Announced as part of the PlayStation Showcase, classic RPG Knights of the Old Republic is getting a remake. Aspyr Media and Sony have joined forced with Lucasfilm Games to bring back this much-loved Star Wars game. For its time, Knights of the Old Republic was truly an achievement for RPGs, offering a diverse and ambitious game that now holds a special place in the hearts of many gamers.
According to a PlayStation blog post by Ryan Treadwell, Lead Producer at Aspyr Media, the developers will be "rebuilding it from the ground up with the latest tech to match the groundbreaking standard of innovation established by the original, all while staying true to its revered story."
Having been revealed at the PlayStation Showcase, many fans have been wondering if the game is going to be a PS5 exclusive.
Will Knights of the Old Republic Remake be a PS5 Exclusive?
As it stands, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake will be a timed exclusive, on PS5 and PC. It will likely release on other consoles at a later date, but for now, no exact dates have been given.
Not much was revealed during the announcement trailer. It's likely the game is still quite a way off, so players will have to wait a bit longer before we see any gameplay. RPGs are certainly a big undertaking, and one as well-loved and rich as Knights of the Old Republic will certainly need to be handled with care. Here's hoping we'll see some more updates in the not too distant future.
