SWTOR Gets First Expansion in Three Years
- New planets, Flashpoint, and Operation.
- New gear slot to modify abilities.
- New playable race.
Star Wars: The Old Republic has had six expansion so far, the last of which released in December of 2016. Now the seventh, Onslaught, raises the level cap to 75 and will launch in September of this year. Free to play for all subscribers, Onslaught describes itself as the following:
Star Wars: The Old Republic: Onslaught puts you at the center of the reignited war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Will you remain loyal to your faction or work to undermine and sabotage their war efforts? The choice is yours.
Explore two new planets, a new Flashpoint on the war-torn world of Corellia, a new Operation set in the lush jungles of Dxun and more! Reap the spoils of war with reworked itemization, an increased level cap, and new abilities.
In addition to these features, Onslaught brings with it a new gear slot for “tactical items.” These are referred to as “build-defining items,” which modify the behavior of certain abilities. In tandem with set bonuses, players will be able to create a larger variety of playstyles than before. Tactical items may be acquired through PvP, PvE, Galactic Command, and crafting.
