Sony Announces Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

The classic RPG is coming to Playstation 5.

Sony kicked off the latest Playstation Showcase with a huge announcement.  Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is coming to Playstation 5.  

Development company Aspyr is handling the creation of the new remaster.  The brief trailer shown during Thursday’s livestream saw protagonist Darth Revan striking his lightsaber with a portentous voiceover.  Rumors of a KotOR remake began swirling in April, with Sony’s latest announcement confirming that the game is in early development.  KotOR is widely regarded as the best Star Wars video game, and ranks as one of the greatest RPGs ever made.

KotOR is based on an earlier Star Wars comic book series set 4,000 years before the formation of the Galactic Republic.  The original Knights of the Old Republic was released in 2003, with a sequel released the following year.  Though the original game was initially released on Xbox, the remake is set to debut through Playstation.  Playability on other consoles will possibly be revealed at a later date.  While Sony and Aspyr have yet to announce a release, fan anticipation is unlikely to decline for this beloved game.  

Sony also formally announced upcoming games Project Eve, Wolverine, and God of War: Ragnarok.  You can check out the trailer for KotOR below, or watch Sony’s full showcase here.
