Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Today, Lucas Arts launched the official website for their upcoming game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. In TFL, you play Darth Vader’s secret apprentice as you try to hunt down and kill Jedi, like the cockroaches they are. That’s right, TFL takes place between Episode III and Star Wars and actually wants you to whack those goody goody Jedi.

I can’t wait.

But! It gets even better. Take a gander at this:

Decisions made by players throughout the game will determine the path of the story, including multiple endings that will rock Star Wars continuity as they know it.

That sound you hear is the sound of multiple SW fanboy’s heads exploding. Apparently, there are several message boards where SW ‘fans’ are hopping mad about the story line of the game. I believe Captain Kirk said it best when he said: “Get a life!”. (Yes, yes, I know it was Shatner on SNL. Work with me. Send all nasty emails to John.)

Still, check out the images. Awesome. And if you’ve seen the tech demo, then you know what kind of juicy Force powers await you. All in all, this one looks great. We’ll see how it actually turns out.

  1. Games for Windows magazing had an interesting write-up that described how Lucas Arts was trying to get back some credibility by investing in solid underlying technology first, then getting a good story, and finally building compelling gameplay (fun!) on top of it. Too often they would just throw something together based on poor technology that hampered the games ability to succeed.
