Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is set around 4,000 years before the events of the original trilogy, introducing a new cast of heroes and villains in an epic struggle for the fate of the galaxy.

First released in 2003, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic still stands today as a landmark achievement, frequently ranked among the greatest video games of all time. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - Remake is new remake of the original revered Star Wars story and blockbuster role-playing game experienced by millions of fans around the world.

A pinnacle of Star Wars Legends storytelling, The game is beloved by fans and has been praised by critics for its deeply engaging narrative, memorable characters, sense of immersion and discovery, and choice-based gameplay.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - Remake is completely rebuilt from the ground up for a new generation of players to experience this legendary tale as never before.

"Aspyr has gone full in to make this the best game that they can make. When we acquired Aspyr, we knew from the start that they would require our assistance. Saber Interactive has tremendous expertise in creating these types of products. We've done it on Halo, on multiple Halo products, so we've been spending a lot of time working with them to bring this title over," commented Saber Interactive Founder and CEO of Matthew Karch.

"We're fully confident that the game is going to be fantastic but it's a massive, massive product and massive products require a lot of effort and a lot of time to make good. And especially when you're talking about a game already old - very old - we've basically had to remake that game from scratch," Karch continued.

Karch also promised we can expect to hear more about the game in the next few months.

Development of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - Remake is led by a newly created team composed of industry veterans at developer and publisher Aspyr, working in close collaboration with Lucasfilm Games.
