We’re in Cologne, Germany and we visited the SWTOR booth, where we found level 20 characters fighting it out in a new warzone. The objective of the warzone is to activate the two pylons which then start a countdown before they explode. To save yourself from the explosion all players must go to the middle room where they fight it out until the explosion is over. All the while each kill brings you closer to activating a special end event that will defeat the losing team for good. This last special effect is still not present in the game but we can now show you footage of how the warzone is played in this exclusive video in all its glorious HD quality (and people passing by)

During the pre-E3 press conference in Los Angeles, dr. Ray Muzyka announced the new content we will be seing in The Old Republic this year. It was not mentioned whether this will be a paid expansion or a patch update, but from the rumors it seems this will be given to players for free (unverified). The amount of new stuff certainly warrants for the patch to be called an expansion because every aspect of the game will have something new added to it. Here are the most important things announced along with the content trailer.
- New companion – HK-51 (we had him on our companions page since December)
- New playable race – Cathar
- New level cap
- New planet – Makeb
- New warzone – Ancient Hypergates
- New Operation – Terror From Beyond
- New Space Mission – Space Station Assault
- New abilities
- New version of Nightmare difficulty mode.
- Free to play up to level 15 starting this July
