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.

Thanks for all the feedback! Today we're launching version 2.1 of Evolution of Combat IV, this update fixes bugs spotted by users since the launch of patch #1 last weekend and introduces some new features including...

  • A fix for the issue with force powers in singleplayer
  • Jedi Master button is back in the singleplayer menus
  • Controls menu now uses the correct font
  • Jedi Academy Characters menu is now back in singleplayer
  • The saber clash system has been updated for multiplayer to allow more control over saber clashes
  • More memory leaks and small bugs fixed

We hope you'll enjoy the new update. The feedback you've been giving us really helps to develop the mod to something players will enjoy! If you're still getting issues with the latest update, please let us know by creating a forum thread and not by leaving a comment on the ModDB page - the comments section is ideally really only for little comments about the mod, not big feedback or bug reports. You can also hop onto the Discord chat to talk to us and the other members of the community at any time.

Keep in mind that this mod is the result of years worth of work, so please be positive when posting feedback. It doesn't help to get criticism when we've given up so much time working on this project for the community. We want to try and help you out, but remember that this isn't our full time job as we make no money from it, so we can only do as much as our free time allows. We're not a professional game development studio!

Here are some screenshots of the latest update...

2016 02 04 00003

^ The updated pause menu, Jedi Master is back!

2016 02 04 00009

^ The JA Characters menu is also back and can be accessed from the in-game character select screen

2016 02 04 00008

^ Force powers are fixed in singleplayer

You can get V2.1 by simply launching your game! When you start the launcher and click multiplayer or singleplayer the update will begin to install automatically. Don't worry, you won't loose any saves during the update, but you will loose your settings. When the game starts you'll just have to rebind your controls and set your video settings again.

If you get an error during the update, please close the launcher and make sure you have no game files open (E.G. the server .bat, etc). Reopen the launcher by running as an administrator and start the install again, it should work fine!

Thanks again for the feedback and support, don't forget you can follow us on Twitter for all the latest and chat to us over on Discord if you need help.

Since Lucas Files is down I can't find Hapslash's improved stormtrooper anywhere. The one on JKfiles is actually for JKO and the StOfficer skin doesn't work, does anyone know somewhere else I can download it?

Hey, I rescripted Jedi Outcast so you can play its missions on Academy, I was wondering if it would be ok to release those scripts. I'm afraid Lucas Arts might not like that.

Go ahead and release the scripts both games can be modded so I don't see what would be wrong with it.

Hi just wanted to let all those Battlefront fans know that there is a page on facebook with 5,500 likes called "Who Else Wants Star Wars Battlefront III ?" The aim is to get Lucasarts to notice what fans actually want. If you wish to show your support simply log onto Facebook and go to the page and click Like.

Gaming websites have taken notice and even written articles so Lucasarts can see and every like that the page gets is another step towards Battlefront 3 being developed.

Thanks :)

I know but Lucasarts can hand over or create a new Battlefront 3 with a different gaming company. If they see we want it and they can gain enough from making it then i am sure they will see sense.
