Players create a Jedi apprentice character and join the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 to learn the ways of the Force under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. While the young apprentice embarks on various missions to hone their skills and abilities, a mysterious group is discovered creating havoc throughout the galaxy. Until order is restored, the fate of the Jedi Academy – and the future of the Star Wars galaxy itself – hangs precariously in the balance.

Confront the Sith as you strive to restore balance and find yourself, whether it be for good or evil. The game also features a multiplayer mode where you can duel it out with NPC Jedi or your friends on several different maps.
