Default Knights of the Old Republic Remake

The 2003 Knights of the Old Republic is getting a fan-remake using the Unreal 4 Engine.
Here's the link, it'll be free as long as you own the original: KOTOR | Apeiron

As cool as I think this is, I doubt it will get finished. Just like 99% of remakes.

There needs to be a proper modding platform for these to succeed. See the Homeworld -> Star Wars total conversion mods and others like the Fallout: Project Brazil total conversion. They should have picked an easily-modifiable game rather than building from the ground up IMO.

I don't think this will be completed. However, if it does, it would be an INSTANT grab for me!

same here for me, i loved the original game and would definitely play it again with better graphics. you don't even have to change the audio for me. audio was good enough in the original.

That's something they said they would be re-using, hence the requirement of legally owning the game itself.

Definitely worth revisiting if they can pull it off. That was one of few SW games in the last long while that I really enjoyed. Good luck to them. Thanks for pointing it out Arinoth!

This would be absolutely amazing if it actually gets finished, but I really doubt that it will ever get done.
