Many SWTOR players were fans of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and if you’re missing the game, there is now a new, fun option for you. One of the greatest Star Wars video games ever made is back, 8 years after its release. LucasArts is releasing a combo package called Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Collection,
Now fans can experience the Jedi role playing game from BioWare along with the Obsidian-developed sequel, both of which set the stage for Star Wars: The Old Republic as we know it today.
Obsidian’s sequel Knights of the Old Republic II—The Sith Lords was well known as being a disappointing letdown to excited fans who waited for it and then got a buggy, basically unplayable game. It had a rushed development and launched with far too many flaws in place. So players, fans and modders set out to fix it the way they felt it should have been from the start. But now, just in time for the re-release of the game, the fan-made fix is here.
PC Gamer reported on Thursday that Sith Lords mod version 1.8, called the Restored Content mod, is complete and ready to go.
The mod fixes the many bugs that came with the original release of the game and it has a fully restored plot (which was desperately needed).
This is just another example of just how far Star Wars fans will go to get great games and excellent content for the games they love.
When developers say to players these days “If you don’t like it, try making your own mods” then they just might get exactly what they ask for. Gamers know more about the games they play than ever before today and more and more fans are getting into game development and mod development themselves. This is just one more great example of the players making a game.
If you are a SWTOR fan and you never played these predecessors, now is your chance! If you did play, tell us what you think of the new upcoming Restored Content mod.
