A remake of the role-playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was announced last week on the PlayStation Showcase 2021. In honor of this, the former co-founder of BioWare shared a slide from the presentation of the remaster of the game, which the publisher refused.
Trent Oster reportedthat he prepared a presentation of a set of remastered two-part KotOR called Reforged Collection. On the slide laid out by the developer, you can see that in the improved version they planned to expand the gameplay and update the graphics. Unfortunately, other details are not easy to see.
Oster congratulated Aspyr Media on the opportunity to remake the first part. Trent Oster himself did not participate in the development of the original KotOR, since he left BioWare back in the 90s. Apparently, Oster suggested that Lucasfilm Games create remasters on behalf of the Beamdog studio, of which he is currently co-founder.
According to producer Ryan Treadwell, Aspyr Media is rebuilding the cult RPG from the ground up “with state-of-the-art technology, features and graphics,” while striving to maintain “the integrity of the story and characters.” The project is in the early stages of development.
