Have you ever wanted to kill Luke Skywalker?  Ever since he cried like a little baby when he found out Darth Vader was his father, you know there was a little part of you that wanted to strike him down.  LucasArts wants to give you that opportunity this fall when it releases the “Ultimate Sith Edition” of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

To find out more about this new edition of the game, and to see the official announcement trailer, hit the jump.

For those of you who don’t know, The Force Unleashed was the fastest selling Star Wars game ever released, selling 6 million copies world wide.  It was only a matter of time before LucasArts decided to milk it a little bit more for all it’s worth. But the “Ultimate Sith Edition” is more then just a typical re-release; as it will not only include the original game, but also two brand, new never before seen levels, as well as all the previously released DLC.

[Spoiler Alert:]

The two new levels follow the story path chosen at the end of The Force Unleashed if the player decided to kill Darth Vader and become the Emperor’s new apprentice.  As the new right hand man of the leader of the galaxy, you will be tasked with heading to Tatooine to kill Obi-Wan Kenobi, and to Hoth to kill Luke Skywalker.  Along the way you’ll make a stop at Jabba’s Palace, and run into Boba Fett.  The game will also include the previously released “Jedi Temple” DLC level, as well as all the bonus skins and costumes.

If you already own the original game, and don’t want to purchase it all over again, the Tatooine level will be available on launch day as paid DLC for the PS3 and XBOX 360.  Unfortunately, the only way to play the Hoth level, and to get a chance to kill Luke Skywalker, is to buy the “Ultimate Sith Edition”.

You can check out the video above to see the first official footage of the new playable levels.  Trust me, it’s definitely worth a look.  The game will be launching this fall on the XBOX 360, PS3, PC, and Mac.

    I’ve had some great arguments with James Pinnell about the quality of the original. ‘It was lame!’, the cries. ‘It was awesome!’, I retort. In any case I will more than likely pick this DLC up, although sticking Hoth on the disc alone is a shit move.

      I just realized sotenhimg in reading all these backposts and articles and whatnot.Phantom Menace may just be my favorite Star Wars film.All of the Star Wars films except two have, in my opinion, at least one point where they slow to a crawl. Even Empire, which I usually cite as my favorite based solely on Vader’s revelation and the Yoda sequences, loses my interest in Bespin (I was never particularly fond of Calrissian OR Fett). Of the two exceptions, Sith (often cited by me as a close second favorite) has the opposite problem: There’s so much going on a lot of it seems rushed and I find I can’t take a second to breathe.So that leaves Phantom Menace where, from day 1 I was enthralled from ebginning to end. Even the dry political stuff was exciting to me because it was still a race against time. Not to mention a lot of my favorite characters are in this one: lovably grating Jar Jar, comically irascible Watto, noble but fun Qui-Gon, and most especially Sebulba (who ranks #3 on my top favorite Star Wars characters of all time for no other reason than I think he has the coolest creature design in the universe).Phantom Menace is, in my opinion, the most perfectly paced film of the saga. Even scenes where it might normally turn slow, the film has, tru to its name, a phantasmal malevolence underscoring each second. There are still moments in the others that I like better than moments in this one, and I still love all six films as a whole. But while the whole of the others may be better than the sum of their parts, this one is completely equal, and completely awesome.

  3. I know for a fact that you will buy, love, and tell me in detail of how awesome it was Jickle ;)

  4. I’m intrigued to play this, despite knowing I will hate it. I think deep down I hate myself.

  5. I absolutely loved The Force Unleashed. I actually played it through twice to beat it on Sith difficulty. I’m not sure I’m gonna get this new “Sith Edition” though. I hate that all the levels won’t be available as DLC.

  6. I played the Demo on PS3 and found it to be enjoyable – sometimes you just need to swing a lightsaber.

  7. Loved the original – will be intrigued to see where the story goes next, so may rent this as I traded my copy in.

  8. I never played the original so this has become a must buy for me. That is total shit that they aren’t making all the new content DLC. It’s like developers want to make DLC look evil, when instead they could be using it for the powers of good.
