Electronic Arts put out a press release today in anticipation of E3 next week, and tucked away near the bottom — because it comes last alphabetically — is the announcement of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s next expansion:
The largest story-driven expansion to date, Knights of the Fallen Empire, marks a renewed focus on cinematic storytelling in Star Wars: The Old Republic. The expansion will deliver on the hallmarks of what makes a great BioWare™ game: new worlds to explore, new companions to recruit, and a dynamic story that players will be able to shape based on the choices they make.
Shadow of Revan had no small amount of story content associated with it, so announcing something as “the largest story-driven expansion to date” is either joyfully tantalizing or just marketing hyperbole. There’s not much else to go on at this time, but we’ll definitely be listening for all the details during E3 next week!
