Revealed during last night’s exciting PlayStation showcase, the Aspyr-developed remake was made to look an awful lot like a PlayStation 5 exclusive in the all-too brief trailer. Obviously this is great for anyone who actually owns a PS5, but PC and Xbox Series X/S users were left slightly panicked by the news.
Take a look at the trailer below if you haven’t already seen it.
The good news is that Knights Of The Old Republic Remake (could they not have come up with a better name?) will not be a PS5 exclusive. Well, it will be… kind of. But not really. I should explain.
Aspyr confirmed over on the PlayStation Blog after the show that its remake will launch on PC alongside PS5, which is of course super news for anyone worried they were going to be left out.
Xbox fans need not be concerned either: Aspyr was very careful to describe Knights Of The Old Republic Remake as a console exclusive on PS5 “at launch”, which very much suggests it’ll end up on Microsoft’s console eventually. When? We have no idea. I expect we’ll learn more once the PS5 and PC versions get a release date.
“Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is a tremendous undertaking, encompassing almost every aspect of the original game,” Aspyr wrote. “We’re still early in development, but we’re happy to finally have announced the remake and hear the PlayStation community’s thoughts on what you’re excited to see. Whether you’re new to KOTOR or one of the millions of fans who already know and love it, there’s a great adventure ahead of us.”
