A spin-off of Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy allows players to create their own Jedi, train in the Academy under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn and ultimately choose to follow the path of the Light Side or the Dark Side of the Force. The game is powered by the same version of the Quake III engine used in its predecessor, Jedi Outcast, containing modifications to the Quake code to give a third-person view and new lightsaber effects (Jedi Knight II had these 3rd person effects as well). Players have the ability to construct their own lightsaber by choosing the hilt style and blade color. After completing certain objectives, new saber styles become available.

Changes From Jedi Outcast to Jedi Academy

  • Your character, Jaden, can be male or female and is customizable. For example, you can choose from several lightsaber colors and hilt types as well as from several species:
  • - Twi'lek female
    - Kel Dor male
    - Human male or female
    - Zabrak female
    - Rodian male

  • New Force Powers in single player; Force Absorb, Force Protect, Force Drain, and Force Rage (these powers were available in Jedi Outcast's multiplayer game, but not in the single player game.)
  • New lightsaber combat moves including katas, wall gripping, and acrobatics.
  • Four new weapons: DL-44 Blaster Pistol and Stouker Concussion Rifle, Saberstaff (double bladed lightsaber) and dual sabers. A variety of saber hilts are also available.
  • New vehicles and vehicle-based levels, including Tauntauns and speeder bikes.
  • Power Duel mode: Players join as an individual or as a team of two. The individual has more health and Force power in exchange for being at a disadvantage in numbers.
  • Siege Mode: Players work to complete goals and stop the other team from completing their goals.
  • AI NPCs (not just bots, as before) in Multiplayer.
  • Decreased limitations on world objects in Multiplayer, enhancing modding possibilities (and making coop play theoretically possible).
  • Various bugfixes, gameplay tweaks and subtle changes (especially to the Multiplayer component).
  • Enhanced rendering of the Quake III: Team Arena engine, including dynamic glow features.
  • Removal of the First Person Lightsaber view that can be found in both Jedi Knight and Jedi Outcast.

This time there won't be big news, but there is still something we must show and tell you. First of all, we have a new hub for our daily news on The Dark Pastime mod, that we made in Telegram app. It's not an alternative, but rather an additional source of information, which will include only small bits of information, some screenshots, pictures, sketches, various comments and small stories, related to DP. You can check the latest daily news here: The Dark Pastime Channel. Feel free to join!

For discussions and comments, please use JKHub and Moddb as before ;)

Aside from this we wanted to introduce one of the new characters in the Dark pastime mod, which actually isn't that new. In the past we mentioned him as a "mostly our own creation", but it's one of those things which we usually don't want to reveal before the release, but today we would like him to bring to the light: it's a Sith Lord, actually a Sith'ari, hailing from Dromund Kaas – Darth Whirmah.


Darth Whirmah, a Sith Lord from the old times.


There isn't much to tell about him right now, his biography and role in the story. I can only assure you, that he isn't the main antagonist and isn't the mastermind behind the events in DP. The origins of Darth Whirmah will be revealed however via our DP channel, mentioned above.


LEP Servant Droids are a rare thing to find in the Galaxy these days


This one is an "unlikely hero", yet the little cute droid from the Clone Wars era found his way into the story in DP. Used on many occasions both the separatist generals and the Republic senators, the droid model became less and less popular during the Galactic Empire reign. Yet it could still be found in various Outer Rim worlds, such as Rutana or Uffel. You'll meet these a few times during your adventure.

As always, we are open for comments and suggestions, which you can post here or on JKHub.

I believe one is already in development or in pre-development. Ask on JKHub.org, they may be able to clarify that better than I can.

Are Quake III: Arena playermodels compatible with this game?
I have these cool Space Ghost models that would be fun to play as.

They'll need being converted to JA format in order to be available in the game. I remember, that in Q3 they are md3-based, while in JA - they are glm models.
