How much do the SWTOR Expansions cost?

I see this question come up a lot for new and returning players who have not played in a while. Most players know that Star Wars: The Old Republic has added multiple expansions, but most people don’t know how much they cost. In the past, each expansion was sold individually – and since there’s four expansions at the time of making this video, if you had to buy them individually they would cost about $100 plus the cost of subscribing… ouch!

Luckily, the developers of the game have changed their business model, and you no longer have to buy each expansion individually. As of 2020, the first two expansions are free to all players. To unlock the other three expansions, all you have to do is subscribe once, and you will unlock all current and past expansions. So let’s say you are a free-to-play player who is getting near the end of the second expansion and you want to play the other expansions, or you are a returning player who hasn’t played since launch: you’ll only need to subscribe once for about $15 and you will automatically unlock all three later expansions permanently. Nice! Even if you unsubscribe the next month, you’ll lose some of the subscriber perks, but you’ll retain access to the expansion stories you unlocked and the ability to level to max-level on all your current and future characters. This is why it’s highly recommended to to subscribe for at least one month if you plan on playing the expansions. It does not matter which method you use to subscribe – you can choose the re-occurring subscription or non-reoccurring subscription on, a physical game time card, the deal from or a digital game time code from or other video game retailer.

Just to repeat myself – if you subscribe once, you will unlock all current and past expansions including Rise of the Hutt Cartel (free), Shadow of Revan (free), Knights of the Fallen Empire, and Knights of the Eternal Throne, and be able to level from level 1 to the current max-level of level 75, even if you unsubscribe the next month.
