The official announcement trailer for Star Wars: Dark Forces Remastered was released on August 24, 2023, during the Gamescom Opening Night Live event. The trailer shows off the game’s updated visuals, which include 4K resolution, 120fps framerate, and improved lighting and textures. It also features new gameplay footage, including lightsaber combat and Force powers.
The game is being developed by Nightdive Studios, the same team that remastered the classic games Quake II and System Shock. It is being published by Lucasfilm Games. Star Wars: Dark Forces Remastered is scheduled to be released later this year for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
The original Star Wars: Dark Forces was released in 1995 and was one of the first first-person shooters set in the Star Wars universe. It was a critical and commercial success, and helped to popularize the genre. The game was followed by two sequels, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith.
It is a classic game that deserves a new lease on life. The updated visuals look great, and the new gameplay footage looks promising.
