It’s been a long time coming, but the forthcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic 3.0 expansion is expected to be officially announced later this month, with a teaser trailer to hit the internet next week. This is straight from the horse’s mouth, from The Old Republic’s Senior Producer Bruce Maclean.

The details spilled as Maclean took to the official forums to speak with a fan about potentially spotting new details regarding the expansion as early as next week. Maclean let the cat out of the bag with his own statement:

“We have been holding back 3.0 details because . But now that Forged Alliances is out there with this morning’s launch of 2.10 we’re letting folks have a little time with Rakata Prime and then spilling the beans on 3.0. Look for a teaser within a week, and then a full announce before the end of month!”

The first expansion was released earlier this year in the form of Galactic Strongholds, which allowed players access to their own customizable housing, made available to early access players on August 19, with a full release to all players in October. BioWare has continued to support the long-running MMO with additional content and expansions since its release. With the announcement of 3.0, hopefully another new set of content will be on its way in a few months again as well.

    So far having alot of fun playing through this with my wife but calling this free to play is a joke I can NOT trade without paying, Only 2 items can be sold at the AH, Here is a list, as long as you are a free player you get only a few things and a massive amount of locked content. I have held firm on my understanding of the subsription based game and pay to win this is SWTOR, Microtransactions and Free to Play are Free with the cosmetic items for sale with full content Free and open. It is my understanding that when you pay in these games you can get the same stuff as free to play players but faster when the free people must quest to get it. So STWOR is a hybrid Pay to Win game and I despise this.

        umad starwars nerd? Go fellate your father no lifer.

        • ninetenduh on September 20, 2014

          Well “soon to be Down” ? SWTOR still makes more Money than most games out there since it hit 4th place on the earnings list. and if you dont find People to play with than it is prolly your fault. you should change your attitude than !

    I would’ve like the game, but I’m not a big fan of being a membership with a shitty ass combat system, if they implemented the combat system like an actual ACTION combat system, like TERA, BoD, Wildstar, Etc. Then I wouldn’t mind playing this game. For a star wars game I really want an action MMORPG, not a boring game. If you’re going to play this game might as well play WoW.
