Mac game publisher
offered up some new screenshots of its latest major work in progress, the conversion of the 3D action game Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast.
Published for the PC by LucasArts, Jedi Knight II is currently in the waning stages of conversion at the studios of frequent Aspyr collaborator Westlake Interactive. Westlake and Aspyr anticipate having the game ready sometime this month.
“Blaster fire, AT-ST fights, and colossal lightsaber battles are just a taste of what is coming your way soon,” said Aspyr project manager Chris Silman.
Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is the latest game to take place in the same story line that started with the game “Dark Forces.” A “Star Wars”-licensed game, it’s the story of Kyle Katarn, a Jedi-turned-mercenary who must protect the galaxy from a new threat as he regains his Jedi powers and goes on a series of dangerous missions.
Developed originally by Raven Software using the same technology that powers Quake III Arena, Jedi Knight II is a 3D action game that alternates between first person views and third-person views as you control Katarn through a series of deadly encounters with the last vestiges of the Galactic Empire, dangerous creatures on exotic worlds, and more. You’ll use weapons, Force powers, and your lightsaber as you take on all comers both in single player and online game play.
System requirements call for a PowerPC G3/400MHz, 128MB RAM, 4x CD-ROM, 665MB hard drive space, hardware-based 3D graphics acceleration, and Mac OS 9.1 or later (or Mac OS X 10.1 or later).
