Knights Of The Old Republic 2 Receives A Surprise New Patch For PC, Mac & Linux

It might be over a decade old now, having released back in 2004, but Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 – The Sith Lords has received a major new patch by Mac focussed publisher Aspyr, bringing it to new platforms in the process. It’s especially pertinent news, given the blog we posted just a few moments ago!

It is now a full SteamPlay title, meaning that if you already owned it on Steam of Windows, you also have access to the game on Mac and Linux, but the patch has added a number of niceties that bring the game up to the modern standards we expect of a Steam release – though if you’d prefer, the game is also now available on the Mac App Store.

• 37 achievements to be earned through gameplay
• Steam Cloud saves
• Native widescreen resolution support
• Resolution support up to 4K and 5K
• Support for controllers, including Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation
3, and Playstation 4, along with several others (check the system requirements for details)
• Steam Workshop support! We proudly worked with the Restored Content Mod Team to have their famous TSLRCM up on launch day

There’s also a special “Force Speed Effects” option in the menu, which remains a mystery. For now.

  1. Wow! I recall being addicted to this game when the original xbox came out, so much so that I was working around the country a lot at the time, staying hotels overnight, and I would lug my xbox and the game around with me between hotels and work. A great game!

    • That is commitment, well done mate! I committed in a different way and let this game dominate a year of my life while I should’ve been working harder at uni. I’m amazed that it’s being supported after so many years, good work Lucasarts and Steam. And whoever else is doing all the hard work!

      • This really has nothing to do with Lucasarts or Steam. It’s Aspyr, who are a well known Mac porting house and publisher – or as well known as such a company can be – who have done all of the work.
