First announced in April and delayed until October, Star Wars The Old Republic’s Onslaught expansion is finally launching this afternoon. As we’ve been covering for the last many months, Onslaught includes the continuation of the storyline, the new destinations in Onderon and Mek-Sha, the four-person Corellia flashpoint, the Dxun raid, new gear, and new benefits for the Legacy system.
“War between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire blazes across the galaxy. Crucial resources dwindle as piracy and crime escalate dramatically. Amid this chaos, the Alliance Commander has the chance to tip the scales in favor of either faction, committing their elite forces to decide the fate of the galaxy. As the Sith Empire prepares to make a decisive strike against a newly-constructed Republic shipyard on the planet Corellia, members of the Dark Council see victory on the horizon and begin plotting against one another in anticipation of the spoils. Meanwhile, Republic forces must race against time to muster reinforcements from across the galaxy in order to defend Corellia from the Sith.”
