Knights of the Outdated Republic remake rumoured once more
As soon as once more, lips are flapping with rumours of a Knights Of The Outdated Republic remake. Nobody has formally introduced they’re redoing the BioWare RPG set years earlier than Star Trek, however rumours have gone spherical for just a few years, usually with Aspyr Media hooked up because the builders. Effectively, those self same rumours have come again spherical once more. KOTOR is among the few BioWare video games I have not performed (DS9 was extra my bag), so I’ve to ask: would you continue to suggest it to me immediately? Or inform me in case you’re clamouring for a KOTOR 3 as a substitute?
The most recent spherical of whispers does not add a lot to earlier KOTOR remake rumours. Bloomberg’s Jascon Schreier, a frequent rumourman, advised the MinnMaxShow that sure, it is actual. Our company siblings at Eurogamer piped as much as say they, like earlier rumours, have additionally heard Aspyr are doing it. Whereas Aspyr have principally achieved ports earlier than (together with KOTOR for Mac and pocket telephones), they did remaster Indigo Prophecy are making video games themselves these days. Individuals poking on LinkedIn discovered some former BioWare people are at Aspyr now too. However total, eh, till something is made official, that is solely chatter. So let’s chat.
I do know KOTOR is remembered fondly. I undoubtedly have been advised all about that one murderbot by individuals in pubs who have been gesticulating wildly. However what I’ve seen of KOTOR seemed nicely 2003, within the sense of ‘dated’ relatively than ‘traditional’. This might change relying on whether or not this hypothetical sport is extra on the ‘remaster’ or ‘remake’ finish of the spectrum, I suppose. If it is only a wee little bit of polish, would you continue to suggest I’ve a crack?
An earlier hearsay claimed this undertaking was a hybrid remake doodad which took components of each KOTOR video games and introduced them into the present Star Wars canon. That may be further bizarre. Previous a sure diploma of remastering, I’d surprise why efforts would not simply go into making a brand new sport as a substitute. However I suppose if a brand new sport have been strictly off the desk for no matter cause, that is likely to be as a lot as you might push the idea of a remake-o-master? Bizarre. Are nostalgic achings that sturdy? Inform me.
Inform me I can purchase and play it proper now, in case you suppose I ought to. Inform me in order for you a remaster or remake or sequel or what. Inform me how gutting it’s that Lucasfilm killed that fan remake. Inform me about completely satisfied recollections in case you’re completely satisfied to let recollections be recollections. Inform me all of it.
