BioWare had a lot to say and show about Onslaught, the next expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, including a bunch of screenshots from the planets of Onderon, Dxun, Mek-Sha and Corellia. The devs also showed off the newest character to be your best friend, the gritty Jedi Padawan Arn:

Apart from all the new images, there was some news to dish out. Notably, SWTOR is getting even better for free players, with previous expansions Shadow of Revan and Rise of the Hutt Cartel becoming free for everyone — no subscription required. Before it launched, I got the scoop on Shadow of Revan directly from the folks at BioWare, so read up on that if you’re looking forward to the soon-to-be free expansion.
Also, if you’re looking to level up some alts in anticipation of Onslaught’s arrival, you can do so with a double XP event, running from July 23 to Aug. 20. That will still give you a couple of weeks to take a break until Onslaught’s launch in September. Or, you know, you can level up another alt.
