Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic [PC Game]
Developed by: BioWare Corp. - LucasArts (2003) - Third-Person 3D RPG - Rated: Teen
Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™ (KotOR) is a computer Role-Playing Game (RPG) developed by BioWare and published by
LucasArts. It was released for Microsoft Windows on November 19, 2003. The game's system is based on Wizards of the Coast's
Star Wars Role-Playing Game, which is based on the d20 role-playing game system derived from the Third Edition Dungeons &
Dragons rules. Combat is round-based; time is divided into discrete rounds, and combatants attack and react simultaneously.
However, the number of actions a combatant may perform each round is limited. While each round's duration is a fixed short
interval of real time, the player can configure the combat system to pause at specific events or at the end of each round.
The first role-playing game based in the Star Wars universe finds players controlling a three-party team from a third-person
perspective. The setting takes place 4,000 years before the first Star Wars film, where the Jedi and Sith number in the thousands
and are involved in a war that could upset the balance of the Force. Players choose from a variety of races before they begin,
including humans, droids, Wookiees, and Twil'leks, with classes in Bounty Hunter, Scoundrel, Jedi Guardian, Scout, and Soldier.
The journey will span ten worlds as players ultimately decide on a path of good or evil, from the confines of the Jedi Academy on
Dantooine to the forests of Kashyyyk, the Sith realm of Korriban, and the desert planet of Tattooine. BioWare moves away from
the interface used in the Baldur's Gate series to create a new turn-based combat system using the 3D engine. Mini-games include
riding on a swoop bike, battling from behind a gun turret, and other events that offer players a diversion from the main storyline.
