    Listen. Obiwankenoibi-ben KYLE IS IN THE GAME. OK. Understand? Good.

    As for whether the game is a hoax, as I said I'm 80/20 thinking it's real, but I'll just wait for a press release on lucasarts.com before I get too excited.

    The real odd thing for me is that the release of this game will conflict with the marketing for Galaxies and KOTOR, which is mighty strange.

    "Can Raven comment on this?

    It is real - not an April Fools joke...
    "



    That last comment was made by a Raven Senior Staff Member over at the link that _Darth_Vega_ provided! :D Looks like this thing is real! w00000h00000000! :D



    P.S. Though JP's right, it's weird of them to release it at the same time as Galaxies and KOTOR. I guess the floodgates of goodwill and good games at LucasArts have broken loose for this fall. :D (even though I'm only getting KOTOR and JKIII. :D )

    It'd be great if JK3 would have manual defense that the user would need to do, not the automatic ones in JK2.

    Raven would not go along with this if it were a joke. That would be terrible business practice.

    I too don't believe this is a joke, IGN ran a story on it today:

    [link=http://pc.ign.com/articles/391/391590p1.html]Jedi Knight III[/link]

    The whole create-your-own character with non-linear gameplay thing sounds promising...

    You guys should really check out [link=http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=95808&perpage=40&pagenumber=1]this thread[/link] at JKII.net's LucasForum for the lowdown on the game. ChangKhan[RAVEN] (Mike Gummelt, lead gameplay designer - great guy) is answering questions in the thread. [link=http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=1091144#post1091144]Go right to his post.[/link]

    -It is indeed a full game, not an expansion. May not be JKIII, as the DF series follows Kyle Katarn.

    We are planning on adding one entirely new MP game type, but we're not discussing it right now...

    THE SUSPENSE IS GOING TO KILL ME.

    The lead gameplay designer is posting on JKII.net. It is not a hoax, for heaven's sake. He CONFIRMED beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are making it.

    I don't believe that is proof of a hoax... it just means the people who run the site are lazy. If you look at the X-Men game on there, it says the same thing. They probably just used it as a template and forgot to remove the X-Men stuff.

    W000000000000000H000000000000! But I also agree with Dane. [face_suspenseiskillingme]


    But, I dunno, there were two "new Multiplayer gameplay modes" announced for Jedi Outcast. They were the oh-so-fun-and-original, Jedi Holocron and Jedi Master. [sarcasm] woohoo. [/sarcasm]

    So, my point is, this "entirely new MP mode" will probably not be what we're hoping for (Co-Op and/or Team-Based stuff). :(

    Jedi Master is actually a pretty fun game mode, but no one plays it.

    The [link=http://www.gamestar.de/reklawyks/secret-jk3/]link[/link] was activated, if you have the right code you can win Jedi Outcast plus the newest issue of Gamestar.
    Nothing about JK3.

    I know the code, but I already own it.

    Well I'm totally excited about this game. As far as it interfering with KTOR or Galaxies, I seriously doubt that JK3 will really be out this year. More likely it will be out next spring so it wont interefere with the other two. Of course this is all just MHO.

    This is amusing to read, my boyfriend is an artist at Raven working on the game in question and it definitely exists. I have been seeing art for it for the past 6 months. I guess some people can't believe a thing till it shows up in the AMERICAN gaming magazines, even if Raven confirms it. The premise as I understand it is that you are a student of Kyle Katarn at a Jedi academy and you go through various training missions. You get to pick your character's gender, species, skin color, separate elements of clothing, etc, with a huge number of possible combinations. At least one level takes place on Tatooine fighting sand people and Jawas. In another you fight a rancor. In another you fight Boba Fett. There are some fighting innovations but I don't know a lot about that. There was initially a question about whether this would be marketed as an "expansion pack" to JK2 or its own game, but fortunately once Lucasarts (which still controls the direction of the marketing) saw the most recent build they were convinced that it was different enough and cool enough to succeed as its own thing. I haven't even read the information that is out there so I have no idea if any of this is news. This is more or less all I know about it, I'm not a gaming person.

    To the person who doubted it would be out this year, I think it's supposed to be out some time this summer. Definitely not next spring.

    Yeah, I know that's what they said (and I hope that it really happens, believe me!) but just from past experience with Raven (and about every other gaming company out there) projected release dates just don't mean much. Usually the games just don't come out on the projected release date. That's why I think it will be out next year and not this. But, let's hope I'm wrong! :D
