On a very apt day for Star Wars news, LucasArts today announced that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
now has a confirmed release date, scheduled to drop on October 26th.
The follow-up to 2008's Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
was originally announced via a teaser trailer at December's Spike TV VGA Awards.
You can watch that trailer again if you want via the external link below, if you want to see some hints about what's happened to Starkiller since the end of the first game, as he describes his holiday to Tijuana, and how he broke his coccyx playing soccer with the locals. That last bit may be a lie. The trailer does have voice overs from Yoda and Darth Vader though and hints at the game's plot, seeing Starkiller fight between good and evil.
LucasArts are keeping most of the game's details under wraps at the moment, but have said that the full scoop will be in the next issue of GamePro magazine, and no doubt more info at E3 next month!
