Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic 2 is coming to phones
Star Wars fans can finally return to the Old Republic. On Tuesday, developer Aspyr Media announced that it’s releasing a newly updated version of the 2004 cult-classic RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Originally developed by Obsidian Entertainment, The Sith Lords follows the story of a lone Jedi Exile who has to team up with various people throughout the galaxy in order to thwart a Sith plot intent on destroying the Jedi order forever. Of course, as with the original Knights of the Old Republic, you can accomplish this either by embracing the light or dark side of the Force, with key decisions along your journey affecting both the exile and the story of the game itself.
According to Aspyr, this new version of Knights of the Old Republic 2 has been specifically optimized for mobile devices. Since the game’s original release, modders have worked to release updates and restore content that Obsidian left on the cutting room floor. Sadly there’s no mention in the press release of any of this content and it’s unlikely it will make it to mobile devices.
Knights of the Old Republic 2 will be available on mobile devices through the App Store or Google Play on Dec. 18 for $14.99.
