Original Xbox video game, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, can be purchased digitally ahead of its arrival on the Xbox One just a few hours from now. The listing for the OG Xbox game is live in the online store for the Xbox 360 however, once the game launches on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility later today, it will unlock on that console as well.
Because this isn’t a re-release of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, simply added support for it on a newer console, the game isn’t being given any new online functionality or Xbox Achievements and hasn’t been remastered in any way. Despite this however, the game will look remarkably better on the Xbox One consoles than it did on the OG Xbox and will boast four times the pixel count when played on the Xbox One and Xbox One S and 16 times the pixel count on the Xbox One X. Here’s a video showcasing just how much better the game will look as well as the game’s official description and shopping link.

Can you master the legendary power of the Force™ on your quest to save the Republic? Or will you fall to the lure of the dark side?
