Mac gamers can finally play Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II

Over 10 years after it was first released in 2004 on Windows and the original Xbox, Aspyr Media has now released the Mac version of the classic role-playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords. It has also launch a Linux-based version of the game.

Both Knights of the Old Republic games are set thousands of years before the events of the Star Wars movies. Knights of the Old Republic II, originally developed by Obsidian Entertainment, has the player fighting as a Jedi to stop the Sith Lords from destroying the Old Republic. Aspyr Games says:

While Knights of the Old Republic II (aka KOTOR 2) has been available on Windows PC for some time, Aspyr's release of the game on Mac and Linux will bring some great updates to an already awesome game. For one, the resolution has been improved to support native resolutions and widescreen play (vs the old school 4:3 ratio). Aspyr has also added controller support and achievements to the game.

You can get the game for $6.99 in the Mac App Store or for $7.49 via Game Agent and Steam.

  • Good lord. I don't mean to be a Debbie downer but... 10 years later the game comes to the platform? Go ahead & skewer me... I deserve it.
  • Dude, it's Star Wars. Ten years is nothing. I'm still waiting for a nice retail release of the 1983 Atari coin op of Star Wars.
  • I hope this means the IOS version is coming soon. I love what Aspyr has done with that game engine. I also love what Disney is doing with Star Wars. It's great to see these old games get a new life and a second chance. They are well designed and fun!
  • I'm playing the original KOTOR on my iPad now. For the 4th time, I think.
    Spectacular game. Looking forward to playing KOTOR II on my iMac!
  • Disappointed, I must say. KOTOR 2 is no doubt a good game (from what I've read - only ever played the first one), but I was hoping for a port of something more recent - not really for Mac but more for the Linux side, with Steam OS being due soon and all. Good price though. Cheaper than the iOS version of KOTOR 1, if I'm not mistaken.
