Just wondering if Bioware will ever remake the original KOTOR using the TOR engine. Think it would be pretty awesome!

They could re-use all of the voice overs from the original. It wouldn't necessarily be a remake, but an update I suppose.

Considering the games are on entirely different engines, it wouldn't be a simple process to recreate all the models and animations, etc. You'd have to almost start from scratch, and if you're going to do all the work, why make a remake that original owners probably won't buy, when you could make a sequel that the original owners will buy?

I'm not saying recreate all of the models and stuff, just use what is already in the game. I think it would be a nice little treat for everyone.

I was thinking about this the other day. I think it would be awesome, especially if it wasn't a line for line remake and they did things like using TOR's combat for it instead of KoTOR's (because KoTOR's combat was incredibly boring), added a bunch more armour, added SGRA etc.

How about no. The games a classic, leave it the way it is. It especially doesnt need SGRA's.

Just because something is a classic doesn't mean it can't be improved. KoTOR's combat system is one of the worst combat systems ever. The game had a major lack of armour and adding more would be a good thing. Also the game already had a SGRA arc. I don't see how opening up Carth and Bastila to also be romancable by same-gender would be a bad thing. It wouldn't impact you at all, unless you wanted it to. You could go through the whole game without ever having to experience it.

No but actualy need some good suport and updates, in runing the game on more recent OS. there is alot of problems with compatibility. , i know i know there is mods, but even the mods dont fix everything, they could update the game a bit, i would certainly be happy with it.
I bought it on steam the other day ( bought it again lol) was 5 euros or so :P cant remember.
and basicaly i cant play it fully well. in windows 7, with my monitor resulotion. They should improve it, as it seems even today im not the only one buying that game, i know alot of people who still buy KOTOR to play it.

That said if they updated the game, why not update the gráphics a bit. A HD experience would nice. but that is just me.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

It had compatibility problems almost as soon as it was released on PC.
Had to roll back my ATI Catalyst drivers more than a few times, each time I wanted to play it.


It's almost ten years old now, and I honestly want to see an updated "KoTOR Saga", with both KoTOR and TSL released together. Updated for modern systems, cut content restored etc etc.
Played both games many, many times.
