Did You Know?


In the demo version, you can overhear two Stormtroopers talk, about the difference between regular Blaster rifles and Carbine ones, and at the end of it, one of them mentions being transferred to the Cairn installation. In the full version of the game, this same conversation is heard... during the player's time in the Cairn installation. See more »


Desann: You? You're the legendary hero who killed Jerec at the Valley Of The Jedi? You look like nothing more than a bantha herder.
Kyle Katarn: And you look like an overgrown Kowakian monkey-lizard, so I guess looks don't count for much.

A classic Star Wars tale.

Kyle Katarn first popped up on the Star Wars scene during "Star Wars: Dark Forces", a rather innovative first person shooter made by Lucasarts some 10 years ago. We learn that it was Kyle Katarn who delivered the Death Star schematics to the rebellion. During his first time in the spotlight, he stopped the Empire's plot to create the next generation of super troopers, called that Dark Trooper project.

Kyle returned two years later in Dark Forces 2 to avenge his father and stop the Dark Jedi Jerec and his acolytes from discovering the hidden Valley of the Jedi. Katarn learned to use the force and confronted the Dark Jedi and his 6 minions and was able to stop them, but Kyle nearly turned to the Dark Side in the process. He turned in his Lightsaber and returned to his mercenary ways with his trusted companion Jan Ors.

Several years passed and Kyle returned in Jedi Outcast. While working on a mission for the New Republic, Kyle stumbles onto a plot which will surely mean the end of the New Jedi Order and the New Republic. To save the galaxy, Kyle must once again relearn to master the force to be able to confront the new Dark Jedi, Desann. But can he wield the force safely without falling to the Dark Side forever? One of the best story driven first person shooters available today. Even if you are not an avid fan of the Star Wars franchise, you will love this game.
