Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 Official Update

It incorporated support for controllers, widescreen display support, 5K resolution and Steam Cloud saves. Then on October 18th, it happened again.

Thank you all for your support for this great game we all love!

Much of this update was dedicated to bug fixes and new achievements but it’s still pretty exciting to see them updating this game again. Fans are super happy to see the game being kept alive after 10 years. KOTOR2 was developed by Obsidian and published by LucasArts when it first released but the current Steam release was done in 2012 and is a fantastic game for only $10. It’s being ran by Aspyr and they are doing an awesome job of it, as you can tell from the recent updates.

Now if only we could get this for KOTOR 1
