This may be unrelated to the Jedi Knight series, but there is a game in development called Advent Rising, and your character will have psi abilities that grow stronger as the game progresses. I think I've mentioned the game before, because you will be able to levitate objects - and if you watch the trailer available from the official site you will see some nice acrobatic moves, along with what looks like a Force Push move right at the end.

Although it has a cartoony appearance, it's pretty stylish, and the character animation is very good. That is the sort of quality I would want to see in a potential JK4.

I believe Advent Rising is using Unreal tech as a foundation.
