Knights Of The Old Republic 2 Players Accidentally Find Fourth Wall Breaking Easter Egg
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 – The Sith Lords just got re-released on Nintendo Switch, opening up this phenomenal game to a new generation. And with the popular restored content mod getting added as DLC at a later date, they'll get to play it in its best form possible.
However, even in the vanilla game, there are plenty of cool things to discover – such as a fourth-wall-breaking easter egg in the first few minutes of your playthrough. As some players are now finding out, it's possible to get Atton to break the fourth wall in your first conversation with him, and reveal an interesting fact about the game's development in the process.
"I'm Atton. I actually wasn't supposed to make it into the final game, but I was created at the last minute. Blame my agent.", Atton greets you, throwing many players off. "I was actually slated for a spin-off to Jedi Knight, but I don't want to talk about what happened *there*."
As you can see in the replies, this has caught out a few fans before. But as others mention, this isn't a random occurrence. To get Atton to introduce himself like this, you have to have two different playthroughs saved: one light side, one dark side. When you start your third, you'll get Atton's unique introduction.
Better yet, you actually get even more of this dialogue if your third playthrough is with a female character. As anyone who's played as a lady will know, Atton immediately hits on you regardless of how many save files you have. But if you've got the set-up right, he'll instead open with, "Are you an angel? Aw, I'm just kidding. That's the worst line I've ever used. Hope some poor kid doesn't start using it". This is clearly poking fun at Anakin in The Phantom Menace, which premiered a few years before the game launched.
Oh, and if you're wondering what Atton meant by the whole Jedi Knights spin-off thing, he's referring to the fact that Atton Rand was the original name for the Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy protagonist, but the devs went with Jaden Korr instead.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 is available now on PC and Nintendo Switch.
