Star Wars is back with Dark Forces Remastered

It’s been the best part of thirty years since STAR WARS: Dark Forces tried to revolutionise the gaming world. Now, that same game has been reworked and remastered, becoming available on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC. Will you be using the force found in STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster?

A remastering of a Star Wars classic

Available right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, as well as PlayStation, Switch and PC, is Nightdive Studios’ STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster. Priced at £24.99 from the Xbox Store (expect similar elsewhere), it brings that old original game kicking and screaming into 2024. 

A first person shooter that places you in the role of Kyle Katarn, a mercenary for hire, STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster will see you joining the Rebel Alliance’s most covert division. From there, a Dark Trooper Project is uncovered and you find yourself tasked with putting an end to the Empire’s control. 

Back in 1995 when STAR WARS: Dark Forces was first released, this game managed to turn the FPS genre on its head, offering up ideas never before seen. And now, in 2024 it has been updated to ensure a fit with the modern gaming world. 

It’s all been done by the power of Nightdive Studios, as they work their magic. The KEX engine works wonders here, as STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster features upgraded gameplay, high-res texturing, better lighting and more. And of course, as it launches on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC, it adds in full controller support. 

Buy the Remaster now!

If you’re a Star Wars fan looking for a new fix, or just want to see how Nightdive have reworked things, you should be heading to a digital store near you for a STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster download.

Our favourite spot is that of the Xbox Store. STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster is then playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, with full Series optimisation. 

You’ll also find the game on storefronts for PlayStation, Switch and PC. 

STAR WARS: Dark Forces Remaster Description 

Star Wars™: Dark Forces Remaster has been brought to life by the team at Nightdive Studios, fully remastered through its proprietary KEX engine. New and returning players will enjoy Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster’s upgraded gameplay, high-resolution textures, enhanced lighting and rendering, and support for gamepads.

The original 1995 Star Wars: Dark Forces raised the bar for FPS games, offering players a significant degree of movement and interactivity, a large selection of items and power-ups, and engaging environments.

In the first Star Wars FPS video game, players assume the role of Kyle Katarn, a defector of the Galactic Empire turned mercenary for hire. Katarn joins the Rebel Alliance’s covert operations division tasked with infiltrating the Galactic Empire, where he discovers the secret Dark Trooper Project. The development of this powerful new series of Imperial battle droids and power-armored stormtroopers stands to strengthen the Empire’s grip on the galaxy unless Katarn and the Rebel Alliance intervene.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
