For the release of Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, not only the graphics have been improved.

The game was released in 2003 for PC and Xbox; through backwards compatibility the game can also be played on today’s Xbox One.
In Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, players with up to 16 players can compete in six different multiplayer modes. In the single-player section, you are a student at Luke Skywalker’s Jedi School and with instructions from Kyle Katarn, you must complete a variety of missions and learn about a new mysterious sith cult.
