LucasArts today announced that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will see further expansion this spring through a new downloadable level for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
This new downloadable mission continues the story of The Force Unleashed in a new “Infinities” storyline that takes the Star Wars Saga in an entirely new direction.
The mission begins at the end of the story of The Force Unleashed and re-imagines the Star Wars Saga as if the Secret Apprentice had killed Darth Vader and taken his place at the Emperor’s side, becoming the most powerful Sith Lord in the universe. The story picks up as the Emperor sends his new apprentice to the planet Tatooine to dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi - who has been hiding on the planet ever since the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. During their hunt for the reclusive Jedi, players will also explore the depths of Jabba the Hutt’s palace and encounter bounty hunter Boba Fett.
In addition, the company also announced Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, a special new version of the game for next-gen consoles that will show gamers the darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself. The Ultimate Sith Edition will include all of the original missions found in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well as content previously only available via download and an all-new exclusive bonus level.
