The history of games from well-regarded developer Obsidian Entertainment being buggy is pretty notorious — even outsiders (like myself) know the reputation of games like Fallout: New Vegas and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II. And apparently that status is not merely a product of inadequate time or resources being given to QA but perhaps some sort of curse, because it’s even affected the port of KOTOR II — the game has a bug that forces you to crash after a certain cutscene halfway through the game, meaning you currently can’t play more than 50% of the product as of the moment.
The cutscene in question is titled, of all things, “Basilisk Crash” — so on the nose that it’s almost eerie. Dev studio Aspyr has admitted that they’re aware that nobody can complete the game and that they’re working on releasing a patch as soon as possible. While not much more can be expected at the moment, it’s remarkable that the game made it past quality clearance in its current state if nobody can beat it.
We’ll be sure to update whenever the fix happens. Hopefully that’ll be quite soon and folks can finish KOTOR II without any further delays.
