Star Wars: The Old Republic is set to release two new expansion packs in 2014, per Senior Producer Bruce Maclean, in hopes to attract more players and draw former players back to the universe.


The game was initially released in 2011 and changed over to a free-to-play model with premium content and items available via in-game purchases. Since the change, the game has introduced new PvP content.
