  • Native widescreen resolution support
  • Support for up to 5K monitors

Developers also say they worked with the team behind The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod to make that mod available to players. The fan-made mod includes a host of bug fixes, as well as content that Obsidian developed but didn't make it into the game upon its initial release in December 2004.
