Raven releases Jedi Knight II source code as a tribute to LucasArts closure


Well isn't this a nice gesture. Raven Software has released the source code for Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy as a tribute to the closure of LucasArts yesterday evening.

In an email sent to Kotaku, Raven said their time working with LucasArts was thoroughly enjoyable:
"Raven is sad to hear about the closing of LucasArts today, we respected them and enjoyed working with them over the years," said the studio, in a statement sent to Kotaku Australia. "We wish the best for all the talented people who were let go and hope they find good work in studios in the industry."

"We loved and appreciated the experience of getting to make Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy for LucasArts. As a gift to the persistently loyal fanbase for our Jedi games and in memory of LucasArts, we are releasing the source code for both games for people to enjoy and play with."

I still have my original boxed copy of Jedi Outcast. Might give it an install tonight, if you haven't tried it, then please do. The story was a satisfying romp, I mainly went round attempting to dismember all the Stormtroopers I could find and the multiplayer was silly fun too.

Here's the links for anyone wanting to download the source code.

You do know it's just the source code not a .exe in sight (At least I can't find one)
