Additional information regarding the expansion will be shared in the coming months, EA said.

The Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion will be available by digital download for $20 (subscribers can grab the content for $10). Those who preorder by January 7 will receive five days of early access to the content.

The Rise of the Hutt Cartel will not be sold as a boxed product in stores.

Star Wars: The Old Republic launched a year ago this month 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 last month.
