The Empire Strikes Home with Exclusive PlayStation Home Content

August 5, 2010Written by Thomas Williams

It is perhaps the greatest sequel to any film of all time and it’s about to turn 30 years young. Can you guess what it is I’m speaking of? Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back of course! What better way to celebrate this milestone in movie history than with a barrage of PlayStation Home content? Star Wars fans who also happen to be PS Home fans should definitely check this out, as not only do we get new and exciting Star Wars costumes, but we will also be seeing a brand-new public space featuring one of the more iconic locations in the trilogy’s history!

The Mos Eisley Cantina will be the latest to Home soon. For those of you who need a reminder, this is where Luke and Obi-Wan meet Han for the first time on Tatooine in Star Wars: A New Hope. Yeah, it doesn’t have much to do with ESB, but hey, a new public space is always welcomed in PS Home. The Mos Eisley Catina is faithfully recreated starring Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes house band and Wuher, the bartender who also happens to hate droids. As you can see in the screens, the team at LucasArts did one heck of a job transferring the location to the digital world.

Finally, some Empire Strikes Back specific content is coming in the way of the following costumes: Imperial Snowtrooper Suit, AT-AT Pilot Suit, Rebel Snowspeeder Pilot, Han Solo Hoth Outfit, Leia Organa Hoth Outfit, Chewbacca Wookiee Costume, and even a C-3PO Protocol Droid Costume.

So ‘Use the Force’ this Thursday, August 4th on PlayStation Home to check out some of this new and exciting content. The Star Wars nerd inside all of us demands it! Now if we could only get a Boba Fett costume, my life would be complete…

Check out some screenshots of the anniversary content to hit PlayStation Home soon below:
