Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic finally lands on Android

It may have taken its sweet time after seeing an initial mobile release on iOS over a year ago, but Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic has finally made its Android debut. The port brings the massively popular title to a whole new audience with optimized touch controls.

If you need a bit of a refresher on where exactly in the Star Wars timeline this Xbox classic takes place, along with your role, here's the rundown given on the Play Store:

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!

The game's graphics haven't necessarily aged well, but it is worth a play through if you've never given it a shot before. Right now, you can snatch it up for a cool $4.99 — a 50 percent discount — by clicking through the Play Store badge above.

  • Tablet only? Noooooooo! Well my replacement Nexus 7 will be here tomorrow at least. Hopefully the phone port happens soon. Posted via the Android Central App on my Droid Turbo.
  • Works on my M8
  • I was just about to ask why the hell my Turbo can't play this, and there's my answer. What gives with the M8 only? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't know about that. I can download it on my Note 3 but not my Note 10.1 2014. Posted via the Android Central App
  • My Moto X 2014 is also supported. Probably a resolution or pixel density requirements. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Moto X 2013 seems to be supported as well, which puts a kibosh on that whole resolution/pixel density argument. =P
  • Downloadable on my S4 Mini. Far from a tablet. But will probably stick to playing it on my Nexus 7 2013 Posted via AC App from my S4 mini WITH an LED CrackLight ;-)
  • This is Red Leader standing by. Nexus 6 is reading normal. I repeat. Nexus 6 is reading normal. Speaking of normal. Now that we are one big happy family with Disney, do you think Ariel's really happy? I was thinking about makin a move once this Death Star stuff is all over. I mean she's hot right? That Prince she married seems like chump. Saw him the other day and he broke out in some stupid song. I was like what?? Plus Ariel is still combing her hair with a fork so I figured I got a good shot. Zenwatch rhymes with Winwatch. Coincidence? I think not.
  • It works fine with my note 4 . Of all the phones I have on my account the Motorola droid turbo and the Samsung Galaxy s3 and s2 skyrocket don't work but my note 3 , nexus 5 and note 4 do . The only tablet that does is the nexus 7 but not on e Samsung Galaxy s tab 10.5, note 10.1 2024 edition but the nexus 7 is ....
  • Works on S4 Posted via the Android Central App
  • With XCOM, GTA Chinatown Wars, and this, I am glad that Android is getting all these games. Better late than never.
  • Borderlands, Game of Thrones, Wolf Among Us, Walking Dead 1 & 2. Yep it's a great time to have an Android..as long as it's good one. Yes these are the (An)Droids you're looking for. Zenwatch rhymes with Winwatch. Coincidence? I think not.

  • darn, I got KotOR went it released on GOG a while back but that's pretty awesome that a mobile version was released
  • Downloading on my N6. I cant wait. Casting the screen and playing tonight, Hope theres controller support.
  • There goes my Christmas vacation. Posted via Android Central App
  • Google Play tells me to go fuck myself on my Tab3. Will have to wait and see if it runs on my S5.
  • It's not (yet) a slimmed down version, so the total file size will be more than 2.4Gb.
    Yikes..
  • Working on my Nexus 4. Slightly low FPS when outdoors in areas with a long draw distance (I'd guess maybe 25 FPS), but 100% playable.
  • I can't imagine playing this on a touch screen Posted via the Android Central App
  • I got it working on my turbo Posted via the Android Central App
  • Doesn't work on Xoom even when I over clock it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Works on my HTC One but not my Samsung Tablet 3
  • I have no character textures on Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500. Also the interactable doors have no textures. The characters appear all white. Changing graphics within the game doesn't help. I have also tried to tun on 4X MSAA from developer options but no luck. Any help will be appreciated.
  • same problem on Galaxy S4 i9500, all white for faces and doors and most bodies
  • Please let me know if you find a solution.
  • Try GLtools apk from play market - its non free but pretty cheap. its needed rotted device however. So inside apk there need to check custom settings for KOTOR and Optimize GLSL shaders... it works for me.
  • You find any solution to this ? Non root solution?
  • I'm running it on my Galaxy S3. (verizon). controls actually feel pretty natural and are way better than chronotrigger on iOS. I can't imagine running it on a screen smaller than the S3's though.
