New Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 DLC will let you murder the hell out of Ewoks. This pleases us

What’s the one thing that could make the Force Unleashed II  immeasurably more awesome? If you said ‘dropping the stroke-baiting Darth Vader boss battle’, then you, my friend, are wrong. The correct answer, is adding Ewoks. Specifically, letting you kill the furry bastards in a blaze of Force Lightning. Which is just what the game’s first DLC will let you do. Rejoice everyone who laughed at the Ewok death scene in Return of the Jedi. Your homicidal fantasises are about to come true.


Above: <sniff> What a joyous sight

Speaking to IGN, Gio Corsi (an executive producer at LucasArts Singapore) confirmed the pack would be set on the Ewok’s moon home during Episode VI. He said: "It takes place on the forest moon of Endor during the time of Return of the Jedi. However, we like to call this an "infinite storyline", much like the Hoth Bonus Mission from the first Force Unleashed game that gave us an alternate take on that iconic battle from the Empire Strikes Back."

Frankly, we could be happier about the whole Ewok barbecuing thang. We just can’t forgive Uncle George from changing his original plan to include Wookies in Jedi, to crowbar in those annoying little ankle-biters. The DLC will also contain new achievements/trophies, including one named Sither Kicker. Anyhoo, it'll be out before the end of the year.

Just to realign some jarnalistic balance, I just thought I should admit to actually enjoying the Ewoks' ‘surprisingly not totally shit’ late 80s cartoon series.


Above: That's a whole heaping of happy (definitely not rose-tinted) childhood memories right there

    this kind of fan pleasing level should be in the game. and I cant belive the thought never came to their minds. sure the DLC money greed speaks very loud when choosing what to put in the game and what to leave it to work later.

    odd that just the thought of slaughtering vast numbers of Ewoks makes me chuckle and grin I must be a psychopath.

    @ventanger The guy from Cocoon and the Diabetes ads did Ewok movies??? Why didn't I know about this? Crazy.

    NOOOOOOOO I LOVE EWOKS!!!!
  • ventanger - November 17, 2010 4:53 p.m.

    Oh hell yes. Anyone who's seen the Ewok movies with Wilfred Brimley (with an unavoidably shocked and confused expression cemented on your face during, and several hours after viewing) will undoubtedly love this news.
