Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 will have a demo released prior to launch very similar to what’s currently available to gamers at Gamescom, a Lucasarts representative said. The demo will supposedly be available prior to the games release, rather than released day-and-date with the game, as is the current demo trend.
According to attendees, the demo begins with returning/cloned/duplicated protagonist Starkiller attempting to escape his prison on Kamino, steal a Tie Fighter and get off-planet. Controls are similar to the first game (which we didn’t really have any complaints about) and the imagery and feel is consistent with the first. Bringing back the one who sacrificed his life to start the Rebellion cheapens the first game significantly… but if it means more Starkiller, bring it on.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 will be released October 26.
