While Unreal Engine remakes of classic games are everywhere you look these days, this 2020 take on Dark Forces – still the best Star Wars game – has a refreshingly narrow scope, seeking not to overhaul the entire game, but just wonder what it’d look like with a more modern user interface/experience.
Arvydas Brazdeikis – who has done something similar with RISK already – wanted to see what Lucasart’s shooter would look like “with the UI/UX design sensibilities of modern Star Wars titles, like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars: Battlefront.”
Here’s what he came up with:
The Rogue One Mon Mothma is a nice touch. It’s also good seeing the map – and Dark Forces already had a great map – take some cues from Fallen Order.
