With the continuation of its movie saga, Star Wars is currently one of the most buzzing universes in our culture. However, there is so much more to the franchise than just the movies, for many of its games have conquered special places in fans’ hearts. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is one of such games, and as a testimony to its popularity, a group of fans has decided to remake the entire game using Unreal Engine 4. They have dubbed this endeavor “Apeiron.”
The project is not just a “simple” remake, as its contributors are aiming to go above and beyond. They are planning to add a whole lot of new content to the game, like missions, companions, worlds, items, and even HUD. At the moment it is just in its grassroots stage though, and there is a long road ahead for it to reach any sort of completion. This road isn’t without traps and pitfalls, because Disney might just force the developers to cease-and-desist, even though they do not accept donations and are planning to give the game away for free.
