EA and BioWare have some new content to bestow upon Star Wars: The Old Republic users in the form of a new story expansion. The expansion, titled Shadow of Revan, will hit the game on December 9.

The story follows the fallen hero Revan, as he leads the extremist Order of Revan faction with the intent to destroy both the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. The Shadow of Revan expansion will offer five story missions, an increased level cap to 60, and new high-level Flashpoints and Operations. Players can carry out their missions across new worlds, such as Rishi and Yavin 4.

Though Star Wars: The Old Republic is free-to-play, the Shadow of Revan expansion will carry a $19.99 price tag, regardless of subscriber status. Those that pre-order by November 2 will unlock the new expansion a week early and also receive a Grand Statue of Revan to display in their player stronghold. They'll also get the Rise of Hutt Cartel expansion, if they don't have it already. Those that pre-order after November 2, but before December 1, will get the pre-order goodies, but won't get the early access period. Subscribers that pre-order will get a 12x experience boost through December 1 and get class story mission access through Level 55.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Hasn't Revan already been killing in that game in a flashpoint on release? I remember fighting both Revan and HK47 at different points in the same flashpoint.

        As inconsequential as any of this, they really shouldn't touch Revan with a 100 foot pole. They should just do their own thing and stop killing any potential a Kotor 3 could have.

          You're looking at Kotor 3. I doubt they'll ever make another.

        He didn't die per se, just disappeared.
