Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster Release Date Confirmed - February 28, 2024

Star Wars: Dark Forces is LucasArts’ much-loved first-person shooter originally released in 1995. This remaster, which arrives just shy of 30 years later, is in the works at Nightdive Studios, the video game restoration specialist behind the well-received System Shock remake and Turok and Quake remasters.


This is the first I’ve heard of this remaster. Absolutely adore this game. And I appreciated the work Nightdive put into the new System Shock.

But seeing the screenshots for Dark Forces… it very much looks like a half-ass job using computer-assisted upscaling (possibly some sort of generative AI, too). I’ve played the original using DarkXL/The Force Engine, and I feel like Nightdive is just reproducing this (albeit with “new” cutscene artwork).

I would love to be pleasantly surprised.
