Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion will finally deliver long-awaited same-sex romance options, a BioWare mainstay sadly missing from the MMORPG at launch. But as PCGamesN points out in a biting editorial, these new romance options will only be available on a single planet, Makeb, and you’ll have to be high level and fork out some cash in order to access it. Ouch. The expansion is due in northern spring.

SWTOR executive producer Jeff Hickman has revealed his latest State of the Game report that same-gender romance between players and NPCs on Makeb will be added to the MMO with the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion, slated for spring. More SGR options will be added “in the future.” The expansion also adds several new systems, five new levels, a large new planet, new storylines, new skills and new abilities. Hickman also noted that the game has seen an increase in player numbers since going free-to-play, and changes to “a special PvP area,” are slated for Update 1.7, and more endgame content and the ability to copy characters to the test server are all on the way.
