Force Unleashed unleashing more DLC, Sith Edition for PC, PS3, 360

[UPDATE] LucasArts announces Luke Skywalker level coming to PSN, XBL this fall; retail edition will box up all previous downloadable content, exclusive add-on; game coming to Windows and Mac for first time.

Boba Fett rolls out the welcome mat on Tatooine.

Though not wholeheartedly embraced by critics, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has proved a massive hit for LucasArts, now selling more than 6 million copies worldwide since its September 2008 release. Today at Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego, the company announced it is readying a downloadable expansion for the game, as well as a new retail configuration.

Due out this fall on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, the new Tatooine Downloadable Content will take place in the titular planet--but will offer a storyline not seen in any prior films or games. A sort of alternate history inside the Star Wars universe, the "Infinities" storyline will see players resume the mantle of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.

Luke Skywalker is the welcoming committee on Hoth.

[WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!]

The DLC will begin after one of the game's numerous endings when the player kills Vader and becomes Emperor Palpatine's assistant and a Sith Lord. The malevolent galactic dictator then dispatches players to Tatooine, where they will try to track down and kill the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi. Along the way, players will encounter Jabba the Hutt's palace and bump into the bounty hunter Boba Fett--who, judging by the screenshots, isn't very welcoming.

As it turns out, Tatooine Downloadable Content will be only the first part of the Infinities storyline. The second will see the players travel to Hoth and do battle with Luke Skywalker and wipe the last traces of the Rebellion from the galaxy. That add-on will be available only as part of a new boxed retail product. Available only for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition will include the original game, the Coruscant and Tatooine missions, and the Hoth level. It will be available this fall at an as-yet-unannounced price. Given its best-seller status, the Force Unleashed is currently available for $29.99 at retailers such as Best Buy solo.

[UPDATE] At its Comic-Con press event, LucasArts also announced Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition for the PC and Mac, bringing the game to both platforms for the first time. It is expected alongside its console brethren this holiday season.

To all members complaining about dlc, realize that it could of been a whole lot worse. Other games had dlc's priced at $20(or 1600M$ points) each, and came out with up to 4 dlc maps or levels. two examples gears of war 2 and fallout 3. 4 mappacks for gears2 paying a total of $80, $20 more than the price of the game. 4 dlc levels for fallout 3. if you guys are gonna complain everytime someone comes out with dlc, then you should put the controllers down and just wail before buying the first time release. wait for the game of the year edition or something and get all your mappacks included.

So the "update" is a little confusing b/c as of 12/14/09, at least as far as I know, the Hoth level is NOT on XBL......anyone know any differently on this? Thx

@beaner_bimmer Saw the Sith ed. of the game at my local Walmart for $40 CAD for the xbox. I am so getting it when I get paid... also in regards to the end of your comment, what do you think they based the Rancor in EP 6 off of? LOL!

i stopped understanding why ppl showered lucas with money in the 80's. and episodes I thru III were atrocious. it should be obvious to everyone because he hasn't released a direct to game version of them. a first for lucas. im proud to say i just picked up the "old" version for $11 and wont be getting any dlc. and after popping it in i cant understand what justifies it getting a special new release. lucas mustve come out from behind his rock for his periodic feasting upon the carcass that is his fanbase.

Lucasarts have been corrupted by the darkside for not making the Hoth mission a DLC. :(

I LOVE SW as a whole the movies and all bc I believe it tells a story worth telling and is also a warning against what anger, fear, etc. can do in someone's life but what I HATE is LucasArts' quest for mo' money, mo' money and the fact that I dropped $59.99 for the title then both DLC's at about $20 and there's Hoth yet to go and NOW the Ultimate Sith edition has a shelf price of $36.99 is absolute BS!!!!!!!!! If LucasArts "cares" about their fanbase they will release the Hoth content on XBL FREE!!!!!!! But I know they won't.........

I am from Greece and they still haven't made available the Jedi level but they just added Tatooine. I am not going to buy them unless they put them all in one pack.I have played this game on ps2 and i have to say its not the same game. Different missions (some) different powers.. Its a pity because i m a fun. They only want to take our money.

rob_42

an awsome but short game. i got 1000GS and returned it in a week after it came out. (made $5 profit from the trade in...) if this sith addition is priced appropriately il give it strong consideration

I think this game is going to overprice alot of things including this I mean £7.99 for the tatooine mission? then another £7.99 for Coruscant and (I assume) another £7.99 for a mission on Hoth? I mean thats almost as much as a new game will cost they will need a hell of a lot of stuff to be put into the hoth mission because from what Ive heard Coruscant and tatooine take about 3 hours to complete at max! Lucasarts please stop milking this game for every penny you are just making me hate probably one of the coolest of the Star wars games. PS (Does it say that the Hoth mission will only be available by actually buying the Sith edition? If so that means I would need to buy the game again for the DLC!) Lucasarts stop annoying us please I love SW there are few people who love it more than me I spend 20 minutes on SWTOR website each day ffs! Please cut us some slack Lucasarts

I dunno. I was somewhat underwhelmed. I enjoyed the game, but felt the sense of enormous areas was lacking. the ones that were just didn't feel big. They felt...compartmentalized. it didn't feel like a true SW game. I hate to say it, but the Jedi Knight games, as old as they are, had it right for the technology of the time. I will give the Jedi Temple level credit though. The landing platform had the right feeling of scale. Story was great though.

the 800msp and a 1gb for the really short 15 minutes of gameplay for the tatooine mission was not worth the money

Fededyret

Is it just me who feel a little cheated? this game was so short (awesome, but short) and now they are selling extra missions for 5 time the prices it's worth. they should simply make all the new missions available for us who have bought the game, so that it would be worth the money we have spend

this is great i always wondered what was gonna happend after starkiller killed vader. But i had a felling that they were gonna do something like this since the emperor put all that machine stuff on starkiller like how he did with vader. And the fact that starkiller didnt die in 1 of the endings made me believe that they were gonna make another SWTFU

@ gaubanrei :) i'm just glad Lucasarts is releasing it as DLC, because, to be fair, they were annoying so many people they would be missing out on cash! Now all i need is for them to say something, anything, about Star Wars Battlefront III !

gaubanrei
gaubanrei

I missed that latest update, so yeah it seems like you won't have to re-buy SWTFU to get all the update's. But i will as i have not got any of the DLC so it would be cheaper to get it all together than get all the DLC :)

JMizzle

@ gaubanrei My understanding was that Hoth would be coming to DLC due to the update at the top of the article "[UPDATE] LucasArts announces Luke Skywalker level coming to PSN, XBL this fall" And since Tatooine is the Obi Wan/Boba Fett/Jabba level I assumed this meant the Hoth level is only a timed exclusive. Some clarification from Lucasarts would be nice, but not likely.

Well for only $40 this is awesome news now everyone can stop complaining about the price being to much. Does anyone know if you will have to re-beat the game or can you just use your old save data?

@ AJ-2k7 Nope it says "Tatooine Downloadable Content will be only the first part of the Infinities storyline. The second will see the players travel to Hoth and do battle with Luke Skywalker and wipe the last traces of the Rebellion from the galaxy. That add-on will be available only as part of a new boxed retail product." So yeah if you want the hoth level you'll need to get the sith edition :(

AJ-2K7

@ comeon111 your're wrong, you just need the DLC, the Sith edition is just for people who don't have the game already

comeon111

So the only way I can get the Hoth is to pay full price for the game..... AGAIN! no way you lucas arts.

I know I am going to get a ton of Nerd attacks by saying this...But IMO, the last Star Wars game, The Force Unleashed was better then any movie or game released...The gameplay, and story was awesome!

linardi

Jim60360

bananasaber

it looks cool and to be honest there is no side like the dark side ;) and you get to be in the actual films instead of Darth Vader! Still there's no Star Wars games that can match KotOR. If you have yet to try it you must! Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic= the best RPG game ever!

the guy who said that pandemic shouldnt be bought by EA cuz of battlefront 3. well you are wrong. battlefront 3 was being made by Free Radical but the company was bought by Crytek allong with all licenses. so maybe the release of the game will take longer as expected but if its made with CryEngine it would be the best game ever. dont be sad lol and now back on topic. lets hope that lucasarts actually release this game for pc this time..

Jackc8

So those of us who were dumb enough to buy the original game won't be able to get the Hoth level without buying the stinkin' thing again!?! Lucas = Greed.

Wow, just when I was begining to wonder where all the Star Wars cash-ins were this fall. Then Lucas Arts comes along and tacks three new levels on to a medocre game. Brilliant!

I am looking forward to the PC version. @Spitz6860- I agree with you. I got halfway through the PS3 version than had to stop. The game was too buggy and unplayable.

Because of the controls the best version of this game by far is on the Wii. Why is it getting ignored with this?

I've realized this year, that I've had a bad, AWFUL habit of not giving games the rightful attention I went back to this game yesterday (played up too the Junkyard level when I purchased it last year and then left it alone ever since), and can say that I am without a doubt, HOOKED
