They never said expansions would be free. They said *non-expansion content updates* would be free. The whole reason why people are angry is that they feel this is just a simple content update disguised as an expansion.

Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Rise of the Hutt Cartel
The first Digital Expansion for The Old Republic™ introduces an aggressive new enemy threatening the future of the galaxy: the Hutt Cartel

Experience 5 new levels, including story-driven missions, as the level cap increases to 55!
Face-off against a frightening new enemy when you battle the nefarious Hutt Cartel.
The fate of the new planet Makeb is at stake... and in your hands.
Stay tuned for more information coming soon - Over the next few months we will reveal more exciting new features!



It is an expansion, it only costs $10, stop adding to the already 100 retarded threads that are WRONG!

His analysis isn't that bad. Belsavis one of the largest planets, has datacrons and two main planet storylines. That being said, if they gave us Belsavis with many high quality faction-story missions I'd be okay. The issue is that with so many of the original writers gone, I doubt we're going to be seeing the same quality from the story missions. I HOPE I'm wrong. I'm willing to pay the $9.99 if it has a new Operation and Flashpoint attached.

All you are entitled to for your 15 bucks is the ability to log in and play the game. Minus downtime for maintenance of course....thats it.

Where did we ever grow this entitlement mentality that we are owed anything else?

Sure they are.

I always see people who "unsubbed"..yet still occupy these forums spreading their doom and gloom. Will some? maybe...but Im betting most of them saying they will are BSing. Scratch down the names in this thread who are "unsubbing" and keep an eye out for them after Makeb, they'll still be here ************ about something Makeb didnt include.

I don't get why so many people on this thread still play this game. When this news broke I was excited a new world, new gear, new dailies and bosses plus 5 new levels all for 10 bucks. Man this made my day maybe even my week "I know I am a sad middle aged man".

Then you come on the forums and people are yelling about the fact that it should be free, arguing on whether it is a expansion pack or DLC whatever. The great thing about this is if you are not 50 you don't need to buy the thing just keep doing what you are doing and then at 50 decide. Now for those already at 50 yeah you are in tight spot but only if you getting caught in semantics either you want to play the game or not? Simple really if you are not excited about the new content then you need to ask yourself do you really want to keep playing? I don't mean this in a mean way I had a break for about 2 months to give me some space and to do some real life stuff. Feels great to be back by the way but sorry for the digression. Really if this does not at least make you at least a little excited maybe it is time to take some time off, the game will be here when you get back.

Keep in mind that this announcement is just the start – as we approach Makeb's launch, you'll see more details about the content coming with Rise of the Hutt Cartel!

$10 For an expansion is very cheap. Makeb brings in a lot of new things which people including have been waiting for a very long time. It is also a very prompt and quaint release timing since patch 1.7. I am extremely pleased.

Thanks Bioware for taking the first true next step in you great game! I will be around for many more years to come and am looking forward to this expansion and I have already bought it!

Umm...no without the continuing character story line...this is not an expansion no matter how you spin it.

Look to be honest, if you guys would just let the subscriber's be able to buy with their cartel coins, alot of the grief would rightly so go away.
We didn't start the Star Wars,They were already fightin' em,since George was writing them!!
