So, this leaked from a company that does market research, and I'm in the process of sorting it out for a PC Gamer article, but if you want to have a look through the raw data, here it is:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bw6sp6d ... edit?pli=1

Take everything with a grain of salt, these are all just suggested features and price points that EA is trying to collect consumer info about. But the fact that they appear here means they are at least on the drawing board.

I would say this seems like far too little content for an expansion. It seems to me like it's more on par with a content patch, except for the increase in level.

It seems very simple. They're trying to determine how much people are willing to pay and for what. Look at each page:

* Page 1 has a list of features, PLUS 90 days of game time for $10. The last part alone is worth $45 otherwise.

* Page 2 is almost completely gutted from page 1, with no extra game time. $30

* Pages 3 and 4 add stuff from 1 back into 2, and mess with the cost.

* The rest of the pages give you choices between 3 packages and ask you which you'd go for.

I doubt any of the info is remotely close to what an actual expansion would look like. I mean, really? Ewoks? It's probably just generic marketing text to give a general idea of what an expansion would look like.

They said it was too speculative, but based on today's conference it was totally legit. :P

Interesting. And Perrian yes they did create a completely new planet.

I like the way stuff is layed out on the first page. And the later pages are too expensive for what you would get.

Of all the options, I am only really interested in the game time, and only $20 or less for at least 60 days, since a higher price would mean paying more for game time than any of the current subscription options or the 2 month prepay cards. The increase in level cap seems paltry to me, but since I've played relatively little in MMOs, 1-5 levels may be a bigger value than I realize.

[joke] I might be willing to pay more for a package that means I never see a monkey lizard. IMO, Crumb is almost as annoying as Jar-Jar[/joke]

Levelling takes longer the higher you go.
