Knights of the Eternal Throne is Star Wars: The Old Republic's new expansion, and it's out now

Vie for control of the galaxy 'for the first time ever in a Star Wars game.'


Knights of the Eternal Throne, the latest expansion for BioWare's free-to-play Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, is available now.

According to BioWare, Eternal Throne gives fans the opportunity to do something new to Star Wars games: become the ruler of the galaxy.

"This year, it’s even more personal. We’ve raised the stakes for the player as they fight to seize control of the Eternal Throne and rule the galaxy,” said Producer Ben Irving. “But that’s not the end of your story. In fact, it’s just the beginning. You must be prepared to make difficult choices along the way to not only take the throne, but also fight to keep it."

Conquering the Eternal Throne opens up the Galactic Command progression system. Predicated on combat, the progression system lets you play modes such as Uprising, where you and three allies battle enemy factions attempting to usurp their command.

Every battle asks players to choose between Light and Dark sides, and battles will break out across the galaxy in a domino-like effect.
