If you're the sort to follow along with all the juiciest video game rumours, you've probably already heard that a remake of BioWare's classic 2003 RPG Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic is in development.
The bad news is that this long-awaited remake has yet to be officially confirmed, so we have no idea where it exactly it lies on the remake/remaster spectrum, or how much of a visual overhaul we'll be treated to. The hope is certainly that the remake is a marked improvement in terms of visuals, and that it ends up being more than just an enhanced port.
Take a look at some of the best and most beautiful Star Wars ships living their best lives thanks to this Flight Simulator mod:
While we wait to see what an official KOTOR remake might look like, one incredibly talented team of artists have put together a first-glimpse at the RPG in Unreal Engine 5 - and the results are mouth-wateringly good.
As reported by DSO Gaming, Unreal Cinema is hard at work on a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic mini-series developed with the latest version of the powerful Unreal Engine. The series is in the earliest stages of development, but the artist has released a pair of videos showcasing the power of the engine and its potential to create some truly stunning Star Wars scenes.
The first video recreates the original game's opening cinematic, which was itself completely mind-blowing at the time. With a fresh coat of paint and the benefit of new technology, Unreal Cinema was able to breathe new life into the classic scene - it's virtually indistinguishable from an actual big-screen Star Wars movie now.
Elsewhere, we can see the work that's gone into recreating the Ancient Ruins on Dantooine. This really is a top-notch effort, and has me absolutely desperate to see what the real KOTOR remake will look like. I suspect not this good, because life just isn't that kind.
