Apple Previews Jedi Knight II
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Apple continues to show their support for the Mac games industry with their latest preview, which takes a look at the upcoming title Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (JK2). One of the more recent Star Wars-related games to see release, JK2 puts gamers in the shoes of Kyle Katarn, who resurrects his Jedi past in order to battle the remnants of the Galactic Empire.

Gamers interested in the details of JK2 will find plenty at Apple's preview. There are full listings and pictures of available weapons, Force powers, enemies, and even cheat codes. There are also some stunning screenshots showing JK2 in action that are sure to get any Star Wars fan salivating.

Michael Rogers of Aspyr seems particularly thrilled with the multiplayer aspect of JK2:

You can have multi-player battles with only the lightsaber and one or two Force powers. It really changes the pacing and strategies of deathmatch games, and itís incredibly cool to see a big fight with all the lightsabers slashing and being thrown all over the room.
Westlake Interactive, the company currently handling the Mac port of this title, announced JK2's official beta status earlier this week. Though a solid release date has yet to be set, we're all hoping that we'll see this one sooner rather than later. In the meantime, check Apple's preview for more drool-worthy information on this title.
