JKG brings the best from a handful of shooters and combines it, to create a unique blend of online shooters and Multiplayer Role Playing Games. JKG is a complete overhaul of JK: JA’s original slow-paced shooting and brings new features such as, but far from limited to: Iron sights, Recoil and plethora of weapons to choose between and master. The extremely flexible weapon system of JKG provides an incredible array of completely overhauled combat, to bring a much more realistic view of the weapons in the expanded Star Wars universe.
At the moment, JKG has incorporated two minigames - the card game of Pazaak, which can be played against an AI or fellow players, and Slice, the Star Wars equivalent of hacking. The powerful lua coding language provides support for easy incorporation of further aspects into the game.
Apart from having high quality maps, models and effects, post-processing effects have been implemented, for instance blur, motion blur and color adjustments. Along with the new, smooth cinematics system, this will sure provide a pleasing experience for the eye.
