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.

PROGRESS REPORT: 11/13/2018

This report will be going over what you can expect to see in the next update.

TWO NEW MISSIONS

Today we're pleased to officially announce our next two missions.

Our first mission, developed by Linken, will depict the final fight in Return of the Jedi between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Keeping with the tradition of playing different characters, Luke vs. Vader, which will be later dubbed as "Father vs. Son", will allow you to play as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine.

Our next mission, a direct result of our recent community feedback poll, will take place during Revenge of the Sith. Developed by team member Darth Voiid, you will be able to experience Operation: Knightfall, the beginning of the end of the Jedi Order. Operation: Knightfall will give you the choice of playing as 3 characters; Darth Vader, Cin Drallig, and a 501st Legion Clone Trooper.

REVAN VS. MALAK

Changes have been made to the Revan vs. Malak bonus mission, and will be available with the next update. Aside from some minor bug fixes, the biggest change to the mission is that Revan will no longer be a mute. His voice will now be provided by Kevin Smets, the voice of Logan Starr/Revan in the KOTOR Trilogy series on YouTube.

NEW CHARACTERS

Internally in the team, we are currently putting together a new batch of characters for you to be able to choose from. As we want to release a large number of characters at once, the new characters we have presently will not be available in the next update. New characters will include Darth Zannah, Serra Keto, Siri Tachi, and Emperor Vitiate, with more on the way.

MULTIPLAYER BOTS

Production on the heavily requested multiplayer bots has begun. Like the selection of new characters, the bots will not be available in the next update. We will be attempting to add as many bots as possible with an easier way to select which bots you want to play with. Adding botroutes to maps thus far has not begun development and will take up a lot of time. If anyone with experience would like to volunteer to add botroutes to the maps currently in the mod, we would be incredibly grateful.

CONCLUSION

To finalize what was stated above, here is our current roadmap for our next 2 updates.

UPDATE 1: Luke vs. Vader (ROTJ), Operation: Knightfall (ROTS), Revan vs. Malak fixes, misc fixes.

UPDATE 2: 2 new missions, new characters, multiplayer bots, language translations, Duel of the Fates fixes.

Thank you for following the development of Knights of the Force 2.1, and may the Force be with you.

Are Quake III: Arena playermodels compatible with this game?

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.

You have to buy it from Steam or Amazon. It's not for free, and providing it for free on any website that doesn't own it would be illegal.
