Star Wars KOTOR 2 Get’s Major Update Eleven Years After Release


Updates and patches aren’t infrequent in the modern day, but, in what might be an unprecedented move, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II has received a substantial update that brings with it a wealth of improvements. Obsidian Entertainment’s much loved RPG initially released in December of 2004 for PC and Xbox, before being re-released on Steam in 2012.

Now, a new update brings a host of new features, including:

  • Native widescreen resolution
  • Support for 4K and 5K
  • Controller support for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3 controllers
  • Mod support via the Steam Workshop
  • New Steam achievements and cloud saves
  • Release for OS X and Linux

The new update ensures Knights of the Old Republic 2 will be the prettiest its ever been, and mod support means fans can download the highly recommended Restored Content Modification mod. Due to a rushed release, chunks of KOTOR II were lost and bugs were more prominent than one would hope; the Restored Content Modification mod restores the cut content and ensures a smoother experience overall.

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II is available now on Steam and the App Store for $10/£7, with a 25% discount until July 28th.
