Ten Years Later, Star Wars KOTOR II Gets An Official Update
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic IIâ€”the best KOTORâ€”just got a huge update, for some reason.
The update just dropped on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux. Itâ€™s a doozyâ€”at least, for a game thatâ€™s more than ten years old.
For those not in the know, the Restored Content Mod is a years-spanning project that aims to return the game to its proper formâ€”rather than the sloppy, stitched together version that was originally released due to publisher pressure and time constraints. The mod adds a handful of endings and the infamous HK Factoryâ€”among many other thingsâ€”and fixes hundreds of bugs. Itâ€™s a must-download, and itâ€™s now easy to access on KOTOR IIâ€™s Steam Workshop.New features include:
- 37 achievements to be earned through gameplay
Steam Cloud saves
Native widescreen resolution support
Resolution support up to 4K and 5K
Support for controllers, including Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, and Playstation 4, along with several others (check the system requirements for details)
Steam Workshop support! We proudly worked with the Restored Content Mod Team to have their famous TSLRCM up on launch day
Oh... and we added a â€œForce Speed Effectsâ€ option in the menu
The update comes as a surprise, given that KOTOR II hasnâ€™t been updated in ages. I reached out to Aspyr Mediaâ€”who handled the updateâ€”to find out why this happened now, but as of press time theyâ€™d yet to respond. I, however, donâ€™t plan on looking a gift bantha in the mouth, because bantha mouths are gross. Also because KOTOR II is an amazing RPG, and now itâ€™s better than ever. Think youâ€™ll dive back in?
All manner of fun stuff!
