    Coming first to PlayStation 5 and PC, then possibly to Xbox Series X/S.

    About damn time. Funny that it’s a PS exclusive first this time around.

    So... is this a proper remake or it a remake like FF7 where it's actually a sequel?

    Should have used the purple saber for attention/recognition.

    PS5 and PC way I hear it, Xbox will be like 6 months after. Which depending on how good a state the game is on launch could be to Xbox's benefit.

    But I'm on board. I've always wanted to play a version of this that didn't look and play kind of crap. I bought the originals off GoG, and frankly they don't play very well; the lack of a HD coat of paint is not a deal breaker but playing like jank is. So all this needs to do is give the visuals that new coat of paint AND a few control concessions to modernity and we're aces.

    HK-47. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherf***er in the room, accept no substitutes.

    So apparently they've hired Sam Maggs to re-write KOTOR, a sexist who constantly bitches about (specifically male) Star Wars fans, antagonizes the fanbase and admits to not even liking the original KOTOR.

    Because of course they did.

    Well shit. And here I thought they'd keep the story exactly the same as it was in the original. It's a pity 'cause I thought that teaser was sick.

    I was skeptical when I came into the thread, but this just has me flat out uninterested now. If this is seriously true talk about sabotaging things in a major way.

    Yeah why would anyone have an issue with male SW fans? It's a real mystery.

    I love the way you use words like "bitch" and yet seem to think there's no reason to think Star Wars fans have a misogyny problem.

    Whew, those last two replies gave me hope not everyone is a sexiest piece of shit.

    Can’t wait for this, hope it comes to Xbox sooner than later so everyone can enjoy it. Long, exciting wait drinking in every piece of information that comes out over the next few years. I’m already hoping they remake the second one as well and can add what was removed and make it a full experience.

    Not even a page and pathetic internet drama already, new Star Wars threads still going as expected.

    Will need to see more before I get on the hype train since it's Aspyr's first big project, but they've at least got history with the game and not being in the hands of a AAA publisher is an upside as far as I am concerned.

    The IP is good, and in the intervening years, there's been a lot of work in gameplay/camera/graphics that could make this a winner.

    Wonder if there’s a chance in hell this ever gets released on Switch.

    Will be interesting to see what they build on. KOTOR isn't a particularly big game by WRPG standards so they can put allot of effort into combat design and encounters without breaking the bank or overwhelming themselves, which is what I hope they priorities instead of blowing all the budget on graphics or padding the game out with open world shit.

    I wouldn't consider that likely unless they announce a PS4 version as well. Even if the game isn't particularly fancy in the technical department, you still have to take into account the limitations of the last gen systems when designing and building it.
