Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
I don’t know how many people actually know about this game but LucasArts are creating a Star Wars game that mainly focuses on the Force powers, taking them to heights never seen before. In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed you will play as Darth Vader’s secret apprentice and the game promises unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy.
The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi – and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.
As its name implies, The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force by taking full advantage of newly developed technologies that will be seen and experienced for the first time: Digital Molecular Matter (DMM), by Pixelux Entertainment, and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd. Paired with the powerful Havok Physicsâ„¢ system, these new technologies create gameplay only possible on the new generation of consoles. DMM incorporates the physical properties of anything in the environment so that everything reacts exactly like it should – wood breaks like wood, glass shatters like glass, plants on the planet Felucia bend like plants on the planet Felucia would, and more. Meanwhile, as a revolutionary behavioral-simulation engine, euphoria enables interactive characters to move, act and even think like actual human beings, adapting their behavior on the fly and resulting in a different payoff every single time.
I am looking forward to this game, I just want to push people through a couple walls, choke some folks then hit with lightning, all the fun stuff you wish Jedi’s and Sith’s would do more often. This game should be released November 2007. Check out Star Wars: Force Unleashed website for all the details.
