Explore Hutta (Latest screen shots look pretty damn good)

We’re thrilled to announce the next playable planet in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, the Hutt homeworld known in The Old Republic timeframe as Hutta. Nowhere in Star Wars™ lore has Hutta been so richly realized, and players will be able to explore the first true interactive realization of the “Glorious Jewel”.



Read more about Hutta
and its rich history including the long standing tension between the rebellious Evocii natives and the greedy, power-hungry Hutt Empire.




View the concepts of Hutta’s harsh, polluted environments and see how the development team brought Hutta to life in these screenshots .

Stay tuned to the Star Wars: The Old Republic website for the latest information.

In Huttese, the name translates into “Glorious Jewel”, and the planet more commonly called Nal Hutta is considered a paradise to the gluttonous tastes of the Hutts. To anyone else, though, the planet is a living nightmare—a disgusting and dangerous place to visit, and an unthinkable place to live. Current Underworld slang has shortened the name to a simple ‘Hutta’—a place where more civilized people threaten to send their children if they misbehave.

Before the creation of the Republic, Hutta was controlled by the native Evocii, a relatively primitive race who made the mistake of engaging in extensive business deals with the Hutts, ignoring rumors of their legendary greed. Centuries later, the Evocii realized their mistake too late—their entire civilization was mortgaged. When the Hutts’ home-world of Varl later became polluted and uninhabitable, the Hutts collected on the Evocii’s debts, becoming rulers of the planet.

In the thousands of years since, the Hutts have subjugated the Evocii—they live in slavery and squalor while the Hutts’ insatiable pursuit wealth pollutes the planet. Hutta has become the breeding grounds for the powerful Hutt families who control competing crime cartels that operate across the galaxy. Though petty vendettas keep them in constant conflict with one another, the Hutts have remained neutral in the long-running war between the Republic and the Sith Empire, keeping their world exactly as they like it.

The Hutts are the lords of Hutta’s demented society, and all other races, even official foreign emissaries, are seen as expendable fodder in the Hutts’ bloated, wormlike eyes. Even the most infamous bounty hunters are hesitant to venture on the Hutts’ home-turf, and no sane person would ever come to Hutta willingly without the most crucial need.

    I see my Smuggler having many adventures out of that cantina.

    I felt the exact same way.  The more and more screenshots that come out though give a really good insight into the environment.

    I really like the depiction of Hutta.  It fits perfectly with the Hutts - sleazy, flashy casinos inside while outside is a industrial toxic wasteland.      Those screenshots of the outside zones make you feel like taking a shower.  And I'm sure there will be things going on in those catinas that will make even a Sith want to take a shower! :) 

    I can't wait to see more of the worlds we'll get to visit in this game!

    I see Bounty Hunter's getting a lot of missions out of there also.

    Yup, probably on those unsuspecting Smugglers

    I... always thought it was always known as Nal Hutta but whatever. Looks good. I'm hoping for some Nar Shadda love too.

    The one that got my attention the most was the house.  Is this a hint of player housing at launch?
