Star Wars: KOTOR, known in Spain as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, is one of those games that still remains in the hearts of gamers around the world. The title, developed by BioWare in the early 2000s, invited players to dive into an adventure in a distant galaxy, led by LucasArts. While rumors of its supposed remake emerge earlier this year, a fan has decided to get down to business and imagine what this title would look like made in Unreal Engine 5. And this is the result:
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic in Unreal Engine 5
The YouTube channel Unreal Cinema has been in charge of sharing the videos that we have left you on these lines. The goal is to create a kind of “miniseries” centered on Star Wars: KOTOR benefiting from the benefits of Unreal Engine 5, and those two videos are the first two steps in this project. The series is not yet completed, so probably in the future I will share more images of this graphic jump for the legendary role-playing game.
While the first video recreates the game’s opening sequence / cinematic, the second video takes us directly to the ancient ruins of Dantooine. To create these cinematics, Unreal Cinema used Megascans and a couple of custom resources. The end result is amazing, and it’s a good way to imagine What would a modern remastering of this Star War game look like?s.
The rumors of the Star Wars KOTOR Remake
Supposedly this project is in charge of the development study Aspyr. Among the latest information related to the project, it has been indicated that the new version would change the turn-based combat system for one more similar to that of an action RPG. This development studio has previously worked on re-releases of Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, the mobile versions of the DIRTY and the recent Star Wars: Republic Commando. Rumors have previously indicated that this KOTOR will bring together elements from the two original installments. You can know more details in our article.
