SWTOR Expands with a New Expansion this Fall

Hey guys, guess what? There’s another Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic expansion coming this fall. According to the announcement, Knights of the Eternal Throne will be SWTOR’s largest expansion to date.

Unfortunately, that’s about all we know about the expansion so far. There’s one additional tidbit of information, though. Anyone who logs on today can check out chapter 1 of the prequel story in Knights of the Fallen Empire. It’s knights this and knights that with SWTOR, which I might add has one of the best acronyms for an MMO to date, next to WoW of course.

This seems like a direct response to World of Warcraft’s looming Legion expansion, with the Legion 7.0 prepatch coming even sooner. Next week, in fact. We’ll see if WoW’s sixth expansion has enough to do to keep people occupied for more than a few months. Bioware are doing whatever they can to make sure people remember that SWTOR exists and that it is still being actively supported, which considering the lifecycle of MMOs these days is nothing to scoff at.

EA and Bioware still have plenty of time to unveil the potential features of the expansion, but the fact they didn’t bother to reveal at least a loose idea of what the expansion will contain is either because they don’t have all the fine details planned out yet, or they know they’d be disappointing and decided to keep it all to themselves.

Guess we’ll see soon enough.
