PROGRESS REPORT: 11/13/2018
This report will be going over what you can expect to see in the next update.
TWO NEW MISSIONS
Today we're pleased to officially announce our next two missions.
Our first mission, developed by Linken, will depict the final fight in Return of the Jedi between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Keeping with the tradition of playing different characters, Luke vs. Vader, which will be later dubbed as "Father vs. Son", will allow you to play as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine.
Our next mission, a direct result of our recent community feedback poll, will take place during Revenge of the Sith. Developed by team member Darth Voiid, you will be able to experience Operation: Knightfall, the beginning of the end of the Jedi Order. Operation: Knightfall will give you the choice of playing as 3 characters; Darth Vader, Cin Drallig, and a 501st Legion Clone Trooper.
REVAN VS. MALAK
Changes have been made to the Revan vs. Malak bonus mission, and will be available with the next update. Aside from some minor bug fixes, the biggest change to the mission is that Revan will no longer be a mute. His voice will now be provided by Kevin Smets, the voice of Logan Starr/Revan in the KOTOR Trilogy series on YouTube.
Internally in the team, we are currently putting together a new batch of characters for you to be able to choose from. As we want to release a large number of characters at once, the new characters we have presently will not be available in the next update. New characters will include Darth Zannah, Serra Keto, Siri Tachi, and Emperor Vitiate, with more on the way.
Production on the heavily requested multiplayer bots has begun. Like the selection of new characters, the bots will not be available in the next update. We will be attempting to add as many bots as possible with an easier way to select which bots you want to play with. Adding botroutes to maps thus far has not begun development and will take up a lot of time. If anyone with experience would like to volunteer to add botroutes to the maps currently in the mod, we would be incredibly grateful.
To finalize what was stated above, here is our current roadmap for our next 2 updates.
UPDATE 1: Luke vs. Vader (ROTJ), Operation: Knightfall (ROTS), Revan vs. Malak fixes, misc fixes.
UPDATE 2: 2 new missions, new characters, multiplayer bots, language translations, Duel of the Fates fixes.
Thank you for following the development of Knights of the Force 2.1, and may the Force be with you.
