One of my all-time favourite characters from the Star Wars Universe is Jabba the Hutt. His devious schemes, peculiar “poop look” and sense of humour makes him an extremely entertaining figure in the multiracial Star Wars universe. I am therefore thrilled that BioWare is releasing a digital expansion that revolves around the intriguing world of the Hutts.
BioWare and LucasArts have unveiled the “First Look” video for Star Wars: The Old Republic’s new Digital Expansion – Rise of the Hutt Cartel! BioWare expands their Star Wars™ saga with brand new story-based missions pitting both Republic and Imperial forces against the nefarious Hutt Cartel on the new planet of Makeb.
In addition, players can now pre-order Rise of the Hutt Cartel to receive in-game rewards including an exclusive title and two new in-game items once the Digital Expansion launches:
- The Dr. Oggurobb Hutt Holostatue: Train under the illustrious Hutt scientist Dr. Oggurobb with this portable training device that he created in his own image.
- "Scourge of the Hutts" Title: Republic and Imperial forces that adorn this title will be revered across the galaxy.
- The Makrin Seedling Mini-Pet: Get your very own Makrin Seedling to follow you around and creep out your enemies! Possessing bark-like skin and grass-like nerve-rich tissues that blend in perfectly with Makeb’s environment, the Makrin Seedling has a distinguishing and eerie look!
