This mod for a 20-year-old Star Wars game recreates the series' iconic duels with its best lightsaber combat

1 Share

First released in 2009, the absolutely massive Jedi Academy mod Movie Duels dropped its sixth major update at the beginning of January. The project aims to recreate iconic lightsaber duels from throughout Star Wars history with Jedi Academy's peerless lightsaber combat system.

The Jedi Knight games have some weird DNA that led to their excellent saber combat. The series came from FPS devs, first at LucasArts, then Raven, and approaches saber combat differently from most brawler-style takes, with a starting point closer to classic FPS melee weapons like Gordon Freeman's crowbar or the Doomguy's chainsaw. 

Instead of a weighty sword and sticky lock-on feel, the Jedi Knight games are almost more about pure positioning, with your saber just ruining whatever it comes in contact with. Add in the games' intuitive, automatic parrying, and you've got a lightsaber fighting system that just feels like nothing else⁠—except maybe the upcoming Fortune's Run.

I didn't even realize there was anyone making single player Jedi Academy mods like this, and at first glance parsed Movie Duels as a simple map and model pack. I dusted off my Steam version of Jedi Academy, downloaded the whopping three-file, eight gigabyte mod, and dropped everything in the Game Data folder of my Jedi Academy install (the mod handily runs off its own .exe in there).

And quite frankly? This thing rocks. The first map I loaded into was a recreation of the Star Forge observation deck, the final boss arena from Knights of the Old Republic. There's nothing to do here at the moment, but it will likely feature in an upcoming KotOR-themed duel pack hinted at in the mod's UI. 

My first proper duel was a recreation of the edgy, rad, and supremely non canon Obi Wan Kenobi/Darth Maul rematch on Tatooine depicted in the comic Old Wounds. Jedi Academy's combat is as fun as ever, and the modders added some spice here by having Maul's arm get cut off in a scripted sequence halfway through, mirroring the events of the comic. Don't worry though, I still got that doofy hall monitor Obi Wan in the end.

For a final test run, I loaded into Mace Windu vs. Palpatine from Revenge of the Sith as the purple team. This one was a bit jankier, with an unskippable cutscene preceeding and what seems like a massive health bar on old Sheev P. I accidentally killed Kit Fisto before getting my melon chopped off by the spritely old man. Maybe I'll try again another day.

I've definitely only scratched the surface here⁠—there's all this movie content and some fights from The Force Unleashed, as well as newly-added remastered duels from 1997's Dark Forces: Jedi Knight. I've also neglected to mention the most exciting inclusion: Movie Duels has scooped EA by three months, letting you play as buff, "Punished" Cal Kestis from the upcoming Jedi Survivor. You heard right Cal Kestis heads, everyone's favorite Star Wars protagonist is here!

My man even gives Jaden Korr a run for his money in the charisma department, and the two legends can finally chop each other's heads off in the same game. You can check out Movie Duels on ModDB, and be sure to keep an eye out for future content additions and bug fixes.

Dead Island 2's all-new skill deck is the "most exciting addition to the game"

1 Share

Dambuster Studios has opened up on one of the "most exciting" new features coming to Dead Island 2: the skill deck.

Talking to Game Informer (thanks, NME), creative director James Worrall and lead narrative designer Khan confirmed that the long-awaited - and often postponed - sequel will take place in Los Angeles a full decade after the original game.

The team said that LA will almost be a character itself due to "the amazing eccentrics and self-confidence of the city", and believes that the skill tree will be "one of - if not the most - exciting addition to the game".

The admission came when Khan was asked if there was a skill tree and instead replied with: "There's a skill deck… which is even better.

"The art is amazing, and they're fun to look at and all of that, but they're just really fun to play with. [You can] change skills mid-air; you can take off, change a skill, and land with a different loadout, and that's just amazing."

"And you can take some real risks with your loadout as well," Worrall added. "It really pays off… and sometimes, goes horribly wrong."

"After eight years and three studios, Dead Island 2 is pretty much what you get if you Google 'development hell'," we wrote on our Dead Island 2 hands-on preview. "It's been fully restarted by the current custodian Dambuster Studios, and it seems to be doing a great job. 

"[The development team] could not be drawn to talk much about the missing years or other studios [b]ut, from what I've played of Dead Island 2, the work seems to have paid off. My brief time smacking undead on the beach suggested a stylish and surprisingly fun zombie apocalypse. One that's more a comedy adventure than the grim 'is man is the real monster?' stuff we've had recently. Which, after a real pandemic and just the general state of the world right now, is probably what we need."

We found out late last year that Dead Island 2 had once again been delayed and will now release 12 weeks later than planned on April 28, 2023

Here are all the new games of 2023 (and beyond).

17-year-old D&D Online is getting a 'mini expansion' this year

1 Share

First spotted by Massively Overpowered, Standing Stone Games, developer of the long-running D&D-based MMO, Dungeons & Dragons Online, just revealed its 2023 roadmap for the game. Standing Stone is celebrating D&D Online's 17th anniversary with a new free dungeon and three character archetypes, as well as a "mini-expansion" launching sometime between April and June.

D&D Online 2023 roadmap showing Snowpeaks Festival, Update 58, and 17th Anniversary in Q1, Mini-expansion and Forum update in Q2, Hardcore Season 8, Droaam and Raid Update, and Crystal Cove in Q3, and Night Revals, Adventure Pack, Hardcore Season 9, and Festivult in Q4 of the year

(Image credit: Standing Stone Games)

D&D Online news is a bit of a blast from the past for me⁠—I was still in middle school when this game first launched in 2006! Initially focused on D&D's Eberron Campaign Setting, the game expanded in 2012 to include content for the juggernaut Forgotten Realms, home of Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter. Stewardship of the game was transferred from original developer Turbine to Standing Stone in 2016, and D&D Online has continued to see steady support. Its last expansion, Isle of Dread, was released last June.

The centerpiece of D&D Online's 2023 plans is Vecna Unleashed, that aforementioned mini-expansion and follow-up to the MMO's ongoing story. Vecna, for those who need a brush-up on their D&D lore (how dare you) is a super archvillain lich bugaboo with origins in Gary Gygax's original Greyhawk campaign setting. The nasty boy has since cropped up in other settings like Ravenloft and Forgotten Realms, and you may recall snagging his enchanted pajamas second hand in Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights.

To tackle Vecna, D&D Online has you teaming up with the Eberron-based adventurer/archeologist academy Morgrave University. My colleague, PC Gamer contributor Jon Bolding, described the plot setup as "basically Indiana Jones vs. The Multiverse-Traveling Lich King," so that sounds pretty neat.

Even though I'm not a D&D Online player myself, there's still something so heartening about seeing this generation of late '00s, early '10s MMOs continue to soldier on, even as contemporaries like Tabula Rasa closed shop while more recently-launched live service games like Marvel's Avengers and Anthem have already entered an end-of-life, unsupported state. 

My favorite of this classic MMO cohort is probably the fan-made Star Wars Galaxies Revival, which is keeping that ambitious, beloved MMO alive in the 2020s. Meanwhile, Galaxies' killer, my dear old friend The Old Republic, is also keeping the dream alive. Its last full expansion, Legacy of the Sith, dropped in 2021, while TOR got a Mandalorian-focused content update, Showdown on Rhunuk, just last month.

Bungie reveals technical culprit behind Destiny's vanished triumphs and 20-hour downtime

1 Share

In the company's This Week at Bungie or TWAB update, the Destiny developer clarified the series of events that led to a number of players missing in-game titles, a bug that required a rollback of player progress and 20 hours of downtime for the popular looter shooter/MMO/Guardian-em-up game (credit to Massively Overpowered for the spot).

On January 24, a number of Destiny players logged in to find the unthinkable had happened: their triumphs were gone! All those achievements, precious 'cheevos, lost to time, like tears in rain. All jokes aside, this is a major bummer in a game where some triumphs and seals require absolutely herculean trials to earn, while others are tied to legacy content and can no longer be acquired.

The bug ultimately required a rollback of player accounts to their state on the morning of January 24, with players losing any progress they'd made in the three-hour window after Destiny's regular weekly refresh. Not the end of the world then, losing a couple hours of progress made on a Tuesday morning, but shout out to that one person on Reddit who secured the coveted exotic combat bow Hierarchy of Needs within the perdition window.

"We discovered that the issue was caused when some currently incompletable EDZ and Nessus Triumphs were moved from Forsaken into the archived Triumphs section," Bungie explained in the TWAB. "To make that change, we used a tool that can move player state from one location to another in the player’s account. This tool is very powerful but requires careful and cautious handling."

That forbidden and powerful dev tool was apparently still configured for when Bungie was seriously rejiggering the game for 2020's Beyond Light expansion. The team accidentally brought forward pre-Beyond Light data, which conflicted with and overwrote progress players had made since that time.
