I never got a chance to play them either, but you would think Academy would come out first being the first game?

Academy is actually the third Jedi Knight game, fourth in the series after Dark Forces, Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight and Jedi Knight 2.

 

There's also an Expansion for Dark Forces 2 called Mysteries of The Sith where you play with Luke's wife, Mara Jade.

This is fantastic news that I never thought I would hear! Jedi Outcast and Academy are what I consider to be a very high bar for Star Wars action games that hasn't been topped since. Maybe there is some hope that we will get a KOTOR remaster some day 😁

A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

What the literal hell. JA is one of the very few games--you can count 'em on a Simpsons character's hand--whose online multiplayer mode I've sank an inordinate amount of time into. Singleplayer, despite its dated clunkiness, is still a good time.

 

Pleasant walk down old memory lane, this.

My dreams of Republic Commando are one step closer to reality.

I always wanted these for Xbox back in my high school days when they originally cameout (SO many great Star Wars games released that gen), but even back then collectors snapped them both up, so availablity was scarce and second prices where VERY high as a result.

 

I later got both these games on steam (along with practically everyother Star Wars game), but they dont have controller support at all. 

 

So I think I'll have to get the PS4 versions so I can fanally ejoy what were considered THE BEST Star War games ever made at the time (this was before KOTOR).

Here’s hoping they won’t remove dismemberment.

Multiplayer in this games are awesome, I hope they port game with multilpayer. It's still active on PC because how good it was. I just hope they make game run [email protected] with comfortable gamepad controls. I've played on PC on gamepad and it was..not good :)

kinda disappointed its not a sequel or a remake, but its a joy that these classics are getting the attention they deserve. Star wars game reached in the early to mid 2000s are great. Now just waiting for the Republic commando game (series) revaltilized

I am so hyped. I've managed to play Jedi Academy in the past and invested so much into the splitscreen, but I never got around to playing Outcast. But you know what this could possibly mean, the next step up afterwards is naturally bringing the KOTOR games to the PS4.

Awesome news. I think these were already rumored to come at some point. Both Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy are among my favorite Star Wars games. Played both of them in my PC back in the day. Nothing like throwing Stormtroopers out of a cliff with force choke or, my favorite, zapping everyone in sight with a level 3 force lightning. Those were the days. :awesome: Even the guns were fun to use in first-person mode. The Stouker concussion rifle was awesome to blast people with lol.

 

Here's hoping both of them will have an appropriate, reasonably challenging trophy list when they land on PS4. :D

I would kill for a KOTOR 2 remaster, the first one is good but I strongly prefer the second.

I've played the fan remaster of KOTOR 2, which steam thoughtfully bundles the mod and game together by default when you purchase it on their store: 1080p/1440p/4K, Widescreen, HD textures, cut-content restored, controller support - it's a beautiful thing.

Pretty cool. Still waiting on KOTOR. It is on iOS and Android for crying out loud.

You aren't joking are you?

Jedi Outcast and Academy are really coming to PS4?

FUCK. YES!!!!

For those who didn't play these absolute MARVELS on PC, let me tell you : Jedi Outcast and Academy have THE BEST LIGHTSABER COMBAT from all Jedi games EVER! 

Jesus Christ my heart can't take this news xD I officially want these games more than Cyberpunk or whatever they are bringing in 2020. Platinum,100%, I don't care I WANT THESE ON PS4. Time to Kyle Katarn people.

I need to resupply the salt reserves from using the butterfly in Academy online xD Damn this made my day better. Lowkey means that KOTOR 1 and 2 have a chance too.

 

How come EA and Disney are ok with reviving games from the old Universe btw? That's a shocker. Maybe because the newest star wars movies suck ass?

Seriously, I don't need remakes or remasters. Just a few stable and reasonably priced ports. There are so many choice Star Wars games from the 6th generation to choose from.

 

Aspyr, the company behind these upcoming releases also worked on the Steam version of KOTOR 1& 2. I wonder if they'll port more games in the future?

Oh yes. Can't wait to jump back into playing  Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy again.

I love playing those games for moments like this.

Oh I am so fucking ready. Now they just need to get Republic Commando over to the PS4 and I can die happily :)

 

Edit: and KotOR. We're not gonna get the OG Battlefront 2, so no point wishing that could happen.

The only Battlefront 2 is the OG Battlefront 2. We do not speak of the sithspit.
