The Sony PlayStation showcase dropped some big announcements and some big surprises. Sony kicked things off by unveiling a long rumoured title.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake
Yup, It’s finally official! The classic RPG is coming back with a new coat of paint. It will be released for the PlayStation 5 and PC, though it will be a timed exclusive for Sony’s console at launch.
Bioware, the creators of Mass Effect who developed the original, will not be returning for the remake. Instead, Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games have the reins on this one.
This is no Jedi mind trick!
