Knights of the Old Republic is one of Bioware’s signature games, an RPG set in the Star Wars universe, 4,000 years before the events of the films. The Republic is in chaos and under attack by a Sith Armada led by Darth Malak. The player begins as an amnesiac aboard a Republican ship before fleeing to hide on the planet of Taris. Games like STAR WARS – Knights of the Old Republic are immersive with excellent storytelling
The game takes place across several distinctive worlds, space stations, and ships, as the player quests the galaxy. Alignment plays a key role in the game with players’ morality choices affecting what companions they can recruit as well as the game ending. The game offers a selection of companions to recruit, each with their own unique abilities and talents, some of which are necessary to progress in the storyline.
The game also features a variety of mini-games such as swoop racing, pazaak card playing, and space combat. Some of these can benefit the player financially.
The sequel is set five years later with a mixture of new and old characters. The games have been continued with the MMO, The Old Republic, a freemium game that is popular worldwide.
