Obsidian Entertainment's sequel to BioWare's groundbreaking Star Wars RPG is at the factory.
If you felt a small disturbance in the force recently, that's because Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords has gone gold. Though originally slated for a simultaneous release on the PC and Xbox, only the console version of the game is in production. Rated T, The Sith Lords will hit stores December 6, while the PC version is now due in February 2005.
As its title suggests, The Sith Lords is the follow-up to last year's groundbreaking Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Adored by critics and gamers alike, the game was set 4,000 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. Ironically, the game's rich storyline--in which players' choices turned them to the dark or light side of the force--restored the enthusiasm for the Star Wars universe many sci-fi fans lost after The Phantom Menace. It topped many best-of-2003 lists, and was GameSpot's Xbox Game of the Year.
