Darth Revan Returns In Newest The Old Republic Expansion

Dartn Revan, the main character in the excellent Knights of the Old Republic games from BioWare, is making his way back into the universe in Star Wars: The Old Republic’s latest expansion Shadow of Revan. In addition to bringing the iconic character to the MMO, Shadow of Revan adds a ton of content to the free-to-play title.

The biggest news is obviously the return of Revan, one of the most popular characters from the extended fiction of Star Wars (which has recently been declared as non-canon). In the story-driven content on the expansion, Revan returns to lead a group of extremists dubbed “Revanites” to add their own wrinkle to the ongoing war between the Galactic Empire and the Republic. You can expect five new levels of story content that delves into this conflict, but that isn’t all the expansion brings with it.

High-end players can rejoice, as the level cap is being bumped up to 60 in Shadow of Revan, as well a number of new worlds to explore. Level capped players should enjoy the new Flashpoint and Operations multiplayer missions that offer dynamic challenges to those seeking rewards beyond what the normal content offers. Pre-order customers can also receive a large experience boost that will allow you to level up to 55 at a 12x rate, which will be a boon to old players wishing to start a new alt.

Speaking of pre-order bonuses, Shadow of Revan offers a lot of them, seperated into tiers based on when you buy them. Check it out and see if any of these are for you:
