Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

  • Released on May 30, 2013
  • By BioWare for PC, Xbox, iPad

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a role-playing game developed by BioWare, the studio behind the well-received Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights series of CRPGs. Knights of the Old Republic is set over 4,000 years before the events of Lucasfilm's 1999 sci-fi motion picture Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, during a time when the Jedi Order were locked in desperate struggle against their evil counterparts, the Sith led by Darth Malak.

The player character emerges amidst this conflict and will learn the ways of the Jedi (and possibly more about their own identity) in order to challenge this threat, and ultimately determine how it will end. Players create and customize their own character, then choose one of three character classes (and later three Jedi subclasses) to develop over the course of the game. Character development also factors in how players interact with the myriad NPCs they meet across the galaxy, ultimately determining their alignment with either the "light" side of the Force or the "dark" side.

Combat is based on the the discreet round system previously leveraged in the Baldur's Gate games, where all combatants act based on their own rounds that unfold simultaneously in real-time; players have the option of allowing the game to pause when a party member is ready to accept a command for the next round. The battle and character development mechanics are based on the the d20 tabletop role-playing game system featured in Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Roleplaying Game.
