The original Dark Forces might be our Best Star Wars Game Ever, but its sequel is also great. It is, however, a little dated in 2021, so game developer and artist Acke Hallgren decided to see what it could look like with a modern coat of paint.

So here’s the game’s opening level remade in Unreal Engine 4. It’s not playable as a shooter, but you can download it and walk around it yourself if you’d like.


  • I forgot thats how the NPC’s moved around, hasn’t been bested.

    Wished they had chucked this and the first one on the switch when they put the other two on it.

  • Oh my heart. I wish they’d make this official, do it up looking like that. More classics like Dark Forces really deserve the FF7 remake treatment.

  • “Get out of my bar. You always cause trouble.”

    Man, that line is deeply embedded in my memory. I loved this game as a kid.
