It's almost time for your SWTOR character to get a shave and a haircut.
BioWare producer Cory Butler was on the latest edition of The Old Republic Insider to let fans of the free-to-play sci-fi MMO in on what's coming to SWTOR in April and beyond. April has already been a big month for SWTOR players, with the release of the Hutt Cartel expansion, but I'm pretty sure no one is complaining about too much content coming to the game. The April (and beyond) additions include new offers on the Cartel Market, the Vice Commandant's Contraband pack, new vehicles, and finally a convenient way to customize your character.
Coming later this year, BioWare promises the appearance designer kiosk. This character customization hub will allow players to change their character's eye color, hairstyle, body type, and even their species. Users can even re-color a character's armor sets so they'll be looking as stylish as ever.
Star Wars: The Old Republic is the only massively-multiplayer online game with a Free-to-Play option that puts you at the center of your own story-driven Star Wars saga. Play as a Jedi, a Sith, a Bounty Hunter or as one of many other Star Wars iconic roles and explore an age over three-thousand years before the classic films. Become the hero of your own Star Wars adventure as you choose your path down the Light or Dark side of the Force.
This month, the Cartel Market is offering the badass looking Eradicator's Warsuit which was inspired by the original SWTOR Deceived trailer. The Cartel will also feature the Trooper's armor set from character creation. If you're looking for new gear, pets, and vehicles, then the Vice Commandant's Contraband pack will be right up your alley.
The Vice Commandant's Contraband pack includes ten new gear sets worn by iconic figures from the SWTOR universe, as well as four new mounts, and other rare goods like weapons, minipets, emotes, and color crystals.

Considering BioWare just released The Hutt Cartel expansion which added tons of playable content to the game, these smaller cosmetic updates may be exactly what SWTOR fans are looking for. It will be interesting to see how many people decide to change up their character once the designer kiosk is in play, and to see if the kioski will have any impact on the balance of the game as a whole with folks changing their species left and right.
