In what can perhaps be claimed as the biggest surprise of the night during Spike TV’s Video Game Awards, a brand new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II was shown to the masses! As it was with Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, it appears that most people had no idea that this game was even in the works, let alone that there was an awesome trailer ready to go (Note: the image at right was found at the Lucas Arts website, so it may have been announced before these awards were presented). With the huge new Knights of the Old Republic MMO being developed by BioWare, Star Wars and its universe is making a big push at completely taking over the world of gaming!
Once again, the trailer is of the cinematic variety, and it shows we the Apprentice from the first game walking down a corridor as the voices of Jedi Master Yoda and the dark Sith Lord Vader ring through his head, swaying him from one side to the other. We then get a glimpse at what appears to be a Rancor…a really f’n big Rancor.
I must say, I was really excited to play the first one, but as feared, all of the work that was done of the amazing physics took away from the story a bit, and I was left a little let down. That said, I still enjoyed the game enough to be totally excited to see what they can do in a sequel.
Head on over to the not-so-dark side to check out the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
