Star Wars™: KOTOR Remake!
At the PlayStation Showcase 2021, held on September 9, Lucasfilm Games announced the teaser trailer for their upcoming game Star Wars™: Knights of the Old Republic Remake.
Fans were absolutely delighted with the announcement, praising the game that they know and love. Though this game was originally a part of the Legends continuity, fans are hopeful that some of their favorite characters, like Revan™ and Malak™, will be officially recognized as Canon.
The trailer opens with the gentle voice of a mysterious woman. The voice says, “Peace is a lie. That is what the Sith believe. They promise power. Now they wield it. We face the greatest Sith in generations. They must be stopped.” A red lightsaber ignites in the distance illuminating the masked face of Darth Revan.
StarWars.com describes the original game as follows:
It is four thousand years before the Galactic Empire and hundreds of Jedi Knights have fallen in battle against the ruthless Sith. You are the last hope of the Jedi Order. Can you master the awesome power of the Force on your quest to save the Republic? Or will you fall to the lure of the dark side? Hero or villain, savior or conqueror… you alone will determine the destiny of the entire galaxy! Features An epic Star Wars role-playing experience with unique characters, creatures, vehicles and planets. Learn to use the Force with over 40 different powers, plus build your own Lightsaber. Adventure through iconic Star Wars locations, including Tatooine™ and the Wookiee™ homeworld of Kashyyyk™. Choose your party from nine customizable characters, including Twi’leks™, Droids™ and Wookiees™. Travel to seven enormous worlds in your own starship, the Ebon Hawk™.
It’s unclear if this game will follow the exact the same story and feature the exact same systems, but we can be certain the ever-intriguing tale of Darth Revan, a fan favorite Sith, will appear. In an interview on StarWars.com, Lucasfilm Games’ Orion Kellogg and Aspyr’s Ryan Treadwell talked about the game. They said, “Revan’s is a heroic tale of succumbing to the dark side,” says Treadwell. “It is a deep and impactful story that has a ton of depth and interest.” (Indeed, Hasbro’s Revan Force FX Elite Lightsaber sits behind Treadwell on a credenza in his home, proudly on display during the Zoom call for this interview.)
“Plus, Revan looks really cool,” adds Kellogg. “We can’t forget that.”
Star Wars™: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is currently in early developmental stages, and it has no release date at this time.
