old Republic Is Getting An Expansion

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Next Expansion, Knights of the Eternal Throne Is Out On December 2nd.

Star Wars: The Old Republic the free to play MMO by BioWare. Has released a six-minute narrative trailer for Knights of the Eternal Throne. When the expansion was first announced, details were fairly thin.

Now we know that players will assume the role of the Outlander. A veteran of the Great Galactic War, who’ll face off against the unscrupulous Emperor Valkorion and Empress Vaylin in a bid to conquer the Eternal Throne.

The trailer called “Betrayed” shows how a talented young warrior is lured to the dark side. Check it out below.

The six-minute reel might not be reflective of the game’s minute-by-minute presentation. But it provides another take on the franchise’s coming of age stories. The theme overlaps with that of Luke and Anakin Skywalker. As well as, Rey and Jyn Erso of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.


“Ruling the galaxy offers expanded power and influence through the new Galactic Command system,” an update reads on the Old Republic site. “Alone or with friends, players can ignite light and dark side battles, face all-new erupting confrontations known as Uprisings, and unlock powerful rewards. In the latest expansion, players will be able to customize their combat encounters with three challenge levels, giving everyone the option to play their way.”

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Knights of the Eternal Throne add-on is due December 2. If subscriptions are your bag, players who vouch for the game’s Premium option can get early access from November 29.
