    Tags: Aspyr Media; Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

    Apparently, the rumors are true. In a video interview with the MinMaxxShow, Aspyr is working on a new Knights of the Old Republic. Here's the full video:



    This should be interesting to see. The original was fun at the time and a nice change of pace from straight up generic elves and goblins games, but it certainly didn't age well.

    I somehow fear that they will go full woke like with other offshots of the star wars franchise.

    What are the odds it will use anything as mystifying and esoteric as a d20 ruleset? Expect DA:I with lightsabers.

    Don't be so negative, lads. What if it turns out to be a pretty cool RPG with turn-based combat and nubile Miraluka lady companions?

    The original didn't age well? Haven't played it since it came out and was planning to give it another spin. What aspect of it is dated?

    An example - a year ago I tried to replay New Vegas but I just couldn't. The writing, world and vibe were still great but the combat was p. much unbearable. The old Bethesda technology was barely tolerable at launch but today...I just couldn't. And considering how much combat there is in New Vegas I wrapped it up after like 3 hours or so.

    I remember when Kotor 2 came I expected Kotor 3 to be right around the corner :( I even remember having a dream about it back in the day.
    I am not excited about new game :( I would love new Kotor to be good but the odds are so stacked against it :( It will most likely be a dumbed down mainstream papamole game.

    It was always a bad game, with boring combat, camera & controls that run away max speed from any tacticals, largely meaningless exploration in mushy corridors, and a general lack of interesting mechanics around anything. We all played it because (1) Star Wars, (2) Bio was still supposed to be an RPG company, and (3) there wasn't exactly a lot of other stuff, and it wasn't yet quite conclusive to everybody that the turn to cinematic/3D would be completely irredeemable trash.

    Anyway, guaranteed that this game will be crap mechanically, and that most of the Codex posts will just obsess about whether it has women and what colour hair they have or whatever

    True. But remakes are much more difficult than ports.

    KotOR was kind of total garbage. I can't think of anything I liked about the game. KotOR 2 was still pretty shit mechanically, but the story was solid though. Became thoroughly playable once the modders came around to fix how absolutely broken it was leaving Obsidian's hands.



    What I'm trying to say is that this is going to be a polished turd at best.

    I've only played the sequel, but if memory serves, that wasn't exactly thrilling in the combat department. I'm not understanding why some people are finding it mystifying that nobody cares for that aspect. Either way, I doubt a remake will have better combat. I doubt a mobile studio is going to come up with something that's more involved than damage sponges.

    Let's see, it takes way too long to get the ship and get off the first planet, though KotOR 2's starting/tutorial area is much larger and worse. The combat isn't nearly as good as I remembered. In fact, it's pretty crappy. The interface, being one of the first CRPGs made for both console and PC, is more cumbersome than modern ones. I really didn't like the minigames in KotOR and they were manditory as they were worked in to the storyline.

    That said, I have fairly fond memories of both it and the sequel when they first came out. I just tried playing them recently and they didn't hook me like they did the first time through, but I played both of them through twice when they came out.

    I have no faith in Disney, or this studio. The only thing Disney showed us - is that they are going to milk and butcher SW universe, and spoil and twist everything we liked. They failed miserably with the new “High Republic” era, and now trying to destroy what is left of old canon.


    I hope that this game will never see the light of day, and will drown in development stage. Say what you want about KOTOR, but it does not deserve to be tarnished by the likes of EA, Disney and woke changes that will surely be forced in the game.

    The only thing i want Disney to do with Kotor, is to release Kotor 3 Avellone script. I want to know how it was supposed to end.
