    The Force.net tells us
    James sends us this big news straight from the E3 convention floor!
    BIG NEWS! LucasArts has announced "Star Wars, Jedi Outcast, Jedi Knight II". It's being developed with Raven Software on a modified Quake III engine. It's expected to be released next Spring.
    Look for more on this on Friday

    I hope it is for PC
    Is it?
    YEAH

    Thread title changed to bring it into line with other JO threads, after discussion with Indy3.

    Holy crud, it's true. [face_shocked] I dunno, I like it- but I don't. I'm getting kinda sick of games with lightsabers. This is great... but it's not Bounty Hunter :mad:.

    "Se la vi" (or however you say it :confused: )

    peh, Quake 3 engine. So inflexible. Still, could be Bounty Hunter too. I hope so

    It will surely be a modified Q3 engine, if this is true.

    I will not get my hopes up until Lucasarts officially announces this. Anybody else notice that no other site covering E3 has posted this story? How did James get this info? Don't you think that something as big as JK2 would get a mention on major game sites?

    I'm not too enthused about the QIII engine, but Raven pulled it off with ST:Voyager - Elite Force.

    I'm with ReaperFett on this- Let's hope for a Bounty Hunter type game.

    Dan and I were talking on AIM and we thought it's a possibility (and would be supercool) if let's say Kyle Katarn abandons the Jedi Order to become a bounty hunter....Hence the name Jedi Outcast.

    That'd make for one heckuva storyline... lets keep our hopes up!

    I think the name Outcast definitely expands the storyline speculations. Heh, I wonder if they'll have actors in the cutscenes again.

    I'm not worried about the Q3 engine, I'm sure it will modified. I was sorta kinda hoping for the Doom III engine, but oh well.

    Well, let's look at the guys professional life so far:

    Stormtrooper-officer-in-training
    Rebel Covert Operative
    Mercenary/Pirate
    Rebel SpecForces
    Vengeance-seeking-badass
    Jedi Knight
    Captain, NR Military (army?)
    Fallen Jedi
    Jedi Knight/student at the Praxeum

    Presumably, though it's not confirmed, he's a master by NJO. But he's been frickin' everything else, so I can't see him not being a bounty hunter at some point.

    "Captain, NR Military (army?)"

    Probably Intelligence/espionage, since that was what he was already doing and that's what jan ors was doing.

    "I'm with DUM on this"

    Actually I was saying that Raven has done a good job with the Q3 engine in the past, and I think they can do it again.

    (Edit) Sure Sithy, go ahead and edit your post so mine doesn't make sence. :p

    Yes, just what I wanted. If this takes place in the NJO era that would be bad ass. Maybe the title "Jedi Outcast" is speacking of not only Kyle but maybe Corran Horn as well. He's a Jedi outcast. I think a game in this era could explain a lot about where Kyle has been in the last couple of years.

    As for Bounty Hunters I still think we will see this game.Most of the games centering around EP2 are very hush hush right now I am sure. Remeber we found out about the game from a name of a future web site.

    Why does it have to tie in with EU, anyway?

    I cannot find any "bountyhunter" derived domains held by Lucas.

    Anyone considered that Bounty Hunter may be an expansion pack for Jedi Outcast, to be released further on down the track?

    I'm still betting 1/2 my nerf herd that Kyle *won't* be the main character in this game...

    Oh, and - for all those above who seemed to have missed this...

    From word go, Jedi Outcast has been reported as being derived from a **MODIFIED** Quake3 engine.

    Modified... to the worse? ;)
    I always liked th SW games if they had good gameplay, graphics was never important.
    It probably won't tie in too much with EU. But if it is called Jedi Knight >>2<< you would expect the Jedi Knight protagonist in it. Of course, what you expect means absolutely nothing. Probably. And yes, Mara was #1 in the expansion game, but Kyle was still in it.
    Bounty Hunter an expansion? No, would be too much of a limitation (no force powers unless you play Aurra Sing, and I hope they won't pull that off).

    I hope they are doing this one right, with a good story. Cutscenes won't feature actors, after Force Commander, Alliance and the ep1 games I'm pretty sure they'll never do that again because they are happy with the CG cuts as you don't hav to pay actors...

    EU joke of the day: You play as either Danni Quee or Jorallen, mighty Jedi. ;)

    And by the way, back in France it's << C'est la vie >>.

    It's up!!!!


    "A fallen Jedi
    stuggles with his past,
    his enemies...
    and his destiny."

    The guy looks like either Kyle or Kam Solusar. I'd place my bets on Kyle though. I can't wait for this one!!!!!
