Default Obsidian Artist - Recreating first level of Dark Forces

November 17th, 2017, 22:32
DSOGaming reports that an artist for Obsidian is recreating the first level of Dark Forces in Unreal Engine 4.

Jason Lewis, Senior Environment Artist at Obsidian Entertainment, has been experimenting with Unreal Engine 4. Lewis is currently recreating the first level from the 1999 Star Wars game, Dark Forces, in Epic’s Engine and shared some comparison screenshots between the original and his WIP project. And the results are amazing.

What’s also cool is that Lewis has added a new starting area that wasn’t in the original game.

More information.

That would be cool to play that game with newer graphics. Still not too bad to play with the vanilla graphics!

That would be 1994. Dark Forces was such a amazing game back then. The beginning of more complex first person games. I liked how it was the story of a ex Imp soldier in the rebellion and didn't have any force magic stuff going on. Interesting perspective and LucasArts was at their peak.

It reminds me of the abandoned Dark Forces mod for Jedi Academy. They had several missions rebuilt and functional.

Simultaneously cool and frustrating.

Dark Forces and Jedi Outcast were great!
"… thing about Morrowind is we did far more than we could, far less polished than we should. It's a miracle that it works at all… there's too much, and it's like jazz… a product like Oblivion - far better software… but Morrowind… oh there's so much delicious nonsense in that." ~ words of wisdom by K.Rolston

LOved it when there was a mod recreating Dark Forces in the Jedi Knight II and then the Jedi Academy engine … always up to replay Dark Forces!
