Chapter 4: Rise of the Hutt Cartel



While examining all the items that you can buy in the Cartel Market (cash shop that is getting introduced with the free to play option for SWTOR) we came across one very interesting item:



In our opinion, this means that the next content patch will bring the fourth chapter in our character’s story and it will be called Rise of the Hutt Cartel. For those of us closely following Star Wars: The Old Republic this comes as no surprise. During our interview at Gamescom 2012 we were told by both Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer of SWTOR (watch the interview here), and Gabe Amatangelo, Principal Lead PvP Designer (watch the interview here), that the next content we can expect will be happening on a new planet Makeb and that it will be bringing the continuation of our personal story. We will try and find out more information about this next content patch and we’ll update this article as new information becomes available. Here’s what we know right now:

  • New Chapter will be happening on a new planet – Makeb
  • It will be unlockable in the Cartel Market
  • There might be same sex romance options present (source – Gabe Amatangelo interview)
  • Level cap might be raised (speculated because when Makeb was first announced level 55 cap was mentioned)

    I personaly dont think it will come with 1.5…. found also found HK-51 and other stuff, back when the game was released. It took almost a year for HK-51 to be released….

      No – this is not coming out with 1.5. This is future content that I think we won;t see until some time next year (2013). February/March perhaps.

    Only error in your post is the continuation of personal story. They’ve already stated over and over again this will NOT be a personal story arc, everyone will have the same story, and that is likely how all chapters here on out will be. They said they like the overall feel of people being grouped and rolling on convo options, so the continuation of specific character stories isnt likely to happen.
