Gamers who preordered Rise of the Hutt Cartel on or before January 7 will receive early access to the expansion and be able to jump in beginning April 9. On that day, game update 2.0: Scum and Villainy will go live, adding new level 55 content and legacy achievements.

The Rise of the Hutt Cartel add-on increases the MMO game's level cap to 55, adds a new planet called Makeb, and features fully voiced conversations. It will be available by digital download for $20 (subscribers can grab the content for $10).

Star Wars: The Old Republic launched a year ago behind generally favorable reviews, selling 2 million copies in its first three months. Subscriber figures fell, and the game added a free-to-play option in November.
