Star Wars Galaxies: Rage of the Wookiees is the second expansion to Star Wars Galaxies. The expansion features a new planet, Kashyyyk - the Wookiee homeworld.

The expansion is available by direct download. An "all-in-one" package, containing Empire Divided, Jump to Lightspeed, and Rage of the Wookiees is also be available for retail purchase. If you download, you will get the new mount as a reward. If you get the retail copy, you get the new vehicle as a reward. Both items are tradable.

The Rage of the Wookiees (RotW) expansion also includes Jump to Lightspeed, so this is two expansions in one for those who have yet to purchase the space expansion. (Note: Pre-Order began early April 2005 for $24.95 US.)
