Bioware and Lucasfilm continue to churn out more story-driven content today, with Disavowed: The next chapter in Knights of the Fallen Empire — the record breaking expansion to Star Wars: The Old Republic. Here’s an excerpt from the official presser:

"“Disavowed follows the Outlander’s story beyond Anarchy in Paradise and re-introduces a familiar face, Major Jorgan, the commander of the elite soldiers of Havoc Squad. Starting March 10, Jorgan joins the Alliance and battles alongside the Outlander in a deadly mission deep behind enemy lines. It’s up to the Outlander to determine how far Jorgan and his soldiers are allowed to go in the war against the Eternal Empire.”"

If you are a subscriber to Star Wars: The Old Republic, you can join and play at the center of your own Knights of the Fallen Empire story for free during your subscription period. According to the press release, players who subscribe by March 1, will receive two day early access to Disavowed and the HK-55-inspired in-game Helmet which gives players a likeness to the mouthy iconic droid.

As always, new players can jump right into the Knights of the Fallen Empire story as the Outlander, by creating a new Level 60 character. Joining at Level 60 offers an accessible story-driven starting point. This can happen a couple of different ways. By a subscription or through the Cartel Market. Here’s some more info from the press release, about Knights:

"“During its first 2 months, fans of the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion logged more than 900 million minutes fighting the Eternal Empire and made more than 27 million player-driven Light and Dark side choices that shaped their story. The rich storyline will continue to expand this year with the introduction of intriguing new characters and difficult choices as players lead the fight to save the galaxy.”"

Speaking from personal experience, Knights has been an extremely fun expansion to play through. The sheer amount of planets that are now accessible to level 60 and above players is amazing, and the amount of color and armor styles now available to each individual player, make Star Wars: The Old Republic a truly enjoyable and unique experience for any style gamer. Now is the perfect time to give it a try, as you can play it for free on a restrictive level or for a decent subscription basis.
