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.
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.

I really want it too, but the USB? That wasn't as appealing estetically as I had hoped for..

Oh come on! Why did The Force Unleashed have to come out very close to New Vegas? Especially considering that they both have collector editions with in-game bonuses. Ugh, now I have to decide which one I want to pre-order...

Those are really frighteningly hideous USB sticks. What were their designers thinking?! Someday, some night, they are going to think back on what they have done and kick themselves in the backside for doing such embarrassing things.

Shockingly, I'm in the same boat as Nater307. Hey, it's only an extra 20 bucks for another cool steel case to go next to my Ultimate Sith Edition of part 1. Sign me up.

Hmm, can't really say thats a definite buy for me. The only use I would have for that USB is if I can rip my music on it for when I tire of hearing in game music really.

WORST C.E ever. They have made Starkiller look like an idiot USB. Why not a figure or even a poster? Anything is better than that ugly thing.

So we've seen at least three international magazine cover stories on the game, a few interviews with the developers, some screenshots, and a teaser trailer. Now we get news of a premium edition with lots of swag. Okay LucasArts....its time to reveal the multi-player component that we've heard whispers about for the past eight months! Hopefully we get a huge E3 reveal, with multi-player gameplay akin to a Jedi Knight pseudo-sequel. Make it happen, LucasArts!

The only thing that matters.... well, is mildly interesting here, are the tiny bits of extra ingame content that get delivered with it. The rest are toys, and I can get them for a lot cheaper from Geoffrey the Giraffe. $20.00 for junk... I'll never understand it.

Actually, @Darth_Nater3057, we do know what the non Collector's Edition's cover will look like. Just go to Amazon.Com and see.

The USB drive is a Mimobot from Mimoco or whatever. Unless it is slapped together and mass produced in a rush for this game, i'm sure the quality is good since this company already has a full line of Star Wars USBs like this one.

Didn't know it sold so many copies. A sequel was a given with those kind of sales. I don't think I'd waste my time with collector's edition.

First was a great game even with its flaws... if Lucas Arts is actually gonna make this a franchise it could be huge... just like what KOTOR could have been
