And on October 27th, all subscribers to SWTOR will be able to play the new expansion for free. The Knights of the Fallen Empire page on the official website reports that the game will start anew at level 60 with the level cap raised to 65. You will also get the option to create a brand-new character at level 60, starting the story fresh.
The first nine chapters of the new story featuring the latest galactic threat The Emperor of the Eternal Throne will be available on day one with more chapters coming soon after.
The details of the story are sketchy as to how it will connect to the base SWTOR game, but we do know that all the old group content — flashpoints and operations — will be available at the increased level.
Unfortunately, no gameplay was shown during the presentation, only a two-minute-long CGI trailer showing showing a set of twins who appear to be Force users in training. One of the characters we know is named Arcann, and the primary adult figure in the video is Emperor Valkorion.
Below, we have a gallery of images for you peruse as well as the full CGI trailer.
Look for more information later this week with the Hyperspace Beacon and when we interview the crew at BioWare from the E3 show floor.
