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.
