The Old Republic devs introduce Rise of the Hutt Cartel's new planet Makeb

BioWare Austin has released a video with a pair of Star Wars: The Old Republic developers walking viewers through the planet Makeb, the primary location of the game's first major expansion pack, Rise of the Hutt Cartel.

Makeb is a planet rich in resources, and those resources are scarce in the ongoing war between Republic and Empire. The sluglike, oft-criminal Hutts are eyeing Makeb themselves, meaning that the Empire and the Republic must send their best heroes and agents (read: the player) to try and secure some of Makeb's precious resources to fuel the war machine.

Rise of the Hutt Cartel is slated for release sometime this spring.
