Ten Years Later, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 Gets Major Update
Sith Lords gets a major update, as the RPG also launches today for Mac and Linux.
More than a decade after its release in 2004, Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords continues to expand to new platforms and add fresh features. The Obsidian-developed role-playing game launched on Tuesday for Mac and Linux, with a major update for the existing PC edition also launching today.
New features available now for Knights of the Old Republic II include:
- Steam Workshop support
- Controller support
- Native widescreen resolution support
- Support for up to 5K monitors
- Steam Cloud saves
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.
