Console playing Star Wars fans will be able to unleash the Force in the comfort of their own homes this Thursday when a demo of the latest franchise tie-in game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be available to download via both Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network.
The demo gives players a taste of one of the early levels in the game: the TIE Fighter Construction Facility, under siege by a Jedi General named Rahm Kota. The Secret Apprentice has been sent by Darth Vader to hunt down and destroy the General, but is also told that, in order to remain a secret, he is to leave no witnesses.
Billed as an entirely new chapter in the franchise, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed casts players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice” and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy.
Payers are promised an “expansive story” seet 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 Vader in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi – and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.
The game will be available on XBox 360, Wii, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS and PSP and can be pre-ordered from the seenit.co.uk store.
