Of these, the only ones I've played were Republic Commando and the first KOTOR.  Really need to play the rest.  Hopefully, these will have achievements.

I was never keen on Battlefront, but I enjoyed all of the others. This does kind of make me wish we hadn't sold our Xbox One.

    • KOTOR film??

      https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/05/23/star-wars-movie-based-on-knights-of-the-old-republic-reportedly-in-the-works
       
      Will make a lot of fans excited lol!
       
      Personally, I don't mind if it's set on the game itself, or if it's just set in that time period.
      I would love to see a film with a bunch of Jedi and a bunch of Sith just going at it. I don't really need Revan for that.
       
      Earlier it was rumored that the trilogy the GOT writers were working on was an Old Republic era-set series. So perhaps that is no longer true? Or we are getting two? Hmm.
    • Knights of the Old Republic movie rumours

      According to a Buzzfeed News exclusive Laeta Kalogridis is currently writing a Knights of the Old Republic screenplay which would be the first part of a trilogy. This news comes, apparently, from three sources close to the project.
      Laeta Kalogridis has worked as screenwriter on several big projects, including Shutter Island and Terminator Genisys. More recently she was co-screenwriter for Alita: Battle Angel, and created the Netflix series Altered Carbon.
      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic needs no introduction; the 2003 RPG from BioWare has long been a fan favourite, and is set in an era 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin as seen in the original Star Wars movie. The game introduced many beloved characters such as Bastilla Shan, HK-47 (the original sassy droid that makes Rogue One's K-2SO look friendly), and of course Darth Revan. I won't spoil the plot, but if you haven't played it then you should give it a go if you're into that type of gameplay.
      According to Buzzfeed representatives from Lucasfilm, Disney, or of Kalogridis have not commented on this news, which comes just over a week after Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Star Wars 2022 was from Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and DB Weiss. At Celebration Chicago in April, Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that Old Republic content was in the works, but did not elaborate.
      However true this information is, we will be watching with great interest. After all, there were many beloved stories set in the post-Return of the Jedi era that were scrapped to make way for the new canon. The era in which Knights of the Old Republic is set was also wiped from canon, along with the Dawn of the Jedi series, and the Tales of the Jedi comics, but nothing has yet replaced them.
      Could the story of KotOR be adopted into the new canon, or will the writers build their own stories that re-imagine the era entirely? Let us know what you think.
    • Old Republic content in the works, hints Kathleen Kennedy

      Kathleen Kennedy has appeared to confirm during an interview with MTV that a project set in the Old Republic era is in development. 
      When prompted by MTV that a lot of fans would like to see something related to Knights of the Old Republic, Kennedy smiled and confirmed that this was something had been spoken about a lot and that something was in development right now. Planning seems to be in early stages right now, as she was keen to avoid giving any sort of hints as to what the story might entail, and went on to reiterate the plans to have a longer gap between movies going forwards. 
      Star Wars News Net has previously posted a rumour, that had apparently come from a reliable source, stating that the project being worked on by Game of Thrones TV adaptation creators David Benioff and DB Weiss was set in the distant past of the Star Wars canon. Rian Johnson has already denied that his Star Wars trilogy will be set during the Old Republic era, and it is widely thought that he would be picking up from threads he wove into The Last Jedi.
      On a personal level, I would hope that a Knights of the Old Republic project would draw inspiration from the Dark Horse Comics Tales of the Jedi series rather than the more recent video games that followed. As Darth Bane has already been confirmed as existing in the new canon, it is possible that we may see some of his story come into play.

    • Battlefront II adds new Capital Supremacy game mode

      EA's flagship Star Wars game Battlefront II has added a new multiplayer game mode today with Capital Supremacy.
      Capital Supremacy sees opposing teams fight for control of five command posts on the ground, each of which reward the controlling team with reincforcements to bolster their position. Once a team has gathered enough reinforcements transport ships will be spawned, allowing the team to attack the enemy capital ship and win the match.
      The first map is based on Geonosis, and is a brand new map that will be unfamiliar to players. As the new Capital Supremacy game mode is set within the Clone Wars era, players on side of the Republic will need to bring down a Separatist Dreadnought, while those fighting for the Confederacy will need to take out the Republic Attack Cruiser.
      Heroes for the Republic include Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, and Chewbacca, with new Infiltrator-class Republic ARC Troopers providing reinforcements. The Seperatists are include General Grievous, Count Dooku, Darth Maul, and Bossk, with BX Commando Droids helping defend their command posts.
      The update also includes improved lightsaber combat, and you can read more in the offical patch notes here.
    • Lucasfilm to develop Star Wars games in-house?

      Update: Since time of publishing it has been discovered that the vacancies are for only marketing and public relations roles. The original article is preserved below for reference.
      Job vacancies have appeared on the Disney Careers website that appear to indicate a return to in-house development of Star Wars games. The new positions at Lucasfilm Games include high level develop roles such as Producers and Art Directors for work on new console projects.
      Developer EA Games has held exclusive development rights for Star Wars properties on most consoles since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012; this included LucasArts, which they promptly shuttered. While LucasArts released many Star Wars games over the years, EA has only managed to release two AAA titles: Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefront 2, both of which have had a mixed reception.
      Jedi: Fallen Order is currently still in development by EA subsidiary Respawn Entertainment, but little is known about the game at this time, although new details are expected at Celebration next month. So far more Star Wars projects have been cancelled than released, including a game by Dead Space developer Visceral, and Star Wars 1313 which was in development by LucasArts at the time it was closed.
      This may indicate that Disney does not intend to renew EA's exclusive hold of the Star Wars licence. Could we see a return to the glory days of Star Wars gaming?
