Untitled Star Wars game
 
http://blogs.gamedaily.com/blogs/Per...20Session.blog

I didn't see this psoted, but if it is, let me know.

Looks interesting. Maybe a new "Jedi Knight" title? I've enjoyed that series on the PC since "Dark Forces," so a new installment would be great, even on the consoles. I really liked the multiplayer of "Jedi Knight II" as well, so more multiplayer would be great.

Cool, it does look like a new Jedi Knight title to me.

That isn't an actual game. It was a tech demo shown at E3.

http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/11412/...ch-Demo-Movie/

Lucasarts is working on a next-gen Star Wars game, but this video clip is not actual footage from the game. It is just a tech demo to show off the physics. The way the jedi picks up and repeatedly slams the stormtrooper into the ground reminds me of Psi-Ops.

I thought the same exact thing.

Matt 07-23-06 06:32 AM

That may be just a tech demo, but it's been rumored that a new Star Wars game which will be released next Fall as some sort of big "multi-media event"--similar to what they did with Shadows of the Empire ten years ago. Details are very sketchy at this point, but from what I've gathered, it's set in between Episodes III and IV. Brand new characters will be introduced, as well as old favorites like Darth Vader. In fact, the game has been referred to as the "Darth Vader game," and I think the story may revolve around Vader tracking down the remaining Jedi.

New info released:


Next Star Wars game details Unleashed:

The latest issue of Game Informer brought forth information on the latest Star Wars game. Titled Star Wars: Force Unleashed, it is set to help bridge the 19 year gap between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. You get to play as Darth Vader's apprentice, as he wants to overthrow the Emperor and rule the galaxy with you at his side. At the same time, there is a galaxy wide hunt to exterminate the remaining Jedi from existence. Force Unleashed also boasts LucasArts' Eurphoria engine, capable of real-time environmental damage. For instance, when using Force powers on steel, it will dent appropriately. Another example includes a tree either splintering or breaking in two, dependent on the type of impact.

You may be concerned that given the title is taking place between the two trilogies that your actions aren't going to have a huge impact, as the events are set in stone. That's not the case, as LucasArts is saying that there will be multiple endings that can really shake up the Star Wars Universe. At least you have a shot of taking down Palpatine before the first Death Star is fully operational. Does this pique your interest, or does any (finished) Star Wars game without the word "Knights" and "Republic" in the title get ignored?

Can't wait to play it.

taffer 02-12-07 01:54 PM

Darth Vader's apprentice?? :wtf:

I hope the game lets you pick your race (one thing I really wished the KOTOR games would let you do). I want to be an Ewok Sith.

Save Ferris 02-12-07 02:15 PM

geesh cant we play as a good guy??

Kicker_of_Elves 02-12-07 02:31 PM

wheres the fun in that. :)

Hasbro is debuting their upcoming Force Unleashed action figures this week at Toy Fair in New York:

(Click for bigger versions)

I gotta admit--that fucked-up Vader alone has me curious about this game. . .

DthRdrX 02-12-07 04:17 PM

So, going into my Star Wars geek mode, they have already broken the "rule of two" with this story?

Also,

I can't believe Hasbro has these figures coming out so soon yet the KOTOR fans are still waiting on anything to be released. I believe they are doing Darth Malak and one other figure from the series but you would think they would have had them out by now.

pinata242 02-12-07 04:19 PM

I don't know that the Rule of Two is necessarily broken if Vader's training his apprentice for the purpose of usurping the Emperor. What Palpatine doesn't know can, and will in fact, hurt him.

Music 02-12-07 04:35 PM

Similar to what Palpatine did to Count Dooku with Anakin?

taffer 02-12-07 05:17 PM

I wonder if that is Vader's apprentice. He looks like one of the Emperor's personal guards painted black instead of red. I really hope that isn't Vader's apprentice. I was expecting something "less generic."

So if they are turning this "Force Unleashed" thing into a multimedia event like with Shadows of the Empire are there going to be books and comics too? I wonder if Force Unleashed will somehow tie into the TV show they are supposedly planning.

Except Dooku was Palpatine's apprentice. Sidious was happy to sacrifice him for the promise that Anakin had shown.

Supermallet 02-12-07 08:07 PM

Christ, why can't we just play as Vader?

Can't wait to play it.

That's one thing I was wondering : How come it took 19 years for the first Death Star to become operational, but one one or two for the second one?

And what is the "Rule Of Two"?

Mace Windu: But which was destroyed, the Master or the Apprentice?

The next Star Wars game that I want to hear about, better include the Wii, its remote, and light saber duels.

Maxflier 02-13-07 09:50 AM

I wonder who this dude is. He looks badass.

Going into major nerd mode:

Originally there were hundreds and hundreds of Sith like there were hundreds and hundreds of Jedi. The Sith, being pure evil, ended up killing themselves off simply because they were so power-hungry. One Sith, Darth Bane, realized what was happening so he quietly hid away while his fellow Sith killed themselves. The Jedi saw all the in-fighting between the Sith and stepped in to deliver the final blow that brought them to extinction, well near extinction because they did not know about Darth Bane.

Darth Bane creates the Rule of Two because as he just witnessed, too many Sith is a problem. He becomes the sole Sith master and takes one apprentice. The apprentice eventually becomes more powerful than the master and kills the master and takes his own apprentice. This goes on for thousands of years until the Sith are finally ready to reveal themselves and take over the universe (Darth Sidious and Darth Maul).

There is a plothole I have always wondered about: how do Yoda and Mace Windu know about the Rule of Two? The Sith were thought to be extinct before Bane creates the Rule of Two. Remember when Qui-gon tells the Jedi Council that he fought a Sith, and Mace Windu is all like "Impossible. The Sith have been extinct for a millennium." Also, one of Maul's few lines is "At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge." Yoda and Windu did not know about Bane, so how do they know the Rule of Two?

I was stoked about the possibility, but after playing the Wii I'm not so sure it would be anything special.

It doesn't seem like the controller will be able to do full 1:1 movements (i.e) the lightsaber goes in the exact angle, height, speed etc. that you swing the Remote.

With the sensor bar just being an IR emitter and the controller just using that for pointing and accelerometers for motion it doesn't seem possible to get near that level of precision.

So at best you'll just be swinging it to make the character swing the light saber generically ala Zelda or Red Steel.

I can't wait to hear the saber sound coming out of the wiimote.

Okay. That's what I thought you meant, but I guess it just fell flat. :lol:

Lucasarts' page for The Force Unleashed has gone live. . .

Michael Ballack 02-16-07 08:40 AM

Sounds good in concept, hope they don't F it up.

One of the funniest things I've read in a long time.

Giantrobo 02-17-07 03:07 PM

Looks cool. I wouldn't mind seeing a new Star Wars: battlefront game on the 360.

DthRdrX 02-17-07 03:53 PM

Thinking about it,

Palpatine stated in EP3 that "soon he would have a new apprentice". So even Palps kept the rule of two going until Dooku was dead. I suppose Vader did try and break the rule by recruiting Luke in EP5 before Palps was dead so this plot wouldn't be much different for him.

Sidious would see this coming a mile away so I can't wait to see how they construct this plot.

But Vader was looking to take Luke on as an apprentice and kill Sidious...

Vader also trained Lumiya somewhat I believe (not as a true apprentice), but as one of the Emperor's Hand. (Which some believe that the Emperor's Hand indicated that Sidious was getting close to turning away from the Rule of Two.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_Two

"Vader proposed to his son, Luke Skywalker, that they kill the Emperor together; Luke would then have become Vader's apprentice, preserving the Rule of Two. Palpatine also hoped for Luke to kill Vader and become his own apprentice."

No Lightsaber Wii Game Just Yet
Doesn't it mean it won't happen, though. Remain calm.

By Patrick Klepek, 02/19/2007


Controlling a Jedi lightsaber seems just about the most natural concept for the Wiimote, yet LucasArts hasn't said a thing about it yet. What's the deal? Then, they go and reveal Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and don't even bother to announce a Wii version.

In the Game Informer cover story, says TheForce.Net, LucasArts is asked what's up with Wii, and while they leave the door open to a port, they dash hopes that it's the widely speculated lightsaber game. "...even if that version does happen, it probably wouldn't be 'the lightsaber game' that gamers have eagerly been awaiting," said the rep.
