Jedi Knight Galaxies is an innovative multiplayer shooter, played out in the Star Wars universe. Currently a full conversion mod, the project was originally based on and modified from Raven Software’s Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. We aim to develop the project into a Large Multiplayer Online game, crossing traditional RPG (role playing game) elements with the fast paced excitement of an FPS (first person shooter).
The project will be released in phases, each building on to the previous one with more aspects of the final goal. The current Phase, JKG: Versus, was released September 17th, 2012 as a public beta, showcasing the primary FPS elements of the game. As development progresses, sandbox environments will be added, initial RPG elements will appear, and player vs. enemy combat will be implemented into the faction oriented gameplay. Improved dialog and cinematic features along with skills, powers, and more aspects that belong in a Role-Play Game will be developed, set around the events of Episode IV: A New Hope. Finally, the full-fledged JKG: LMO takes the experience to a much grander level.
The game is supported by its community and developers, contribution is encouraged and newbies are welcome. Originally founded by a group of Jedi Academy modders led by Jake, the project has since been in and out of development since 2008.
