BioWare has unveiled Onslaught, the next expansion for its free-to-play MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic.

“War between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire blazes across the galaxy,” the developer explains. “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.”

The expansion will see players heading to Onderon, a planet of untamed jungles and savage beasts, and Mek-Sha, an independent fueling station built in the hollows of a mined-out asteroid that was once controlled by the Hutts.

In addition, players will be getting a new Flashpoint set on the war-torn world of Corellia, and a new Operation that takes place on Dxun, Onderon’s largest moon.

Other changes include an increase in the level cap, new abilities, and a brand-new type of gear slot called “Tactical Items.” These new items can be acquired in multiple ways and let players directly alter their abilities

Onslaught is scheduled to release in September and will be free for all subscribers.
