Bit unclear when it's being released, apparently some of it in July.

is this as part of an expansion or just regular updates?

I know they said there would be no expansions in the first year but it seems odd to increase level cap without a big content push you would get from an expansion.

Don't think they've announced that yet, they said this is all coming in the coming months. I'm assuming it will be multiple patches.

Couple more details:

Ranked Warzones in 1.3
1.3 coming to the PTS tomorrow, can start downloading it now. Update: Confirmed - "Yep. The Public Test Server will be getting Game Update 1.3 tomorrow. Start downloading and patching now! bit.ly/LxsI2v #swtor"
New Operation called Terror From Beyond takes place on Asation, Dread Masters opened a Hypergate causing massive creatures to come through
Transfers coming in next few weeks
Enhancing & revamping nightmare mode operations, entirely new mechanics and content
New Heroic quest area on Belsavis
New 8v8 Warzone called Ancient Hypergates takes place on Celine
New Companion for all classes HK-51, unlocked via new missions, voice actor same as HK-47, upgraded and enhaced from its previous model
New planet Makeb, hours of content for both factions, has come under the control of the Hutt Cartel in preparation for Hutt rule throughout the galaxy
Raising level cap which means new abilities
Free trial up to level 15 coming in July
Belsavis heroic area is the behind closed doors demo, involves the Dread Masters unleashing horrors on the lowest levels of the prison, players will take on prisoners to combat the Dread Masters' plan, available to both Republic and Empire factions

Shakycam video of the Belsavis stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... WqiKvyHrnE

What's weird is that the Cathar race was in the original announcement and video but all references to it have since been removed and it wasn't mentioned in this session either.

Preview of the balance changes in 1.3, looks like a lot of changes for tanks. Increased threat generation, more aoe threat abilities and most of their AoE is now 'smart' and wont break stuns and the like.
