A New Force Will Be Unleashed In 2010
Okay, so we weren't the biggest fans of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, but we know it has a large following 'cuz it sold 5.7 million copies through February 2009.
Therefore, we imagine many of you will be excited to hear that a sequel has been confirmed, and although we don't have any concrete info just yet, we know the game is a true sequel; i.e, it picks up where the first title left off. In other words, you should expect to step back into the boots of Galen "Starkiller" Marek, apprentice to Darth Vader.
If you played the original, you know Marek should be dead (he apparently sacrificed himself at the end of The Force Unleashed) but according to the trailer that showed up at the VGAs, Marek is prominently featured. Oddly enough, though, he may now be a Jedi; he's shown holding the blue-light sabers and fighting a huge, Rancor-eating beast. The trailer included both Vader and Yoda speaking to Marek so maybe there's some pushing and pulling going on...maybe Marek isn't entirely convinced of either side's benefits. If you want to see more, visit the game's teaser website.
We'll let you know when LucasArts nails down a concrete release date, which should be some time next year.
