Force Unleashed sells 7 million, Hoth DLC arrives
LucasArts' Secret Apprentice-led Star Wars action adventure hits new sales milestone; Infinities storyline concludes on PSN now, Xbox Live February 23 for $10.
LucasArts kicked off the Infinities storyline for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed in August 2009 with the release of Tatooine Mission Pack, a downloadable add-on that continued the storyline of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice. However, to conclude that storyline, players had to purchase Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition, which included the accompanying Hoth Mission Pack, along with the original game and other DLC.
For those gamers who didn't take the plunge to pick up the Ultimate Sith Edition, LucasArts is now offering the Hoth Mission Pack as a separate download through Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. The PS3 edition of the add-on is now available for $9.99, and the XBL version will follow on February 23 for MSP800.
[WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!]
The Infinities storyline begins after one of the numerous endings to the original, when the player kills Vader and becomes Emperor Palpatine's assistant and a Sith Lord. The galactic dictator then dispatches players to Tatooine, where they try to track down and kill the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The Hoth Mission pack continues this journey and sees the Secret Apprentice traveling to the titualar icy planet to do battle with Luke Skywalker and wipe the last traces of the Rebellion from the galaxy. Players will also find themselves visiting locations made famous in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.
The original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed launched in September 2008 to lukewarm reviews. However, the game's critical reception did not impact its commercial success, and LucasArts said today that the game has now sold more than 7 million units worldwide. In December, the publisher announced The Force Unleashed II for release on unspecified platforms in 2010.
