These Sith Lords would have been “much more terrifying than the Darths.”
Obsidian had large plans for Star Wars: Knights of the Previous Republic three, and though the sport by no means noticed the sunshine of day, considered one of its writers has given us a glance into what may have been for this deliberate subsequent entry within the beloved KOTOR sequence.
At Reboot Develop, VG247 spoke to steer author and designer for Star Wars: Knights of the Previous Republic II: The Sith Lords and requested him if Obsidian had ever began work on a narrative for Knights of the Previous Republic three.
Avellone confirmed that work was underway, because the workforce at all times envisioned the KOTOR story to be a trilogy.
“After we completed the second we had been all making an attempt to revive our lives again to sanity,” Avellone remembers. “We did begin engaged on the third recreation pitch, as a result of we at all times imagined the trilogy. Even when engaged on the second recreation, we [tried] to foreshadow what Darth Revan was doing within the second recreation, and he wasn’t at all times simply ruthlessly and mindlessly blowing all the pieces up. He really had a bigger plan as a result of there was some larger manipulation and menace occurring.”
“The third recreation concerned you, as a participant character, following the place Revan went after which taking the battle to the actually historical Sith lords who’re much more terrifying than the Darths that present up. These guys would simply be monsters. These would have a stage of energy that was appreciable, however on the identical time you’d be capable of dig extra into their psychologies, and their personalities, their historical past, and even how they handled the participant, how they speak with the participant, the totally different powers they cultivated and developed, and for a few of them like – they’re the ancients, in order that they’re not simply ruling a photo voltaic system, [but] swathes of the galaxy.”
Avellone continued to clarify how all these locations the participant would journey would present how these historical Sith lords “left their stamp on that world, or that photo voltaic system, or no matter assortment of moons.” Environmental storytelling would have been an enormous a part of KOTOR three and would assist convey the pure evil these Sith lords have wrought.
Avellone additionally introduced up how these Sith lords could be “initially mysterious, however they would not be unknowable like Snoke within the newer movies.” An enormous a part of KOTOR three could be uncovering their origin tales and studying about what introduced them to their top of energy and…nicely…evilness.
Whereas we might by no means see KOTOR three on this type, as Avellone thinks the sport was cancelled because of “inside politics,” we do have Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to stay up for, which bought its large debut at Star Wars Celebration.
As well as, following the discharge of Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, there are rumors that the Recreation of Thrones showrunners could also be engaged on movies that may happen in The Previous Republic that may hopefully give followers one other look into the unimaginable historical past of the universe of Star Wars.
