Originally released for the Xbox in 2003, Knights of the Old Republic quickly won over fans worldwide and critical acclaim for its rich character driven narrative, innovative player choice morality system, and turn-based combat system.

Set in the Old Republic, 4,000 years before the events of the Star Wars movies, KoTOR follows the struggle between the Sith and Jedi in a desperate struggle for the galaxy’s fate. The game was so popular and successful that it spawned two sequel in the form of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords in 2005 and an MMORPG in 2011 Star Wars: The Old Republic
