Revan’s journey to Star Wars: The Knights of the Old Republic remains, almost two decades later, one of the most famous Star Wars stories out there. Many consider it among the best in BioWare’s catalog, s KOTOR 3 rumors continue to emerge it turns off and on every few months. If not that, then many were hoping for a remake of the first game.
When Star Wars: Remake Knights of the Old Republic published in September last year, those fans applauded. Not much is shown outside of the short CGI clip, as well as confirmation that Aspyr is its developer. However, nothing else has been said since then, and it will probably be some time before that is done. The hype has been going on for a while, but with the recent development of Aspyr, it’s worth examining if it’s really the best hands for the title.
Star Wars: Remake Knights of the Old Republic – Reasons for Concern
Some fans shared concerns about it KOTOR Remake since its first publication, but recent events make it even more worrying. Aspyr started transferring games to the Mac, and over time became known as a transfer developer. It has already released the original IP Stubbs the Zombie and remasters, but ports have always been her bread and butter. He transferred a ton Star Wars games, including recently Released force and KOTOR 2 to replace.
The problem is that none of his latest games are a great port. The first doesn’t translate well to Switch and is something that, perhaps, the world didn’t need, but KOTOR 2 is another story. It translates well to Switch when it works, but Knights of the Old Republic 2 there are tons of bugs, including one big game. It was released in unsurpassed condition, so this is not exactly a vote of confidence.
Besides, Aspyr never did anything at level a Remake Knights of the Old Republic. It is worth noting if they exist KOTOR Remake combat changes or something similar remains to be seen, but the remake has to do a lot of work from the ground up, rewrite or revise certain elements, all to really be a remake with high details. If nothing else, all this is doubly true for such a high project. It’s bold, and it’s a polygon for Aspyr – that’s a good thing – but it’s also worrying.
History is not necessarily on her side either. If you look at Aspyr’s profile page on Metacritic (as seen above), it’s worth taking a few breaks. Its history has ever resulted in only one game reviewed above the 90+ average, and of the 77 titles on Metacritic, only 13 of its ports have an average higher than 80. Four of them are different ports Civilization 6. Ultimately, his average on Metacritic is 68 – 70s games aren’t bad. AND KOTOR Remake in the 70s it could still be blurred, given the love and attention fans gave to the original.
It should be noted that Aspyr could be the programmer most suited to the material in question — he knows Star Wars games after years of successive exposure — but the pure technical need for such a remake is a big question.
Aspyr could be a gamble worth taking with the KOTOR Remake
With the return of Lucasfilm Games, several new titles have been announced in the cacophony of gaming studios and it is clear that Lucasfilm and Disney are quite picky. House of Mouse trusted only Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment with the undiscovered open world Star Wars RPG after seeing Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, which has been very impressive so far. Fans should wait for his release for a final verdict, but it must also mean that Aspyr had to impress with something more. That’s the point.
Furthermore, Aspyr is bigger and stronger than ever (even if he released a broken Knights of the Old Republic 2 port). Aspyr was acquired by the Embracer Group in February 2021, giving it more resources for the necessary work of a complete remake. It can’t be a coincidence, first of all, that it is KOTOR Remake it was published only a few months after this, and there are still years to go. Early revelations are a double-edged sword, but with this event, Aspyr has to take all the time he needs.
Indeed, Aspyr knows he has something to prove. The KOTOR Remake is the largest project he has ever undertaken and is likely to have a huge impact on his reputation. If Aspyr fails, then fans may never trust him with other Star Wars projects. Companies do this, but that loss of faith would be incredibly damaging. If it succeeds, the Aspyr could be catapulted into a high-quality port and a remake developer similar to Bluepoint Games. He has that possibility. He’s an outsider here, but people love an outsider. This must prove that many advocates are wrong, which can be a good motivator.
There are reasons for concern about Star Wars: Remake Knights of the Old Republic. It’s true. But there are reasons for hope, and until Aspyr shows more about it, cautious optimism may be the best thing to do. Star Wars fans.
Star Wars: Remake Knights of the Old Republic is under development for PC and PS5.
