So, this is probably the biggest news I could come across since I started following this game from day one. I am one big Star Wars fan and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was an instant buy since hearing of all the possibilities with the new force mechanics and physics. The videos and development docs just threw it over the top. Well, this news is huge, and something I had a small thought wasn’t going to possible. Well, LucasArts has made my dreams come true.You can now play as the Dark Lord of the Sith himself. It’s explained that during the first level of the game, you are given a mission to travel to the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk on a Jedi hunting mission. This is apparently being used to introduce you to the force powers before heading into the real story of the game, with Vader’s secret apprentice.
Speaking about the level, Vanity Fair writes, “Then, pushing another button, he hurls that energy at the furry, fanged Wookiees. A bunch of them go flying off into space, causing the D.M.M.-enabled bridge to start rippling like a water bed. This sends more Euphoria-infused Wookiees toppling over the sides while those that remain struggle to regain their balance.”
