An Elegant Dark Forces for a More Civilised Age

By Luke Plunkett on at

While Unreal Engine remakes of classic games are everywhere you look these days, this 2020 take on Dark Forcesstill 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.
