E3: Star Wars Jedi Outcast: Jedi Knight II
10:33 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

LucasArts has announced the development of the third in a series of
first-person action games involving ex-Jedi Kyle Katarn. Jedi Outcast™
follows in the tradition of Dark Forces™ and Jedi Knight of delivering
quality action in the Star Wars® universe. LucasArts will develop Jedi
Outcast™ in conjunction with Raven Software using a modified version of the
Quake III engine. It is projected for a Spring 2002 release for Microsoft
Windows.


While there are no plans for a Mac version, as of yet, we are sure that veteran readers of our site will recognize some of the names above -- specifically Raven software (who developed Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force) and LucasArts (who developed just-published Escape from Monkey Island) as well as Quake III Arena. For Mac fans, these are golden names -- the portable Q3A engine has virtually guaranteed the porting of many titles to the Mac OS, including Elite Force and American McGee's Alice. Both of those were published by Aspyr Media; and Aspyr has already published a LucasArts title (EFMI), so as you can see this all adds up to quite a pretty picture. We'll bring you more details on this game from the show floor, of course...
