Star Wars: The Old Republic's Shadow of Revan expansion is now live, bringing a swathe of new content including increase in levels and a new storyline arc to the free-to-play MMO.
The new expansion will deliver a chunk of new story content centered around Revan, a powerful Jedi central to the plot of BioWare and Obsidian’s Knights of the Old Republic RPGs. According to its description, Shadow of Revan will focus in on the re-emergence of “a long-hidden sect of extremists” led by Revan intending to enact a plan that “will leave the Republic and the Empire in ashes.”
What this amounts to in terms of gameplay is “five new levels” of narrative, a new level cap of 60 and new “high-level multiplayer Flashpoints and Operations.” The expansion will also add in a fresh swathe of gear and reputation rewards as well as a new “discipline system” that will allow players to “customize [their] combat experience” by selecting new disciplines as they advance through the game.
Unfortunately for all free-to-play players, the new content is subject to all the same restrictions as the rest of the game. To see BioWare’s full announcement, feel free to head over to the game’s official website
