A KOTOR Reboot with Unreal 4 Engine? Wohoo!
This is a major project that will likely be under development for quite some time into the future. However, the progress made already is significant and we have a whole bunch of screenshots available as well as a couple of demo videos.
I learned about Apeiron from a friend about a month ago and considering this is to be a MOD to the original KOTOR game, I was a little sceptical it would ever be finished. Considering the amount of projects like this one that never see the real world as a finished product, we can only wish these guys good luck and show them all of our support! The game is a legend now and those of us who have played it some 12-13 years ago, would be happy to revisit it with a new perspective and a modern touch. For you, who haven’t had the chance to play KOTOR ever before, this is your chance.
The official website of the KOTOR Reboot project is http://www.apeirongame.com/ and down below I have listed a few interesting notes in the form of Q&A, taken directly from the project’s website.
What is Apeiron
Apeiron is a reboot of the Knights of the old Republic that was released in 2003. Apeiron is a remake and remastering of the original game with added content, new worlds, missions, HUD, inventory, items, and companions.
Who’s making it
A group of dedicated programmers, artists, voice actors, world builders, and writers that have all come together to breathe life back into a wonderful game. The core creators are an indie gaming group called Poem Studios, but the project will grow as needed.
How many credits
Apeiron will be 100% FREE! You’ll still have to own a copy of the original game, but past that we are not charging.
