Jedi Knight Galaxies is a competitive 1st Person/3rd Person multiplayer shooter, played out in the Star Wars universe. Currently a full conversion mod, the project was originally based on and modified from Raven Software’s Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Jedi Knight Galaxies is open source and available completely free of charge; however, you will need the original game in order to play. (Jedi Academy is frequently available on Steam and GoG during sales for less than $4). We aim to develop the project into a Large Multiplayer Online game, crossing traditional RPG (role-playing game) elements with the fast paced excitement of an FPS (first person shooter) and the team experiences of both cooperative (co-op) and competitive multiplayer. The game is inspired by titles like Jedi Academy, Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars Galaxies, and Star Wars Battlefront, among others.

The project will be released in phases, each building on to the previous one with more aspects of the final goal. The current Phase, JKG: Versus, was first released September 17th, 2012 as a public beta, showcasing the primary FPS elements of the game. Subsequent updates and versions have been produced since then. As development continues, sandbox environments will be added, initial RPG elements will appear, and player vs. enemy combat will be implemented into the faction oriented gameplay. Improved dialog and cinematic features along with melee and lightsaber combat, new abilities, skill trees, force powers, additional game modes, dynamic quests, and more aspects that belong in a RPG will be developed. Finally, the full-fledged JKG: LMO takes the experience to a much grander level, tying everything together in an engaging cooperative story set between the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.

The game is a much loved hobby project supported by its community and developers who work on it in their freetime, contribution is encouraged and newbies are welcome. Originally founded by a group of Jedi Academy modders led by Jake (now retired), the project has since been in and out of development since 2008. The current development team comes from a variety of backgrounds, countries, and age, united by our desire to make a great game and love for Star Wars.
