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.
