Yesterday simply could not have slipped by without at least some Star Wars news, after all it was May the Fourth (be with you…get it?). Yesterday LucasArts celebrated the day by announcing that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II will be shipping on October 26th for all three consoles and the PSP.
Details of the game are still under wraps, and little is known of the storyline, save what there is in the trailer, which features the main character from the first game. Without spoiling the ending of the original game, the trailer raises more questions about the plot than answers, but E3 should see a bit of that sorted out.
The original game followed Galen “Starkiller” Marek, Darth Vadar’s secret apprentice as he served the Sith and carried out their bidding, while wrestling with the morality of his actions, and generally mowing down anyone foolish enough to look at him funny. A DLC that reflected a dark ending allowed players to rewrite the original movies and beat the snot out of Luke Skywalker on the ice planet of Hoth.
The game’s official website shows the hero brandishing dual blue light sabers, the color of a jedi, and the page feature’s Yoda’s hut in the background. Other than that, very little has been released.
The original game was a major hit in 2008, selling over 7 million copies.
