is titled "Rise of the Hutt Cartel" and will see a level increase to 55, new story content and also the introduction of the Makeb planet.

Experience 5 new levels, including story-driven missions, as the level cap increases to 55!
Face-off against a frightening new enemy when you battle the nefarious Hutt Cartel.
The fate of the new planet Makeb is at stake... and in your hands.
Currently information is still light on what else players can expect from the first expansion, however for those eager you can expect to pay $9.99 as a subscriber or $19.99 for anyone who is using the new free-to-play option. BioWare are also offering five days of early access to the expansion if you pre-order
before January 7th 2013, with both pricing plans able to take up on the offer. Pre-ordering
will also garner a "preferred status" for free-to-play players, allowing access to more of the games content.
