LucasArts has announced that a further expansion will be released for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed this autumn, offering players a new downloadable level for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
The Tatooine DLC continues the story of The Force Unleashed in a new “Infinities” storyline that takes the Star Wars Saga in an entirely new and unexpected direction. The 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.
The story picks up as the Emperor sends his new apprentice to the planet Tatooine to dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi. During their hunt for the Jedi, players will also explore the depths of Jabba the Hutt’s palace and encounter notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett.
In addition, Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, a special new version of the game for the Xbox 360 and PS3, will be released this holiday season. 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 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 and will visit locations seen in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.
