E3 2010: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II first look

You are, again, Starkiller (hey, didn't he die?), and Vader has betrayed you. Lucky for you, you're the badassiest Jedi this side of Kamino, or, er, anywherino, so you tear up Vader's puny-ass troopers and escape. But he's still after you - what's his plan, and who are you... just another clone?

Our gameplay demo began with a guided dive - Starkiller smashed through platforms, tossed aside Stormtroopers, and force 'sploded TIE fighters while free-falling. The Digital Molecular Matter and Euphoria engines are in play again, making every Stormtrooper's flailing arms and every shattered building look spectacular.

Once Starkiller was on the ground, we saw his new moves - Force Unleashed II is all about making him super badass. Firstly, he's got two lightsabers now. Since lightsabers are awesome, two lightsabers must be even more awesome, and that's the first step to being more badass. Secondly, he's got new powers, like the Mind Trick, which causes enemies to commit suicide, turn on each other, or just go so crazy they explode. That's also pretty badass. And thirdly, he's got Force Fury, which gives him absurd power for a short time. With it, Starkiller was able to lift and crush two AT-STs, then promptly decapitate ten Stormtroopers with barely a wave of his hand (did we mention that there's dismemberment now?). It is pretty badass.

But we're told that all this new badassery isn't about making the game easier, it's just about giving you the experience of having Starkiller's powers (being a badass) -  more power also means more enemies to destroy.

The game is out October 26th in the US, and October 29th in Europe. We'll have more details as soon as possible!

    Seriously, I'm confused. What's the plot for this? Isn't Starkiller dead?

    This plus Metal Gear Solid: Rising's sword mechanics = win.
  • nadrewod999 - June 17, 2010 12:55 a.m.

    Starkiller has a higher kill count than the Death Star, and that number looks like it will only go sky high from here. SW:TFU II FTW! P.S. I just can't get this out of my head: if you remove the W and : from SW:TFU, you get a very rude insult (not going to say what the insult is or what it means because people have already messaged me in the past about my excessive language at some points).

    Thats pretty badass. Cant wait to dismember some badass stormtroopers with my badass twin badass lightsabers!

    @VirAetas Shhh/lol
  • VirAetas - June 17, 2010 12:46 a.m.

    curse youtube and their mindless adherence to "laws" and "copyright" tomfoolery. When is Future just gonna be them too? I'm sure Google is no match for a company that publishes magazines with characters the likes of Magic Johnson!
  • oufour - June 17, 2010 12:44 a.m.

    i really hope this one isn't a disappointment like the other one.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - June 17, 2010 12:41 a.m.

    Sorry bout the video (just removed it), guess it was taken down from YouTube. Once we have the trailer, I'll put it back!
  • CurryIsGood - June 17, 2010 12:40 a.m.

    thank god for dismemberment
  • VirAetas - June 17, 2010 12:38 a.m.

    FINALLY legit lightsaber dismemberment. I'm gonna make stormtrooper sushi.
  • VirAetas - June 17, 2010 12:36 a.m.
