AUSTIN, Texas—December 19th, 2013—Aspyr Media today announced that Star Wars™: Knights of the Old Republic™ 1.1 is now live on the App Store℠ as a free update for all current users.

Originally developed and released exclusively for iPad® by leading Mac games publisher Aspyr earlier this year to commemorate the pioneering game’s 10th anniversary, the latest update brings with it a host of new enhancements including iPhone® and iPod touch® support, and enhanced visuals.

“The response from players around the world since the iPad release has been nothing short of remarkable,” said Elizabeth Howard, Aspyr’s Vice President of Publishing. “To be able to bring this timeless classic to even more players is our way of showing continued thanks for all of the support we’ve been shown from KOTOR’s unrelenting fans.”
