Any word on if Jedi Knight 2 will have a good original multiplayer ?

I would hate too see Raven do to JD2 what they did to EF. I hope that they don't just copy Quake 2 Arena multiplay with mindless shooting and powerups like "invincibility", "Invisible" and "4x weapon damage" :deathii:

I agree, I don't want a Quake 3 clone either. I seriously doubt this is what JKII will become though, as the lightsaber and Force Powers will add a lot to the already existing MP formula. I expect it to play a little like Rune and the original JK. Hopefully with less focus on jumping though... ;)

where does multiplayer for shooters have left to go?

i mean everything has been done to death.

the only thing left IMO is massive multiplayer.

could you imagine a star wars galaxsies type game....but with firt person controls like in the q3 engine. in cockpit space fighter battles. hyper space jumps, inter galactic bounty hunts, yummm

The JK FF MP was so unique among others, that is why it lasted so long. They'd do much better in copying the origional JK style then by giving us yet another Q3 clone.

i wouldn't want to see another JK clone either.. JK was fun... years ago..

I certainly hope they keep some older features, etc., but I don't want to see them simply remake JK with improved grahpics..

Closest thing to that right now is Planetside, except it's not Star Wars. It's a MMOFPS though, and I think it has a lot of potential.

Jedi Outcast multiplayer is advanced above and beyond what was done in Q3 or Elite Force. The lightsaber combat alone makes it an entirely different animal altogether.

As always, it's a joy to hear from you KISS. As for what you said, I think I might have passed out. Those are the words I've been waiting to hear all these months. I would be happy for a game in which you only fight with lightsabers. I know this is not the case in JKII, but for me at least it will be the most exciting. Once I get my lightsaber, it will not leave my hands for the rest of the game. And multiplayer...lightsaber combat will make it incredible! WOOHOO! :D :D

I was going to mention planetside too
Maybe a FPS addon for galaxies, that would be amazing


Good to hear again from you KISS Army, now I guess we have to wait for the FAQ update for more details about the saber and about the MP modes. Im expecting much more than DM team DM and CTF

Actually, I don't mind the mindless shooting... IMO multiplayer should be intense just like Q3. But as others have said, JK2 won't feel like Q3... it's Star Wars damit!:D

I would like to seea bit of RTCW MP, the Revive ability of the medic would be most welcome as a force power in MP.
