‘Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2′ DLC Allows Gamers To Explore Endor

Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2 Endor DLC

The forest moon of Endor, home of the Ewoks and one of the places explored in the Return of the Jedi movie, will be featured as downloadable content in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. Despite less than steller reviews, LucasArts is striving to provide players of the game more ways to use the Force beyond the main campaign.

In the movie, Endor and its inhabitants play a crucial role in the Galactic Civil War, including the destruction of the second Death Star by the Rebel Alliance. The Endor Bonus Mission DLC planned for later this year will give gamers a chance to take Starkiller into a historic setting in the Star Wars universe. Players will be able to have a “What If” type experience in what LucasArts Singapore executive producer Gio Corsi calls an “infinite storyline”.

“…much like the Hoth Bonus Mission from the first Force Unleashed game that gave us an alternate take on that iconic battle from the Empire Strikes Back.”

Due to the fact that this mission falls inside of the “infinite universe”, players will not be allowed to bring their suped-up Starkiller from the main campaign along for the ride in this new DLC. It makes sense because of the alternate universe gamers will be playing in. A different universe means different leveling for Starkiller, according to Corsi.

“We leveled Starkiller differently for the DLC since this adventure falls into the ‘infinite universe.’ He does have the same abilities as he did in TFU2, which allows Starkiller to start kicking [butt] right from the get go.”

So, wielders of the light saber and those strong in The Force will not be handicapped in anyway. Those who purchase the bonus mission will be able to have battles with Ewoks on Endor, using those punishing abilities that were available to them in the main game. Gamers will be able to strive to obtain more achievements through this Endor Bonus Mission DLC. The bonus mission, which will have Starkiller on the forest moon during climatic scenes from Return of the Jedi, will be comparable in length to the add-ons from the first Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Is this DLC offering of interest to you? Is enough motivation for you to grab your light sabers and battle once more?

    Seriously? “Hey what else do people like from Star Wars? Ewoks? Yeah sure make them into DLC.”

    A big problem I had with Force Unleashed 2 was their reliance on material from the movies. You’ve got a universe of creativity to put in your game, why would you go back to the ewoks?!

    If I’m going to explore an environment from the movies, couldn’t they give me something better than Endor?

    Pass. I sold this game to get Assassins Creed: Brotherhood.

    Italy > Endor

    Local wildlife being disregarded, Endor is a way more interesting and cooler environment to explore than Hoth, which is WAY overused.

    If I could choose, though, I’d want Mandalore as An environ either in game or in DLC; a completely never before used planet that just happens to be the home of thousands of Mandilorians to fight instead of lame Stormtroopers? YES PLEASE

    I can’t wait to force lightning some Ewoks. Maybe if I kill enough it will retroactively fix the ending of Return of the Jedi.

    Umm my main question is it going to be only one mission? Because if so screw it I’m selling the game the main story was so short and the powers can’t there be more I mean I wanna choke some one the hell out like Darth Vader while on the subject of Darth Vader I mean cmon that last battle was more annoying than anything just to either *SPOILER ALERT* take him prisoner or just end up getting killed by a clone of starkiller.… I’m sorry but this DLC better be worth buying if not don’t even make a star wars TFU3 start from scratch and make something completely new because the games goin to be ruined I’m actually pissed off I bought this game it was a MISTAKE thanks alot Mr.Lucas!! When you die I might have the courtesy of visiting your grave and pissing on it.

    Mr. Lucas on the talks of TFU2 i think of this game more of an expansion to TFU not anyway a sequal to your first installment and if all at any if you descide to make another TFU game make it with an ideal twist instead of starkiller thinking he is or is not a clone have him face an andriod that vader built that is excatly like the original copy but more serveant to vaders needs and with the thought of starkiller make him remeber who he is with flashbacks of his youth before the planet wide invasion which he is the son of a jedi outcast Arcane Skywalker since little is known about Schmi’s history you can have him as a great great newphew of Schmi Scwalker and Starkillers real name could be Zane Skywalker so this could prove most interesting to the fan base genra keep the fans wanting more and this could lenghth the game for TFU 3 and have it finalizing it with the catch up to a new hope
