BioWare and Lucasfilm on Thursday announced the release date for the next installment in Star Wars: The Old Republic - Knight of the Fallen Empire's episodic story.

Anarchy in Paradise delivers a new ally known as Firebrand. Here's how BioWare sums up the story:

"Her mission is to destroy the Eternal Empire by attacking Zakuul and crushing the seat of power, the Eternal Throne, by any means necessary. It will be up to the Outlander to decide just how far he or she is willing to go to beat the Eternal Emperor. Players will experience the grim consequences of their past decisions and feel the grip of the hand of fate on their dangerous journey."

The Old Republic is a free-to-play game, though it still offers the option to subscribe. All subscribers receive every Knights of the Fallen Empire chapter released so far as well as those to come in the future. Getting into the Knights of the Fallen Empire stories requires you to be level 60.

In addition, BioWare has announced updates for its Subscriber Rewards program. People who subscribe by January 11 will receive an HK-55 companion permanently. That's just one of the perks, however. Below is a quick rundown of the rewards program, written by BioWare, while even more details are available here.

  • Players who are Subscribers on January 11, 2016 will receive HK-55 as a permanent personal Companion.
  • Those who are Subscribers on the first of each month, from February through August 2016, will receive an in-game reward item themed to HK-55’s gear and weapons along with two-day Early Access to the chapter releasing that month.
  • Subscribers as of February 1, 2016 will receive the HK-55-inspired Jetpack Mount, built to withstand the harshest of conditions as players hover their way through the galaxy.
  • Players who stay subscribed through the period of January 11 to August 1, 2016 will be invited to play a bonus chapter in which they can play as HK-55!
