Obsidian devs recreate Star Wars Mos Eisley spaceport in Unreal Engine 4

Headed by Jason Lewis, a total of 17 devs of varying rank are using the project to learn more about the engine, but of course being self-confessed “super Star Wars nerds” makes the undertaking that bit easier. Speaking to 80.lv, Lewis says he first started out with the desire to craft a three dimensional Millennium Falcon, however things quickly spiralled as the project grew in scope.

“Originally it was just going to be the Falcon sitting in Docking Bay 94 so I could run around and look at it in real-time," says Lewis. "Then I thought it would be neat to add the interior to the docking bay, and then maybe some of the surrounding Mos Eisley city, then I thought ‘hey, let’s put the Mos Eisley Cantina in as well!’

Building 'Star Wars' in Unreal Engine 4

Also, if you would like to download it and enjoy it first hand, please feel free to do so. It is a bit system intensive we recommend a minimum of 16GB of system RAM and at least an Nvidia GTX760 or AMD equivalent to run at acceptable frame rates. For high frames rates and / or resolutions of 2560 x 1440 or 2560 x 1600, we recommend at least an Nvidia GTX970or higher, or AMD equivalent.

Unf. I want more quality Star Wars games. KOTOR 3 on Scorpio would be the ultimate

Poor Obsidian. They obviously still want to work on SW and Bioware isn't what they used to be.

EA give them the green light for KOTOR 3 plz. We can pretend SWTOR never happened :)

I wonder if theyre using this as a sort of sly portfolio to try and coax disney into giving them a SW project.

This is apparently an exercise to get the team up to speed with Unreal Engine 4. This was made by a total of 17 people. But you never know? Maybe they put this out to try and get Disney's attention?

Oh yes I'm aware of the story and I'm sure it's still true, I just mean it may serve a sly dual purpose. To get acquainted with UE4 and to get Disney's attention.

Neat, but EA is only going to give up that Star Wars license from their cold, dead hands.

Yeah indeed. It could also be used to get the attention of other publishers too to possibly snag some work on another IP.

Yeah get these guys making Jedi Knight 4 please. Thanks!

Yes please!

You can download it and play it. There's links in the Youtube video. The guy says it isn't optimized at all though and so load time is long. It's 7.4GB.

Pleeeeeaaaaase Kotor 3. 2 was so good. I want to see what Obsidian can really do with the license without being screwed over by executive meddling this time.

It hurts that EA has the exclusive games license and is barely doing anything with it.

Their nuanced take on Star Wars morality was extremely interesting in KOTOR II.

Would love to see them get their hands on this world again.

How to run it in VR.

Download the project from one of the 4 mirrors in the article OR from my MEGA link: https://mega.nz/#!glRC3abC!yYU8mkSsj1kbCBbUM6VhO2EEslciy0EUEfYxyq0rkEE
Once the download finishes extract it to a folder of your choice.
Open up your games library in steam, and then click add non-steam game.
Browse to where you extracted your files and then click on Mos_Eisley_Main_A.exe
Click add selected programs, and then right click on the game in steam and go to properties.
Click SET LAUNCH OPTIONS... and then add this to the text field: -vr
Click ok, close, and then launch the game from steam.

From this thread on reddit.

The pics are way over sharpened but the footage is breathtaking. Obsidian deserves a shot with with the IP. I was smiling while watching the vids. The thought of KOTOR 3 or a new Jedi Knight game looking like this....

Looks great but I don't like the pp: too sharp and this horrible film grain...

I've just walked around Mos Eisley in VR. It was stunning.

Not bad, but i don't like stock UE4 effects which most of developers use in every project (like heavy lens flares and dust screen effects), remember the time when all UE3 games looks similar?

Nice find lol
