Play as The Force Unleashed II's new hero... today

New game announcements? Exciting. New game screens or trailers? Exciting. New game official website updates? Eh, not so much.

Today, however, might be an exception. We still don't know all that much about this year's Star Wars sequel, so even the smallest bits of information are interesting. And an immersive new hub site, which not only depicts The Force Unleashed II's new hero - a genetically copied version of the previous game's protagonist - waking up in one of Darth Vader's clone tanks, but also puts you in his first-person perspective?

    Loved the first one apart from the overload of quick time events... Hopefully theyll be cut down in number 2.
