Grab your lightsaber Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic launches on Android

SW - KOTOR
Older gamers will be quite happy today with the launch of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on Google Play.

After launching on iOS a year or so ago, Role Playing Game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is now available on Google Play and to celebrate it’s launching with a 50% off discount – just $6.14 (/s) for your chance to get your Jedi on. Knights of the Old Republic is a big game though, clocking in at 2.4GB in size and it’s only available for devices (including the ADT-1 but not the Nexus Player) running Android 4.1 and above.

The story for the RPG goes thusly:

It is four thousand years before the Galactic Empire and hundreds of Jedi Knights have fallen in battle against the ruthless Sith. You are the last hope of the Jedi Order. Can you master the awesome power of the Force on your quest to save the Republic? Or will you fall to the lure of the dark side? Hero or villain, savior or conqueror… you alone will determine the destiny of the entire galaxy!

Feature wise, the game includes :

  • An epic Star Wars™ role-playing experience with unique characters, creatures, vehicles and planets.
  • Learn to use the Force with over 40 different powers, plus build your own Lightsaber.
  • Adventure through iconic Star Wars locations, including Tatooine and the Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk.
  • Choose your party from nine customizable characters, including Twi’leks, Droids and Wookiees.
  • Travel to eight enormous worlds in your own starship, the Ebon Hawk.
  • A streamlined user interface custom-made for the touch screen helps immerse you in the action.
  • Full HID controller support for those gamers that prefer the original control scheme.
  • For the first time, KOTOR has achievements!

Head on over to Google Play and grab the game while it’s cheap.

If I was casting my nexus screen to my TV and opened this game would that work?

It should, but I expect it would lag quite significantly.
