If the person does not buy or do not pre order the Rise of the Hutt Cartel he'll be able to play and get the level 55 or even for someone who is free to play will be able to get the lvl 55 among other bonus that is bringing Expansion ?
No they won't, level 50 is the maximum level if tou don't buy the expansion.

It kinda irks me they didn't include a 'freelancer' smuggler/BH that followed the Hutt side of things - the two classes have never been 100% on one side.
I agree, I think its a good idea to explore a relatively neglected faction.

Concerning smuggler and bounty hunter I think its important that SWTOR, being an MMO, ascribes them to particular factions. But yes, while they often if not always side with Republic and Empire respectively, they do often work for Hutts. But like I said, they need to conform to the MMO format.

However I definitely feel a sense of independence from the Empire and the Republic in those classes. The first chapters at least are all about YOU, not the factions. And throughout the game you always side with whoever pays the most and whoever gets the most freedom and have perfectly 'freelance' motives for assisting Republic and Empire.

And personally my BH would side with the Empire over the Hutts, the Empire are more powerful and have more money, and the Hutt's a strictly neutral so my BH can work for them when he wants. Any 'rebellion' like Makeb will be swiftly put down, and more money can be gained by being on the winning side. Still, I reckon you can probably dabble with both sides when you get on the planet, but we shall see.

I think it looks more like Naboo than it does Alderaan - I'd like to point out that even the armor has a very "Naboo" look to it...the blue and burgundy I mean. I guess both planets are quite similar, but I kept seeing "Naboo".

Honestly, they need to list all the features soon that will be in it. I want to buy it but just a planet and a few levels isent enough for the 10 bucks imo. For a expansion it should have more then what they are currently stating, i personally think it should run along the lines of:

1. New Planet - This has been confirmed.
2. New Levels - This has been confirmed.
3. New Story Quests - Hasent been confirmed if i am correct.
4. Two New PvP Warzones - No confirmation.
5. One-Two New Ops - No confirmation.
6. One-Two New Flashpoints - No confirmation.

This is what i think should be made in the expansion without a doubt about it. Just a planet that looks decent along with quests is no where near the money. They still havent said anything about the extra stuff but hopefully they do sometime soon for i can make my decision .

I actually think this looks cool. I think the only challenge will be making it seem like a world under Hutt oppression other than yet another war torn world. The concept looks good just hope the execusion is as good.

Is one planet an expansion, personaly I say no but hopefully there will be more coming out that just the single planet and 5 extra levels.

The new planet looks really awesome actually. The graphics and scenery definitely have improved. Oh and OMG I want that yellow trooper armor so bad!

I bought ASAP in hour one when this was announced a month ago.

What I really hope accept all other items listed by others is an engine revamp which makes this MMO work as an MMO.
Its been talked since about a year I hope this expansion brings it on.

Looks good, can't wait to my early access. Hope that Makeb will be the first world on which all codex entries actually work.
