163w ago - LucasArts Producer Brett Rector has confirmed that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II hits PS3 Tuesday and detailed some of the video game's enhancements today.
To quote: One of the most exciting days for a video-game developer is release day, and for those of us who worked on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, October 26th, 2010 is our day.
It's one we've been building up to since the release of the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed back in 2008. Starkiller has returned as the game's protagonist, and he's more bad-ass than ever.
But is he really Starkiller? If you played the first game then you know he sacrificed himself to save key members of the Rebellion he helped start. So how is it possible that Starkiller is alive?
Not one to stay idle, Darth Vader has been doing some tinkering in a secret laboratory on Kamino, the cloning planet from Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones. I think you can see where I'm going with this.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is all about a personal journey, one where you attempt to unravel the mystery behind whether Starkiller's a clone or not. The first game was all about redemption; the second is about identity and searching for the truth....
222w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition along with support for PS3 Trophies.
To quote: I know the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has been out for about a year now, but with the recent addition of PSN Trophies to the title and a new version of the game hitting soon (Ultimate Sith Edition), I figured there'd be plenty of you giving the game a first (or second) look.
Also, LucasArts' Presidio campus is pretty much the coolest workplace location on the planet, so we had no problem coming back :-)
So after Chris was done taking a look at Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron for PSP, Assistant Production Manager Cameron Suey popped the updated Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition into the PS3.
This version packs a couple of interesting "What if?" levels onto the original game, as well as some new trophies to boot (eagle eyes will catch our demo dude unlocking one late in the video).
296w ago - Lucasarts have announced that the all powerful Darth Vader will be playable in The Force Unleashed. However, he will just be available in the games first level, and from then on you will instead take the role of Vader's apprentice - which is the guy you have most likely seen in all recent screenshots and videos of the much vaunted title.
As Vader you will apparently get to play with all the force powers available, causing as much destruction as you want, thus getting a good taste of what's to come further on in the game. If you ever played one of the Metroid titles you should be familiar with mechanic, although in this case you won't be losing your powers, but instead switching to a different character to build from thr ground up.
Sounds exciting, but it was recently announced that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be released this September, so you've got a bit of wait before you can grab your red lightsaber, and truly understand the power of the Dark Side.
