New content finally added to Knights of the Old Republic 2 by modders

It's been an extremely long time coming, but the content that got cut from Knights of the Old Republic 2 following a rushed development cycle has finally been completed and released by a modding team.

The game was originally released back in December 2004, but there was wide speculation that content had been cut from the title in order to get the game out the door (which was later mostly confirmed by the project lead.) Some people still loved the game, but it was often a mess of bugs and glitches, and the ending was full of cliffhangers.

The Sith Lords Restored Content patch has now hit v1.8 and according to the modders they are officially done. The latest version of the patch fixed a ton of bugs, restored some conversations, and dug into the files to make certain sections playable that had been cut. They even reportedly helped the ending make a bit more sense.

According to PC Gamer, there will be one final piece of content coming, though. Though there wasn't enough leftover code to "salvage" it, the original plans for the game included an entire planet of droids, which the modding group has said they'd like to construct from scratch.

    where would i go to buy the game and where do you get the mod. The reason i ask is that it does no show up on steam.

    I played through this with the 1.7 patch a few months ago and really enjoyed it. I had already finished the game multiple times on both PC and xbox and the mod is a definite improvement especially in the last few hours of the game.

    From what I've seen that was cut from KOTOR 2, the content would've been on par or better than the story elements in KOTOR1. It drove me crazy knowing some of the great parts that were cut due to time. I really hate this love-hate relationship with Obsidian.

    Played it on xbox, but I wish I had it on pc. The first game was a lot more fun that way. Is it too much to ask for KOTOR III? It's seriously the only starwars game I've ever liked

    Bioware have said that The Old Republic is meant to be the next KOTOR sequels rolled into one. Frankly I preferred the originals over an MMO.

    If your having trouble running it, right click the icon, and change compatability mode to Windows XP. Worked for me, but you might also have to do 256 colors, it just depends on whether or not it likes your hardware

    i loved playing kotor and kotor 2 on the old xbox, but trying to get kotor 2 on pc is damn near impossible, downloads of it dont work on windows 7, the disks are expensive to buy (for some reason. this patch makes me want to consider finding it and doing my best to install it

    You would always torrent it like I did. Don't get me wrong I have the game on the original Xbox but I couldn't find a copy for PC anyyywhere. And downloads do work with Windows 7, mine does.

    I picked up KotOR 1 and 2 discs from Amazon for what I think was about £7 brand new.

    When this game hits Steam then we'll talk. I bought the game and it didn't work at all and seriously why isn't it on Steam? The first one is an just about every other Star Wars game is. There is no legitimate reason this shouldn't be on Steam.

    Damn straight! Get this on steam! How hard could that be, LucasArts?

    Maybe they didn't want to be associated with unfinished Merchandise?
