Citing an anonymous source, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on PS5 will eschew the turn-based combat system of BioWare’s original critically acclaimed Xbox title, instead adopting a more straight-forward action system not unlike God of War.
Elsewhere, the YouTuber has heard that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake will feature multiple modes for combat, similar to what Final Fantasy VII Remake employed. In case you didn’t play that game, Square Enix’s title adopted an action-based combat system but also offered a Classic option for those looking for something closer to the original 1997 version.
Nothing official has been confirmed yet, and it’s worth pointing out that the game is still a long way off at this point. As previously reported, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake isn’t expected to arrive until 2023.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is currently in development exclusively for PS5 and PC.
