Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Set For October 26
While Star Wars: The Force Unleashed didn't exactly receive elite review scores from critics, it obviously sold enough to warrant a sequel.
If 7 million total units sold isn't enough, nothing is. And late last year, we knew the sequel would arrive towards the end of 2010, although LucasArts wouldn't nail down a specific launch window. But now, according to the upcoming game's Facebook page, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is set to release on October 26. It doesn't mention the platforms but we've long since had the retailer information; the game is coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, DS and Wii. If you want to catch a glimpse of the teaser trailer, head over to GameSpot and watch the video; just bear in mind there are some minor spoilers. We do know the sequel should feature Galen "Starkiller" Marek, Darth Vader's understudy that became a big hit with fans of the original title. You may have thought he'd be dead and buried but Marek appears to be very much alive, so we're hoping you liked the protagonist from the first Force Unleashed. But anyway, just about anything with "Star Wars" in the title still sells. The craze may never die...
What's the deal with publishers slapping up significant announcements on Facebook and Twitter? Do we really care about these so-called social sites this much? ...I guess we do.
