Star Wars fans can finally return to the Old Republic. On Tuesday, developer Aspyr Media announced the release of a new updated version of the cult 2004 RPG. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: Les Seigneurs Sith for iPhone, iPad and Android.
Originally developed by Obsidian Entertainment, The Sith Lords follows the story of a lone Jedi exile who must team up with various people across the galaxy in order to thwart a Sith plot to destroy the Jedi Order forever. Of course, as with the original Knights of the Old Republic, you can accomplish this by embracing the light or dark side of the Force, with key decisions throughout your journey affecting both the exile and the story of the game itself.
According to Aspyr, this new version of Knights of the Old Republic 2 has been specially optimized for mobile devices. Since the game’s original release, modders have worked to release updates and restore content Obsidian left on the cutting room floor. Unfortunately, the press release does not mention any of this content and it is unlikely that it will be released on mobile devices.
Knights of the Old Republic 2 will be available on mobile devices through the App Store or Google Play on December 18 for $ 14.99.
