This project aims to recreate the levels and playing experience of the LucasArts game Dark Forces using the modern 3D engine found in the game Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy.

We will be re-creating all 14 levels found in the original game and bringing them into the 21st century.

Given the capabilities of the modified Quake 3 engine this project is very exciting indeed. Weapons, enemies and models will be re-created aswell as other features of the original game.

Soon you'll be playing Dark Forces with gorgeous visuals, brilliant effects and fantastic playability!

  • As Kyle Katarn, mercenary and agent of the Rebel Alliance, infiltrate the secret Imperial base to steal the plans for the Death Star and travel to distant locations as you track down clues to unravel the mystery of the Dark Trooper.
  • Choose wisely from an arsenal of weapons including Bryar Pistol, Imperial Blaster, Thermal Detonator, Imperial Repeater, Fusion Cutter, Anti-personnel Mines, Mortar Gun, Concussion Rifle, and the Dark Trooper Assault Cannon.
  • Test your skills in 14 greatly enhanced missions
  • Interact with legendary Star Wars characters such as Storm Troopers, Imperial Commandos, Gammorean Guards, Dianogas, Boba Fett, Grans, Trandoshans, Jabba the Hutt, Kell Dragons, and of course all 3 iterations of the fearsome Dark Trooper.
  • Hear the original music exactly as the composer intended.
  • Powered by a modified version of the widely acclaimed Quake 3: Team Arena engine, you'll enjoy the game as never before with high resolution graphics, hardware accelerated performance, true 3D environments, stunning sound and music effects, and in-engine cutscenes which complete the entire 14 mission story.

36% completed after 5 years, and no updates since April this year. I think it's dead :( Pity, it was very promising - at least when it was first around. If this is ever does get released, it'll be when JK3 looks so dated there'll be no point anyway...

Its 2007 now, and i visit their hp often. And the building process seemed to slowed down incredibly, nearly halted. I hope they dont cancel it, they really need more guys to help them. Damm i would even spend money for this, if there was a paypal button. Maybe Moddb can do somethin to keep them going ?

Its a great mod i enjoyed the original very much so it would be a great loss if the df mod would be canceled.
