Aspyr will ship Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic this month.

The PC version of the title received positive reviews and 35 'Game of the Year' awards. It's expected to ship in the US around September 14, and should ship in the UK soon after.

Gameplay differs from previous Star Wars titles because it is more adventure-based, rather than being a first-person shoot-'em-up. Players decide what kind of character they want to play as - from the cunning and stealth-based Scoundrels to the more aggressive fighting-focused Soldiers.

The storyline is set 4,000 years before the Star Wars movies, introducing a whole new set of jedis, droids and wookies to replace the more familiar Luke Skywalker and Karl Katarn.

System requirements: Mac OS X 10.3.4 or later; G4 or G5 processor of 1GHz or faster; 256MB RAM (512MB recommended); and a DVD drive to install and play the game.
