Star Wars: The Force Unleashed About To Be Unveiled
Lo and behold, the Star Wars game based on last year's jaw-dropping tech demo is finally stepping out of the PR shadows. As I'm sure you will remember if you saw the trailer, LucasArts leaked some physics-intensive footage for a next-gen Star Wars project, which seemed to be more about abusing the Force than anything else. At the time, this was supposed to be a conceptual demo of what a Star Wars title might
look and play like on next generation consoles, but obviously everyone knew (or at least hoped) that there's a real game in the making.
That same game, we believe, is about to be unveiled in the Game Informer magazine's March issue, in a world-exclusive cover story about a certain game called Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The only two platforms they mention are the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but it would be a real shame if there won't be a PC version, and of course some kind of Wii adaptation (we demand a Star Wars Wii game with lightsabers at once!).
Other than the superb cover, featuring an awe inspiring Darth Vader overseeing his Force-happy apprentice and the tagline - "Hunt down the last of the Jedi as Darth Vader's secret apprentice"
- Game Informer also teases us with the following bit about the game's setting:
"In our March issue, we give you the scoop on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed in our world-exclusive cover story. Players will get a chance to work for Darth Vader himself, as the man in black's new apprentice. The game fills in some of the gaps between Episode III and Episode IV, with a storyline full of loyalty, betrayal and the Force."
Need we say that we're mighty excited about this game? The Force is strong with this one!(N.B. Archive text, links removed)
