The episodic-based Knights of the Fallen Empire launches on October 27. It will be free for all subscribers.

The expansion "represents the epic return to BioWare-style storytelling," creative director James Ohlen said during the briefing. For lots more on Knights of the Fallen Empire, check out the video below to see five reasons it might be time to return to The Old Republic.

The Old Republic launched in 2011 after its development reportedly cost $200 million. The game failed to attract a wide enough userbase to sustain its subscription-based model and switched to free-to-play just 11 months after release. However, the game appears to remain a major contributor for EA, as a recent report found that the game generated $165 million in 2013 alone.
