Bioware details Stars Wars: the Old Republic Shadow of Revan

Bioware has set a release date and unveiled a few new pre-order details for the next expansion in SWTOR, allowing fans to Pre-Order by November 2 to secure early access and the exclusive grand statue of Revan.

The company teased the return of Revan, one of the galaxy’s most revered characters, in the events leading up to the latest story-driven adventure from Star Wars: The Old Republic. Now we know that the brand-new digital expansion, Shadow of Revan, will be coming December 9, 2014.

Shadow of Revan offers five new levels of story-driven missions, an increased level cap of 60, new worlds to explore, high-level multiplayer Flashpoints and Operations to join with friends in dynamic challenges and much more.

In the Shadow of Revan, a long-hidden sect of extremists has emerged from the ongoing war between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. This group is led by Revan, the former hero of the Jedi Civil War. These fanatical “Revanites” are gathering an army with an apocalyptic plan that will leave the Republic and the Empire in ashes. Players will prepare to face Revan and adventure alongside a host of intriguing characters, including Theron Shan, Lana Beniko, and Jakarro the Wookiee.
