Jedi Knight II source code released to mark LucasArts’ passing

Thursday, 4th April 2013 02:01 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Raven Software has released the sourcecode for Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy to mark the closure of LucasArts today. “We loved and appreciated the experience of getting to make Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy for LucasArts. As a gift to the persistently loyal fanbase for our Jedi games and in memory of LucasArts, we are releasing the source code for both games for people to enjoy and play with,” the developer told Kotaku. I can’t wait to see what modders and garage devs do with this delightful present.

    Good show, Raven. JK2:JO remains one of my all-time favourite games.

    Part of my childhood died with Lucas Arts. I don’t know if I like Disney anymore.

    Do this with Republic Commando and we’ll be in business.

    @1: Absolutely agree. I don’t know how often I played through JK2. It was extermely motivating to play it on higher difficultys. If you learn how to use every stance and move of your sword, you were able to kill every enemy on highest difficulty very fast without even loosing any HP.
    JK3 was absolutely rubbish compared to it.
