Well I do love SteamDB, as it appears STAR WARS™ Knights of the Old Republic™ II - The Sith Lords™ has a Linux icon added, so it looks like the previous ESRB leak about a Linux version could be true after all.

I would like to direct you attention to this update on SteamDB:
QuoteChange #1132106
Added linuxclienticon – 2b31bbf605989e9085d4813de5e58ea002ec8fbe

Changed changenumber – 1132087 › 1132106


Oh, and let's not forget this SteamDB update too:

383207/name: Linux Content
383208/config/oslist: linux
383208/name: Linux Executable
383209/config/language: english

This is all unconfirmed stuff right now, as usual with SteamDB changes, but it does generally indicate something is coming. We will keep our eyes transfixed to the SteamDB page for any more changes.

About the game (Official)
Five years after the events from the award winning Star Wars® Knights of the Old Republic™, the Sith Lords have hunted the Jedi to the edge of extinction and are on the verge of crushing the Old Republic. With the Jedi Order in ruin, the Republic’s only hope is a lone Jedi struggling to reconnect with the Force. As this Jedi, you will be faced with the galaxy’s most dire decision: Follow the light side or succumb to the dark…

It's a great game, and a must have for STAR WARS fans like myself. I really do hope this comes true. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Great news, but they have to find a way to make the community fixes usable in Linux as well. The base game is broken.

I always liked the first game better. :P

I have a premonition with this game (and KOTOR I). I emailed to Aspyr and they said me that the don't have plans to port this games to Linux. If they can port to Android....

These classics deserves a visual upgrade, just some texture upgrades would take us a long way.

Yes please! Great news!
Segata Sanshiro 25 Jun, 2015
Again, STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT please ;)

Mass Effect Trilogy please -.- (I Know it's from Obsidian, not from Bioware :P)
BillNyeTheBlackGuy 25 Jun, 2015
Nice. IMO, KoToR II was the better than the first game, even without the fan fixes. I hope we get to see some other obsidian titles come to linux, such as Neverwinter Nights 2 and Fallout New Vegas.

Nah, second one is better with the content patch. I just wish they could make an official one, rather then the community one that we got now.

I was basically going to ask/say the same thing. The Community update makes this game really shine, especially the end parts.
