Star Wars fans, here is something for you today. YouTube’s ‘ackehallgren’ has recreated the Rimmer’s Rest from Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II in Unreal Engine 4. Contrary to other fan remakes, though, this project is available for download.
As the title suggests, this fan remake will let you explore the Rimmer’s Rest. It’s a cool and faithful recreation, and we are certain that some Star Wars fans will find it interesting.
You can download this project from here. In case you don’t want to download it, you can find below a video that compares the original version with this remake. This comparison video perfectly showcases the graphical differences between these two versions, so make sure to watch it.
Now in case you are wondering, ackehallgren does not currently plan to recreate any other maps/environments. So yeah, don’t expect a full-fledged remake of Dark Forces 2.
As a bonus, I’ve also included below a new gameplay video from another project that attempts to remake the first Dark Forces game in Unreal Engine 4.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
