Ships Ahoy - Star Wars KOTOR

The Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Website (thanks Frans) has word that the PC version of the Star Wars RPG has shipped, saying simply that the game "is available now." On a related note, GameSpy's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Q&A talks about this PC version of the Star Wars RPG with BioWare's Casey Hudson, discussing changed and additional content compared with the Xbox version.

As for multiplayer...
The storyline is really centered around one character. It's extremely difficult to make a game like this multiplayer. In order for you to make this game multiplayer, you would, moreso than NWN, have to develop an entire, robust worldbuilder setup for this. Unfortunately, do to the perspective of the game, this would be extremely challenging, and unless they dumbed down the engine, making the environments less tiered and more blocky (ie built in pieces and thus pieced together a-la halo) it'd be extremely difficult to pull off WELL.

If you can't enjoy purely single player games, then don't even bother -- this game isn't for you. It's for someone who can dig a fantastic storyline by themselves... while it would be cool to have a MP SW game like NWN, the way that this plays -- it's kind of impossible. A top-down SW RPG -- now THAT'd be cool.
