Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Remake Coming To PS5

Return To A Classic

Knights of the Old

Sony kicked off their PlayStation Showcase today with a major announcement for Star Wars fans. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is receiving a remake for PS5.

Developed by Aspyr games, who handled the current generation ports of Star Wars Republic Commando and the Jedi Knight games, we’re still working with limited information. Sony did reveal that the game is a PS5 console exclusive at launch. The “console exclusive” label likely means it will at least come to PC as well. The at launch part should ease the minds of Xbox fans. While they may have to wait a bit, it will likely show up eventually.

This is a full remake from the ground up. The development team promised that the game will feature almost everything from the original title so while a few things may change, this should be a fairly faithful remake.

We’ll have more details for you on the Knights Of the Old Republic remake when they’re available. It is apparently early in development but just the fact that they’re far enough along to be confident announcing it says a lot. For now, you can check out the first teaser for this remake below.

Andrew has been writing about video games for nearly twenty years, contributing to publications such as DarkStation, Games Are Fun, and the E-mpire Ltd. network. He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
