Force Unleashed II gets premium edition

Premium pack to include bonus challenge levels, themed USB drive with digital art book, game script, and more.

The Star Wars chronicles continue in October when Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II arrives, but for spendthrift fans of the series, precursory excitement begins today. A collector's edition for the space-bound sequel was announced recently, with an array of themed collectibles packed inside.

The (Star)killer edition.

LucasArts will release the premium offering October 26 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $79.99. The premium pack will include a steelbook casing with exclusive in-game items inside its high-end wrapping. In-game premiums include three challenge mode levels, a Deak Starkiller skin designed by original Star Wars illustrator Ralph McQuarrie, and a yellow lightsaber crystal.

Additionally, the top-tier pack will include a 2GB Mimbot USB drive with a Force Unleashed II digital artbook inside, as well as themed wallpapers and a game script penned by series producer Haden Blackman.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is a sequel to the 2008 original, taking place six months after the events of its predecessor. It was unveiled at the 2009 Video Game Awards, where a teaser trailer was shown depicting a dual-wielding Starkiller fighting a gargantuan behemoth. The original was the fastest-selling LucasArts Star Wars game in history and went on to sell more than 7 million units in its lifetime.
