SWTOR Knights of the Eternal Throne

Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016, an extravaganza of all things Star Wars, is going strong on its second day in London. It was from the convention's prominent main stage -- hosted by Warwick Davis, even -- that Star Wars: The Old Republic Director of Design James Ohlen made the announcement of the next expansion for the game, Knights of the Eternal Throne.

You can listen to Ohlen talk about SWTOR starting at 3 hours, 43 minutes, and 30 seconds into the video of the Day 2 live stream below. After getting past the basics of the game, he announces that Chapter 1 of Knights of the Fallen Empire is now free for all players. Then there's a trailer recapping the team's experiences in creating the game and spilling some data, such as "87 million characters created" and "1.5 billion hours choosing your own path."

Then, at the end of the trailer, there's the Knights of the Eternal Throne teaser and the promise that it would be out in Fall 2016. There's not much to go on besides a title, though it seems reasonable to assume that it will continue, to some degree, the storyline from KotFE; whether it follows the same episodic format as its predecessor or is more of an "all-in-one" expansion still remains to be seen.

The webpage for the expansion is similarly information-light, but you can check it out and sign up to receive regular news updates.

What is the point? If they want a story based game, just make a new star wars game, make it single player, and make it a lot more interesting.

They're literally just trying to sell us a Star Wars skinned World of Warcraft, with all the fun parts of WoW stripped (story, setting, gameplay, endgame) with the SW universe and extremely mediocre everything with a decent story.

I seriously don't understand why they don't just make a single player game instead, a story driven MMO without endgame content makes zero sense.
