Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster Release Date Announced
Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster finally has an official release date.
Developer Nightdive Studios, the same studio behind the System Shock remake as well as the Quake remasters, has announced that the game will launch on February 28, 2024. It’ll be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
First launched for MS-DOS in 1995, the remaster of the classic first-person shooter will see all 14 original levels return with modern designs and visuals. The game will also support up to 4K/120 FPS.
“The original 1995 Star Wars: Dark Forces raised the bar for first-person shooter games, offering players a significant degree of movement and interactivity, a large selection of items and power-ups, and engaging environments,” Nightdive Studios said.
For those that don’t remember, or never knew about Star Wars: Dark Forces, the game sees you take on the role of Kyle Katarn, a defector of the Galactic Empire.
“Katarn joins the Rebel Alliance’s covert operations division tasked with infiltrating the Galactic Empire, where he discovers the secret Dark Trooper Project,” the game’s description reads. “The development of this powerful new series of Imperial battle droids and power-armored stormtroopers stands to strengthen the Empire’s grip on the galaxy unless Katarn and the Rebel Alliance intervene.”
