New SWTOR: Knights of the Fallen Empire gameplay Trailer

During Gamecon 2015, EA unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic’s upcoming expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire. The video doesn’t show too much about what to expect with the new expansion,  but it seems like it will feature moral decisionmaking. When the expansion goes live, you will be able to continue on your existing character, or you can create a brand new one that starts at level 60, thereby skip all old.  Either way, you’ll take on the role of The Outlander.

A new video that was published by Lady Insanity shows many details about chapter length, unspecified new content, and romance choices that has been revealed from BioWare.
