SWTOR's Onslaught Expansion Arrives In September, Free To Subscribers
This weekend's Star Wars Celebration was jam-packed with all kinds of juicy reveals for fans -- and even non-fans, who saw their social media feeds explode after each new info drop. New games, new TV shows, and a new movie were all part of the epic weekend's highlights, but for our site, the biggest news was the announcement of a new expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic.
In Onslaught, you'll be plopped down in the middle of a new war between the Republic and the Sith, forced to choose sides in the galaxy-wide conflict. Players will visit two new planets: Onderon, which was featured in the single-player Old Republic games, and Mek-Sha, a crime-riddled station carved out from an asteroid. The finale of the story arc takes place on Corellia, in a flashpoint suitable for solo players as well as groups. A new operation on Onderon's moon Dxun, is also part of the expansion.
Also new in this expansion is a new gear slot for "tactical items," which are described as "build-defining items [that] directly alter your abilities and playstyle." They can be acquired via a number of different game modes, including PvE, PvP, through the Galactic Command system, and from crafting.
