Knights of the Old Republic II Get updated 10 Years after Launch – again

 

Recently Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II was given a major update, over 10 years after the games original launch, gaining controller support, widescreen resolution support, Steam cloud saves, full Steam Workshop Mod support and more. 

Now the game has received a new update, adding 20 new Steam achievements and fixes several game bugs and issues on the Mac, Linux and Windows PC versions. 

 

       Aspyr in partnership with Disney Interactive and LucasArts is proud to announce STAR WARS Knights of the Old Republicâ„¢ II – The Sith Lordsâ„¢ is now available on Mac and Linux, along with a massive update to all 3 platforms.

As a big Star Wars fan this recent set of updates have made me very excited, as I firstly had never played KOTOR II before the last update and secondly that this game, which is considered by many as a classic, was brought up to date with wide resolution support and Steam Workshop mods for free. 

Patching a game to this extent over 10 years after launch is great to see. With such a large update it would be easier to describe this patch as a full on HD Remaster, as this game has no doubt has had more effort put into it than recent HD remasters like the Prototype collection.
