From today, players who pre-order the expansion will receive two in-game items and a title
The Dr. Oggurobb Hutt Holostatue
Train under the illustrious Hutt scientist Dr. Oggurobb with this portable training device that he created in his own image.
"Scourge of the Hutts" Title
Republic and Imperial forces that adorn this title will be feared and revered across the galaxy.
The Makrin Seedling Mini-Pet
Get your very own Makrin Creeper to follow you around and "creep" out your enemies! Possessing bark-like skin and grass-like nerve-rich tissues that blend in perfectly with Makeb’s environment, the Makrin Creeper has a distinguishing and eerie look!
This is in addition to those who pre-ordered before Jan 7th for the Early Access.
This very well may sway those who were on the fence about pre-ordering, especially people like me, who are into collecting the pets and titles. Also if you factor in the 9.99(US) pre-order price for subscribers this is shaping up to be a pretty good deal.
So, to recap, Rise of the Hutt Cartel now is confirmed to have:
- 5 level cap increase
- A new Planet, Makeb
- Chapter 4 stories
- Bonuses for pre-orders
There is also the possibility that some Same Gender Romance options will be in place when RoTHC launches.
If you factor in all the changes that are coming with patch 1.7, SWToR is really shaping up nicely and getting better and better with each iteration.
