Developers Cancel KOTOR 2 Restoration DLC on Switch, Offer Free Games as Apology
The Disappointing News
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, or KOTOR 2, was released in 2004. It has since become a beloved classic among gamers due to its rich and immersive story, complex characters, and innovative gameplay mechanics. Fans have been eagerly waiting for its Restoration DLC, which will feature cut content, restored missions, and other enhancements.
The wait just got longer, unfortunately, as Aspyr Media, the company in charge of the release, recently announced the cancellation of the DLC for the Nintendo Switch version. Aspyr explained that they encountered some unexpected issues during development, which led them to abandon the project altogether. They expressed their sincerest apologies to the KOTOR 2 community who are eagerly waiting for the DLC.
A Heartfelt Apology
In an effort to make up for the cancellation, Aspyr has offered to give out free games to Switch owners who have purchased KOTOR 2 before April 6, 2021. Players can choose from a selection of titles, including:
– Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
– Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
– Star Wars Episode I: Racer
To claim the free game, players must sign up on the Aspyr website and provide proof of purchase. The offer ends on May 31, 2021.
The Reactions from Fans
While the free games are certainly a nice gesture, many KOTOR 2 fans are understandably disappointed by the cancellation of the DLC. Some have expressed their frustration on social media, criticizing Aspyr for not providing enough updates on the progress of the project and for canceling it so abruptly. Others have expressed their appreciation for the company’s apology and willingness to make amends.
