star wars the force unleashed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed new DLC, new retail editionLucasArts have announced that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will see further expansion this Autumn through a new downloadable level that promises to take the story in a new direction.

In addition, they also announced Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, a special new version of the game that will show gamers the deepest, 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.

The new ‘Tatooine’ DLC 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 notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, due nearer the Holiday season, combines the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed videogame and three new levels to create the definitive ultimate-evil storyline of the events that occurred between the two classic Star Wars movie trilogies.

The additional content includes two levels set on Coruscant and Tatooine previously only available via direct download, and an all-new exclusive level available only in the Ultimate Sith Edition package.

The exclusive level concludes the ‘Infinities’ storyline set up in the Tatooine mission, as the Secret Apprentice is sent to the planet Hoth on a crusade to crush the Rebellion once and for all. While on Hoth, players face Luke Skywalker himself while visiting iconic locations seen in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

    Well this may provide justification for replacing my starwars game, which I havent been able to finish since this is the only game i ever ruined by somehow letting the disk get scratched. Lucas arts said sorry buy a new one at full price. I also might add this would have been a great opportinity to tack on some trophies just because its an excellent game to have them in!

    I have this sat in the cupboard next to me. Still wrapped in cellophane in fact! Kids got me it for fathers day, at a reduced price.

    I think its great they are going to add to a game that will be about a year old by then. It sounds like existing owners will be left in the cold, although I think its more likely that the so called exclusive level will end up as a timed exclusive. It would be madness to lock existing owners out indefinitely.

    There is a reference to a trophy patch over at http://www.ps3trophies.co.uk

      Thanks. Now you have given me the dilemma of when I should start the game. I’m not really a trophy whore, but equally I don’t want to miss the ones you get just for playing it through.

    There’s also a rumour going around that there’ll be trophies for it as well – woo! :) .
