In the wake of details hitting on the new Star Wars game by developer LucasArts, The Force Unleashed, the company has set up an official website.
Confirming a release for November 2007, the site features concept art, game details and an FAQ on the DMM (Digital Molecular Matter) and euphoria technology employed. Combined with Havoc physics, we're promised these "groundbreaking" technologies will "create true next-gen gameplay and the Force like it's never been seen or experienced before." PR spin or pure truth? We shall see.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is set between Episode III and Episode IV in the movie series. It sticks you in the shoes of Darth Vader's apprentice, aiding the Dark Lord of the Sith in ridding the universe of Jedi. LucasArts has spoken of a branching storyline, explaining that "Decisions made by players throughout the game will determine the path of the story, including multiple endings that will rock Star Wars continuity as they know it." Oooh, super-duper-marketing. What life-changing events await us?
