Star Wars: The Old Republic is based off the games "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic." SWTOR is set after the events of KOTR, but there is a lot of fun and exciting gameplay and story in both KOTR I & II, including who is Revan and why does everyone care so dang much. It seems that Disney Interactive & LucasArts surprised the entire Star Wars gaming community with a new update to KOTR II that includes 4k support, achievements, and even modern controller support. Mod support is even in, with the Sith Lords Restored Content Mod being released at the same time the patch has come.

This might be a fun pastime with SWTOR's patch 3.3. delayed to go back to KOTR II, especially with the restored content mod and other tweaks available these days to make the game boss.

Aspyr in partnership with Disney Interactive and LucasArts is proud to announce STAR WARS™ Knights of the Old Republic™ II - The Sith Lords™ is now available on Mac and LInux, along with a massive update to all 3 platforms.

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 "Force Speed Effects" option in the menu ;)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II hovers below the $10 mark usually and this patch is available for the Steam version. Disc owners of the original game, I'm unsure if there is a way to patch your game up, but for what's about the price of a combo meal at your local fast food joint, it might be worth it to hand out your cash to Valve to get the game to be with you - forever.

You can read about the update and purchase the game over on Steam.
