Having been released for the above platforms this means that there are a number of changes that are applicable to all platforms. The best of course is the ability to use much higher resolutions, up to a whopping 5K. It achieves this magical feat through the use of up-sampling and a healthy dose of anti-aliasing.
The modding community has also been opened up with support for the Steam Workshop. One of the first mods available is also going a fantastic representation of the type of ingenuity that’s still enthusiastic about supporting even this 11 year-old game, The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod
Knights of the Old Republic II still has quite the following, even being compared to the Empire Strikes Back in how it captured all the great things in video gaming and RPG’s specifically.
