A new expansion has been announced at the EA press conference at E3, titled Star Wars The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire. The game was described as a way of bringing the story back to the series, the most requested improvement from fans.
While we didn’t see any gameplay, we were shown a trailer giving a vague outline of the story in the new expansion. It will apparently revolve around a rivalry between two assumed twin brothers who take sides of the republic and the empire. There are also a few screenshots and some concept art here.
Here are few of the screenshots:
The site tells us that we will start at level 60 to accommodate newcomers. There will be eight class stories, you will be able to build a team of allies with friends and apparently there will be “new chapters released on a regular basis.”
The expansion will be completely free for all subscribers and will be launching this October.
