KOTOR 2 Is Broken And Star Wars Fans Are Furious

It seems like fans were never meant to fully enjoy the cult classic "Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords," as even the latest release featuring "restored content" has come under fire for coming to fans broken. In some ways, this latest version of "KOTOR 2" is even worse than the original, releasing in a state that keeps the game from being completed.

This, of course, isn't the first time "Star Wars" fans were let down by the game, as it originally hit shelves with an acknowledgement that the game should've looked completely different, but became a victim of cut content and plot reworks. The result? A disjointed experience that should have proved a worthy successor to what some consider one of the best "Star Wars" games of all time.

The team at Aspyr had a chance to right the wrongs of the past and deliver fans the "KOTOR 2" experience they'd always hoped for, advertising that the Switch release would go on to include content left out of the original release. Fans rejoiced at this news, but they had no idea that "KOTOR 2" would find its way to them with some big issues.

Aspyr doesn't have a fix, players aren't happy

After already discovering an issue early in the game that got players stuck in a loop on Peragus, players are now finding that there's another, even more frustrating bug hiding within the title. As it stands, after watching the Basilisk Crash cutscene that plays when landing on Onderon ... the game crashes. Considering this essentially makes the title unbeatable, and the cutscene occurs roughly halfway through the game, it calls into question how the game made it through QA. Though Aspyr acknowledged the issue in a support article, players haven't been too happy with the way things have turned out.

In a Twitter exchange starting on Aspyr's release tweet for "Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords," one user commented, "Are you guys aware there is no way to complete this game? ... Whats the eta on a patch?" Aspyr copy and pasted the support article as a reply, but that's when the user doubled down, following up with, "Just to be clear you're aware that there is no way to complete this game currently?"

To this, Aspyr wrote a real reply, saying "Yes, we are aware and our dev team is working on delivering the patch as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience in the meantime!" When that update will be available is anyone's best guess, but hopefully it's in the works to release soon.
