Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Gets First Details

by Dan Crabtree, posted on 28 April 2010 / 6,533 Views

After seeing the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, you may be thinking to yourself, as an avid consumer of all things Star Wars, "But wait, (SPOILER) didn't the protagonist of The Force Unleashed, Starkiller, die at the end of the game?" And you'd be right.

But in the Star Wars universe, dead people can be cloned back to life, and it sounds like with a vengeance. Through the broken English of the translation from the French site, it can be deciphered that SW:TFU2 will feature fewer, more powerful enemies with "better defined attacks".

But probably the biggest bomb dropped in this bit of information is the inclusion of a multiplayer mode. Sounds like players will finally get the chance to wield nearly unlimited force powers in battles against their friends, which seems incredibly promising.

Thanks Console+.

@ Winters Luke Skywalkers original name in the first script wrote by Lucas was Starkiller but he felt it was too evil sounding so he changed it so it is original, its kind of poking fun at the first starwars like family guy did with blue harvest since that was a new hopes codename when it was being made.

If this has move support, I am buying a move!

Ralph! erm sorry. Clones? can we please be a little more original. Outside of a brief mention of Clones when Leia's message to Ben Kenobi about his efforts in the Clone Wars and then the lead to SW Clone Wars stuff. This singlular cloning of Force Users(which seems unlikely to Clone Force Strength) was entirely the fiction of bad comics and books of the EU. Not from Lucas Arts itself. Now I know why all the Lucas Arts Story stuff sucks these days. It's all fanficiton, wonder when they get around to have official lemon work :\ anyways maybe the game will be fun. Story surely doesn't equal fun at least.

@Recon1O1 Dude, the whole George Lucas whoring out Star Wars boat sailed a loooong time ago. Just enjoy the game, you don't need to take any notice of the story.

STARWARS: FORCE UNLEASHED IS ONE OF THE GREATEST GAMES OF ALL TIME AND ONE OF THE GREATEST GAMES I HAVE EVER PLAYED. SO THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE A HOMERUN!


Winters (on 29 April 2010)

Starkiller? Please, there have to be more creative people working on this project...


ithis (on 29 April 2010)

I wasn't satisfied with the way he died, (to easily). In the trailer, Yoda says something about death being part of life, and if a cloned Force wielder (an extremely talented one) regains he's former self, he suddenly has an unique insight into death, which should make him even stronger or something.


kupomogli (on 29 April 2010)

@Recon101 $10 for 45 minutes is better than the amount Capcom has you pay for costumes for SF4 or costumes and the multiplayer mode in RE5. Even worse is that Capcoms DLC was nothing more than unlock code rather than add on to the game. Everything was already on the disc. Now that's greedy.


Slimebeast (on 29 April 2010)

(SPOILER) The protagonist died in the first game? lol I don't remember that. It was a decent game but not very memorable


dirkd2323 (on 29 April 2010)

Its great my brother in law is the Lead developer on this game, He also did the first force Unleashed, I get so much Inside info on these games, I have even been allowed to go to Lucas Arts and play parts of these games in these theater developers room, on a Hugh screen, then give my opinion back on things about the game I like or Dislike, One thing I can say is force Unleashed 2 will be a must buy, !!!!!!!!


Recon1O1 (on 28 April 2010)

Where can they go with the story? I'm one of the few idiots who bought that last dlc. $10 for 45 mins. George has become more greedy than we could possibly imagine.


oniyide (on 28 April 2010)

@ andremop i second that but ill probably just end up playing the PS3 version anyway


coolbeans (on 28 April 2010)

@tripleb2k Cloning has been used in the Star Wars lore in both movies + the deeper lore, they didn't really "find some way" to bring Starkiller back. While I don't like the concept since, like triple said, the first one ended so well I'm very interested to see how the new love story will work out now. Just polish the gameplay and have another great story and I'll be buying.


thx1139 (on 28 April 2010)

Natal support is the support that is really needed. The Natal seeing the different ways you use your hands for force push or chokes would set Natal apart.


andremop (on 28 April 2010)

Well, motion plus support or no buy.


WIzarDE (on 28 April 2010)

Implement move ? I kind think it would be cool :P


tripleb2k (on 28 April 2010)

a clone? oh dear. just like SO many other games. the original ended well and the story was closed... but since it sold well, they'll find someway to bring people back to the game with a story that doesn't need to be told or expanded on (bioshock, god of war). not saying the sequels were awful, but they were stretching the story to make MORE money


badgenome (on 28 April 2010)

Crap. I'd totally written off this game, but the idea of multiplayer is kind of intriguing.


Smeags (on 28 April 2010)

By this time Boba Fett should be around and kicking. Make sure he's in the game LucasArts! :-P First game was fun but short, and with little to make up for that fact (Wii version had the multiplayer battle arena, but still...). Hopefully the first game gave them a foothold in the series to create a great sequel.


FreeTalkLive (on 28 April 2010)

Wii Motion Plus and Move support make a lot of sense. If so, I'm pretty sure millions of people will at least give the games a try.


bmmb1 (on 28 April 2010)

How about some motion plus support for the Wii version?


heruamon (on 28 April 2010)

Geesh...really...c'mon.
