Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic 3 Plot Details Revealed
I know I’m not alone when I say that I wish there had been a third Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game, and Obsidian Entertainment apparently had plans to fulfill that request before what can only be described as ‘internal politics’ got in the way. Now, to squeeze a bit of lemon juice into the wound, we now have some details on what the plot could have been had Obsidian been allowed to develop the title.
Now at Reboot Develop, former Obsidian Entertainment employee Chris Avellone recently spoke with vg247 about the story plans for KOTOR3, which Avellone happily revealed. “When we finished the second one we were all trying to restore our lives back to sanity,” Avellone said. “We did start working on the third game pitch, because we always imagined the trilogy. Even when working on the second game, we [tried] to foreshadow what Darth Revan was doing in the second game, and he wasn’t always just ruthlessly and mindlessly blowing everything up. He actually had a larger plan because there was some greater manipulation and threat going on.”
The third game involved you, as a player character, following where Revan went and then taking the battle to the really ancient Sith lords who are far more terrifying than the Darths that show up. These guys would just be monsters. These would have a level of power that was considerable, but at the same time you’d be able to dig more into their psychologies, and their personalities, their history, and even how they dealt with the player, how they talk with the player, the different powers they cultivated and developed, and for some of them like – they’re the ancients, so they’re not just ruling a solar system, [but] swathes of the galaxy.”
Avellone continues by revealing that the places the player would travel would reveal “how they left their stamp on that world, or that solar system, or whatever collection of moons. You’d see how horrible that was. Part of that environment would tell a story about that. [That] would be a great, epic way to end the trilogy. The Old Republic are out there. We just didn’t get a chance to do it.”
Unfortunately it seems like the doors are permanently closed on a possible KOTOR3, though at least we have plenty of other Star Wars games coming in the future, such as Jedi Fallen Order.
