We have good news for Star Wars fans - a demo and trailer of the fan game Star Wars: Redemption, developed since December 2016 by French artist Etienne Beschet (alias Vexod14), have appeared on the web. As we learn on ArtStation, where the game has its official page, it will be a production set during the Clone Wars and the player is to follow the story of a female Jedi fighting side by side with the clones.
The trailer is full of action, moving between many locations, which probably we can expect to see in the final game. The main role in the video is played by the aforementioned Jedi, who uses two lightsabers in battle. The heroine, with the help of clones, efficiently uses her weapon to eliminate enemy droids.
You can access the demo version here and here, but note that it does not include any combat sequences. Of course they will be a part of the full game, but as Beschet says, the enemies that we're going to be fighting need some polishing.. The whole process of creating the project can also be followed on the artist's blog, which keeps the fans updated on theprogress of work.
As for the system requirements of Star Wars: Redemption, which is powered by Unreal Engine 4, the creator recommends to run the game on a GeForce GTX 1070 or better. For smooth operation, however, we need at least: GeForce RTX 2080, 9th-gen Intel i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM.
"The game was tested on a PC with a GTX 1070, 32GB of RAM (8 is enough) and a 6th-gen Intel i7 processor. It worked fine on such a setup; playing on weaker hardware may burn your computer, so you run the demo at your own risk (there should be no problems with it, just be careful with weak PCs)".
Although the game promises to be amazing, productions like this are usually problematic in terms of copyright and Star Wars is owned by Disney. So it the existence of this fan game (and many more simi;ar projects) under a big question mark. Nevertheless, the creator should be congratulated on his work so far.
