Concept Arts of Kotor 3 ?

Concept Arts of Kotor 3 ?

Found in the dark corners of one LucasArts artist's FTP, here are the supposedly first Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic III concept arts. We don't know yet if it's totally legit, but we'll let you know as soon as we have more info on this topic.

Oh my god, I mean, what the hell?
KOTOR3 rumor was already shot down, maybe this is KOTOR MMO. But in any case, KOTOR = Domination

Really cool art here.

The only reaosn why KOTOR bored me was its time based combat, choose attack and wait for it to deliver.

If they change KOTOR to more real-time like Force Unleashed but keeps the RPG in it it would be great.

One thing I liked about KOTOR was that its mood, its ambient, feel was so good.

Let's see what this Star Wars title is.

First image...female with a lightsaber

Lightsaber = star wars

Besides, KOTOR did have alot of guns and blade type weapons.

Pre-production can begin really early.

KOTOR3 as done by Bioware was shot down, that doesn't mean we can't/won't see KOTOR3.

It was on a leaked EA release list.

Indeed.

Most who follow Star Wars games should be able to recognize the conceptual style of James Zhang. Zhang has been on practically every conceptual team that has done a Star Wars game. He's been around Lucas Arts almost as long as Doug Chiang.

But this IS KOTOR, make no mistake about it. But given the variety of starfighters and character concepts, I would say this looks like the MMO everyone suspects is coming from Bioware.

Same here. Lucas Arts has their own publishing arm, I'm not sure how this would work out.

Deal was already made before EA bought BioWare then, maybe? Saw it before (Sega publishing The Club, but Bizarre has been taken over by Activision before the release of that game).

EA is letting them work with Sega, so... why not? Seems that these deals were made before the acquisition anyway.

That doesn't really look like a lightsaber. Oh well if its Kotor3 then ya but it really doesn't feel like Star Wars.

The art from Knights of the Old Republic doesn't look so much as your classical movie type Star Wars. If you check out the KOTOR comic arts, you will see how much different it is. KOTOR takes years before the movies, so it will look very different.

And yes, that does look like a lightsaber.

Yup.. the Galaxy in Star Wars lore falls into a long "dark ages" period after the fall of the old republic, and much of the technology developed and discovered in that time period is lost in the process.

No wonder why I prefer the KOTOR ages than the new ones.
I like Star Wars and all but I don't know the timeline so much.

All I know is this, Jedi and Sith battles are bad ass if done right...Darth Maul vs Obi-Wan & Qui-Gon Jinn!

Same here, I really would have loved it if it was real time, or like have the option to be realtime... Not a fan of turn based stuff at all... And the story wasn't THAT great, it was well done, but at large it really wasn't that great...

Awesome concept art though, looks really cool...And there are talks of a LucasArts-BioWare thing so who knows =)

And its definitely Star Wars, Last picture is labeled "Sith Troop Transport"
