Shadow Art Games is currently working on a fan remake of Star Wars Dark Forces in Unreal Engine 4, and has released the first gameplay footage from it. In the two following videos, we get to see the player fighting some stormtroopers in one of the game’s environments.
Now as you will immediately notice, this unofficial Star Wars Dark Forces Remake is still in a very early stage. From what we can tell, the team has created only this environment. However, it appears that the AI is working fine (at least for the most part), which is a big deal here.
Do also note that this fan remake has nothing to do with another Star Wars Dark Forces project we previously reported on. So yeah, there are actually two Star Wars Dark Forces Remakes in Unreal Engine 4.
The second Star Wars Dark Forces Remake in Unreal Engine 4 is being created by Jason Lewis, senior environment artist at Obsidian Entertainment. The last update on that project was back in 2019. Thus, we don’t know when – and if – Obsidian’s artist will be able to complete it.
It will be also interesting to see whether Disney or EA will shut this latest Star Wars project down. We also don’t know whether Shadow Art Games plans to release a playable tech demo to everyone.
Anyway, enjoy the following gameplay videos and stay tuned for more!
