I hope it'll be like the Demon's Souls remake which was honestly just a really high caliber remaster. At it's core, it's still the same game, just vastly improved graphics and huge environmental overhauls. Same could be done with KotOR. Same exact game, just completely redone assets, environments, character models, etc. Combat would likely get an overhaul as well, and maybe give a voice to Revan (unsure about that though). But it'd be still the same quests, stories, characters, voice lines, etc. I think that'd be a winner formula.

I was a little excited, then I found out they hired Sam Maggs to help rewrite and 'modernize' the story. Look her up if you want some primo cringe.

They’ll screw this up some how, they’re under the iron fist of Kathleen Kennedy and I have made it clear how much I hate that women.

There's a reason it's a "Remake" and not a "Remaster." I guarantee you the story will be changed, and not in a good way. "Yeah but Final Fantasy…" FF isn't owned by a corporation controlled by Twitter, Star Wars is.

I don't think the combat was really turn based. It was more like a MMORPG system where you activated powers that had cool downs. But I think I catch your meaning, though. Actually, under the hood, I think it was turn based, being based on the D&D rules system, like in Baulder's Gate. It was still really clunky, though. Some might even say…maclunkey. 😉

As someone who hasn’t played the original KOTOR (I think I was like 3 or 4 when it did come out) I’m definitely excited! I’d like to play this when it comes out, but I don’t know if I will be able to because I don’t have a PS5 and I doubt PC would include Macs

My FAVORITE part of Kotor was that it was like a Star Wars D&D game. I greatly prefer turn based combat as it's about strategy rather than reflexes. The way they did combat in Kotor was one of the key defining things that made it different from all the other shooters and junk so to me, if it isn't using a d20 style system with turn based combat, it isn't Kotor anymore.

The Author of the Article confirmed that when he said that KOTOR was part of legends storytelling, he meant the original.

Can't say i'm too excited, mainly because all we saw is a render of Revan in the dark, the game won't be coming out in atleast 3-4 years and i've been inmune to hype for a long time now when it comes to gaming.

I do wish the best for the game though, hopefully this Remake is succesful and we also get KOTOR2, which is fantastic aswell and could really use a Remake that restores a lot of the cut content from that game.

Also, the (possibly timed) PS5 exclusivity sucks.

While I’m excited for this remake I’m still waiting for the day we get a game set during the Mandalorian Wars.

Keep the story, bring back as many of the original voice actors as you can, and make the gameplay similar to Fallen Order and i will happily buy a PS5 for this Game exclusively!

Give Revan a voice actor and voice actress for both genders too? That an exceptable change?

I'm not as hopeful as you are I'm afraid. I think that the desire to bring it to a modern audience will involve making changes that will remove what made the game so awesome. Then, when fans don't like it, we'll hear about how hateful we are. Hope you're right. Cheers.

It won't be great dude.
One of the writers has said she didn't like the direction of the origional and it needs to be updated for modern times.
Visually stunning, but that's about it.

I am assuming that instead of the way you had to select individual options for each action and couldn’t button mash, now there will be button mashing. And same sex romance.

11:37 "brought grown men to tears"
I must say that that's an understatement, when I watched that scene I couldn't keep my eyes opens because tears were pouring out my eyes, had to re-watch it to see the details and cried again lol.

As much as I want in my heart of hearts to return to a sleek d20 system, I will accept an action variant. If they do cock it up its very possible I become an international criminal in revenge

At best: We’ll get a Mass Effect-style Action/RPG

At worst: Cash grab that will tank and one that I won’t feel bad waiting to play…if ever

So long as EA and Disney is kept as far as physically possible from this games development it should hopefully work out. Though I think respawn could help make the environments.

I want to be hopeful, but I've become too jaded recently from Games Workshop's stupidity with Warhammer 40,000, on top of the lingering bad taste from the sequel trilogy, that I am expecting this to be mutilated by modern political correctness.
I really hope I'm wrong.

I consider the description that article gave to be about the original game, included in case some people don't know what KOTOR was. It just didn't make that clear, since the wording is present tense instead of past.

One thing I like to just point out is that this will technically be the very first "New" game by Aspyr Media, Since most of their work up to now has been ports, remasters and re-releases (including all the recent flow of old Star wars games being brought to new systems) And so when some rumors appeared that they where going to be the ones in charge of the new KOTOR, I'd had me pretty sceptical, unless it turned out to be more of a remastered, but I guess we will have to wait and see what's comes out of it…

I have concerns, was very excited at the announcement as I have a PS5, , but have since read interviews with the people involved on deconstruction. Sounds like another word for subverting expectations to me and we all know how that went. Then you find out things like Sam Maggs is working on the story and it is bad feelings all round. Remake the graphics, game play, side quests all you like, but do not fuck with the story or those characters.

I don't want the story to change beyond what it takes to fit it into Canon. After all, if this game is cannon, it will have huge implications lore-wise for the Republic, Sith Order, Jedi Order, Mandalorians, Exar Kun, Vitiate, Bastila, Clan Ordo, Infinite Empire, and obviously Revan. If they mess this up, this will be the last straw for many people. Also, I hope they don't change the combat system majorly. Maybe some rebalancing of abilities and changing some of the parts, since the gameplay did have some problems. But the overall d20/ability cooldown hybrid worked really well, and if that's gone than KOTOR isn't KOTOR. I honestly hope this game is well done Canon or a terrible Disney Legends game. Because any other thing could kill Star Wars as we know it. Mandalorian Mindset is the only way out of this mess.

I wouldn't mind a gameplay system similar to that of Fallen Order.
That being said, I only played KotOR II and I really liked the gameplay on it, specially the ability to have our choices influence whether we went the path of the Light or the path of the Darkness.

My biggest fear with this is that they decide to hammer leftist politics into the game and make it "woke". So I'm absolutely NOT pre-ordering it and will wait for the game to come out and be reviewed by people I actually trust. Then I'll get it IF the "modernisation" isn't just "making it prettier but woke".

If the leaks about Which studio where to be the ones making the new old republic we’re true
and have now been confirmed to be Aspire studios.

Then what was also said in those leaks were that the game was to be more of a action RPG like game.
and that supposedly for those wondering it would be canonized within the current Star Wars canon.

but re-made while still having in mind everything that happened throughout all of the sagas to this point.
by means of reestablishing certain things in this game that would make sense later on for whatever future projects they wanted to do.

which would reference back to this new remake And reestablishment of the Old republic Era.

there were multiple YouTuber’s/ media outlets covering these leaks during the last Star Wars celebration when this game was originally leaked to be revealed at but wasn’t until now.

The person re-writing the story is the same 'journalist' from The Mary Sue who claims she was raped while playing GTA Online…because people wouldn't stop doing emotes at her character.

You tell me how authentic they'll stay to the original.

No, this isn't nostalgia talking for me…I really don't like the original.

Also they wanted to originally at least from the leaks establish this game during the original outing of the last sequel trilogy.

but apparently didn’t know how to do it that’s why Luke in ep 8 originally had a red Khyber crystal around his neck.

from an era of “ jedi crusaders” aka this new remake of the old republic.

I’m 52 years old. I started on the Atari 2600 (1980) and progressed up to the Sega Genesis (1992). KOTOR I is the ONLY reason I got back into gaming and why I still game. PLEASE don’t mess this up.
