KOTOR 2 Details

The first of the promised (story) details have appeared for Knights of the Old Republic: The Sith Lords, which is the official title for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 (presumably, as the game has not yet been officially announced). This title, along with a February 2005 release date, can be found in the Knights of the Old Republic 2 first details on Gamesradar (thanks Frans), which also includes a confirmation for paranoid PC gamers that a PC edition of the game is in the works in addition to the Xbox version. Here's a bit on the sequel, which is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment:
Sith Lords is set five years on from KOTOR's conclusion: the Republic has spiralled downward into a vicious free-for-all, the Jedi have disbanded after a civil war and you play the last remaining Jedi. Ooh, we like.

So, unlike in the first game you actually start out as a Jedi. However, this is a bit of red herring. You still won't begin the game with a lightsaber and your Jedi Force powers will be limited as before. But hey, you've just returned from exile and the world's a mess - it takes time to get back into the flow. Not that much time though, and you'll be getting your hands on a lightsaber and ramping up those Jedi powers long before frustration sets in.

So what are the real differences? Well, your leanings towards the light or dark side now has an effect on your party. Start going dark and your team will be influenced by your nefarious ways and begin acting likewise. Which all makes sense to us as it did seem a bit strange that you could be holier than thou or sadistically warped in the first game and it made little difference to those around you beyond the odd 'tsk' here and there.

If the writing can even come close in KotOR 2 to the level in the first game, it will get my $$.

Agreed. I'm not a big RPG'er, but this game had me playing all the way to the end. I still want to go through it again, this time as the dark side.

But I think I'll be picking up the PC version of KotOR2. The one thing I didn't like about KotOR was the clunky Xbox interface.
