Star Wars The Old Republic Onslaught Expansion Arriving Sept 2019
BioWare announced the new Star Wars The Old Republic Onslaught expansion this weekend during SWCC 2019. The expansion is bringing new planets, aliens, gear, and more to The Old Republic when it launches in September.

Onslaught’s story “puts you at the center of the reignited war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire,” and you’ll be given the choice of remaining loyal to your faction or sabotaging their war efforts.
The update will also give you access to Onderon – a new planet of “untamed jungles and savage beasts” – and Mek-Sha, “an independent fueling station and boomtown built in the hollows of a mined-out asteroid once controlled by the Hutts” that’s described as a “lawless den of smugglers, pirates, mercenaries, traders, and refugees”.
The expansion is also adding a new type of gear slot called tactical items. They’re described as “build-defining items” that alter your abilities and playstyle, although Bioware didn’t give any specific examples. Onslaught will also add new general item sets that players can obtain via PvP, PvE Galactic Command and crafting.
