Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake might have a new combat system
PlayStation thrilled fans last year by confirming a Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic remake. Fans have been wondering how the KOTOR remake will change, and if rumours hold, the combat system is being completely rebuilt.
According to recent leaks from Matty Schroeder of Defining Duke podcast, KOTOR’s remake will feature a multi-faceted action-oriented combat system similar to God of War (2018) or Nioh. This would significantly change the turn-based combat system in the original KOTOR. It will be interesting to see what fans think.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order utilized a similar combat system as those games. This worked in Fallen Order’s favour and earned it critical praise. It is possible to use a similar combat engine in the KOTOR remake. This could convert even gamers who did not enjoy KOTOR.
The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic movie remake is yet to be released. Fans interested in the original KOTOR game can find it on the Nintendo Switch.
