The Force Unleashed 2 Receives Early Praise

April 26, 2010Written by David Griffin

When Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was announced in 2007 and later came out in 2008, it had the audience clamoring for more.  It was well received by gamers and Star Wars fans alike, and continues to hold their attention, even today thanks to a recent trophy patch. So when the sequel was first teased back at last year’s Spike TV VGAs, fans have been patiently waiting to unleash more of the force. Even though, there is still much more waiting to be had, you’ll find comfort in knowing that the game’s development is going smoothly

There is a lot to look forward to in the next chapter, including bigger boss fights and the continuation of the story. Even though there has only been one teaser trailer since the announcement of the sequel, the CEO of LucasArts, Darrell Rodriguez,  stated the game is coming along “phenomenally”. Darrell continued:

“The progress that our internal team has made from The Force Unleashed to its DLC, then to the Sith Edition which packaged it into one disc, and now TFU2 – well, it’s phenomenal. It looks great and plays well.

“We sold over 7m copies of the first game. It has a big fanbase and we’re confident they will come back. And we’re still in a great relationship with [LEGO developer] TT Games.”

It sounds like the force is definitely strong with this one. Stay tuned to PSLS for more info on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 a it is announced.
