The best Star Wars game now has ray tracing

Whether the best Star Wars game is Knights of the Old Republic, Empire at War, Stellaris, or, er, Civilization 6, we can all agree: Jedi Outcast is the best Star Wars game. (It’s actually still KOTOR but whatever.) Jedi Outcast was a looker back in 2002, but it’s not quite as impressive today – until you add ray tracing to the mix, that is.

Modder Mr Zyanide has made use of the path tracer in Quake 2 RTX to build JK2RTX – a fully path traced version of Star Wars: Jedi Knight II – Jedi Outcast. The lighting is obviously a whole lot more impressive than it was two decades ago, and while there’s still plenty missing from the current build, the results are transformative.

“I’ve always considered ray tracing the pinnacle of graphics and now that it can be done in real time I wanted to learn all about this new tech,” Mr Zyanide says of the project. “Some months prior to the release of RTX cards I found out that Jedi Outcast’s code had been open sourced and since I like the game I decided to combine both things.”
