Star Wars: Dark Forces remaster announced 23 Aug, 2023 / 1 comment

2023 continues to belt out its remastered games, with this week's flavour being 1995's Star Wars: Dark Forces. Check the reveal trailer here:


The remaster is being handled by Nightdive Studios, who recently released a "benchmark" quality remaster with Quake II. It's releasing on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Steam, promised to be in 4K and 120 FPS (FPS in this context means "the new 'omg gr@phics!!!'").

Dark Forces is an FPS that has you blasting through Star Destroyers, Coruscant, and a yacht as a guy with the overtly sci-fi fantasy name "Kyle". Kyle's job? To "battle every man and machine the Imperial Forces can muster" in order to stop the rise of "a doomsday army - one that, if finished, will become the final cog in the Empire's arsenal of terror and domination."

I think the original trilogy answered this tantalising "will they/won't they" (as in "will they/won't they singlehandedly destroy every man and machine the Imperial Army can muster, or will it show up in the movies?"), but I doubt you're signing-up for this for story, anyway.

More info as it becomes available.
