New Force Unleashed DLC...Unleashed

Yeah, sorry, that was pretty terrible. Stop looking at me! Go download Luke Skywalker!

Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars.
Some time back, LucasArts announced two pieces of downloadable content for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. I guess it was right around the point where the game sold approximately eleventy billion copies (rough estimate). The meatier, more interesting of the two packages consists of a brand-new level set in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.

But that's not what you get today! Today is the release of the game's costume pack, which will run you 400 Microsoft points on Xbox Live Marketplace, or $4.99 on the PlayStation Store. Here's what your five bones will get you.

  • Hooded Combat Gear
  • General Starkiller
  • Sith Assassin
  • Imperial Commando
  • Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker
  • Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker
  • Darth Sion
  • Ki-Adi-Mundi
  • Kit Fisto

As far as I know, these are just cosmetic costume changes and don't confer new Force powers or anything snazzy. Download 'em today! Or don't! Brad Shoemaker on Google+

And I won't get any of it!

Posted by AimingWandersly

i have no idea who will buy this stuff. i mean, $5 for a skin? and they don't even move different or have special abilities? i think this is an issue of quantity versus quality that they're on the wrong side of...

Free = that is cool.
Not free = that is a money grubbing, evil scheme designed soley to drain people's wallets.

If it's cosmetic changes only, no thanks.  That's a bit steep for different appearances.

I would, but $4.99 is too expensive.

Posted by daniel_beck_90

no man , thank you very much 

Posted by Espiox

$5 for 9 costumes isn't too bad, but I'll wait until the new campaign DLC rolls out and I'm playing the game again.

Posted by AllThatBacon

I would if it wasn't so much....200 points would've made more sense to me.

Posted by Pibo47
Imperial Commando? Maybe a hint?
Posted by Envoy

Free would of made sense for just cosmetic changes...

Posted by LordAndrew

I assume this is all canon? Darth Vader's secret apprentice is Anakin Skywalker?

Posted by JohnDudebro

Darth Sion? That's pretty cool, that they'll reach back into KOTOR. I'd rather see Nihilus or a fully sithed-out Revan, but that counts for something.

Posted by JoelTGM

Costumes for $5?  I wouldn't pay $5 for the game itself.

Why, the game is good fun...

NEEDS TO BE FREE

Agreed.


Posted by Venatio

I can consider getting that jedi temple add-on but I will not get this

Posted by Shadow71

No Darth Maul, no buy

Posted by darkjester74

Agreed, this should have been free.  My guess is those 2 new levels are going to run 800 MSP.  Boooo!

Posted by John

This is why I lost all respect and hope for Star Wars. Everyone treats it like a milking machine. None of them (starting from Lucas) really gives a boot about it. And if they don't why should we?

Edited by Milkman

$5 for 10 costumes really isn't all that bad. 50 cents per costume...Really, if you can afford this $60 game than I'm sure you spend 5 bucks on costumes if you really want to own these costumes. That being said, I don't own this mediocre game, so meh.

Posted by Prime20

..........ITS 5 BUCKS!!!

Unless you really really really need that foot long from subway this shouldn't really break the bank.

5 bucks for 10 new costumes.
Yeah its your opinion and your money, but for the love of god 5 bucks is too much now?
I could see if it was 10 or 15 but 5?

/rant over.

Sweet, the Jedi equivalent of horse armor!

Hey Brad...

Nice reference there, Trebek...but your mother was still a whore!!!  BWAHAHAHAHA!!!
Posted by Lies

FORCE UNLEASHED?! I LOVE THAT GAME!

Not five dollars for ten costumes love however. On the OTHER hand... Darth Sion...

Posted by TheJollyRajah

It was a nice, decent game in it's time, but I don't think I'll go back to it with all the crazy games out now.

Posted by Babble

Blah, DLC for a single player game... that only changes your appear? Also it costs money? Count me out. This kind of stuff isn't the best kind of thing to release so far from the release.

Posted by Aaron_G

For free I would, 

Posted by Snail

Just skins? Nothing else? Come on!

Posted by TwoOneFive

different abilities? if not then not that cool. 

Posted by zoozilla

$5 to finally see Luke Skywalker actually doing something cool in a video game?

No thanks.

Edited by natural_deadhead

I DOWNLOADED IT AND LOVE IT MUAHAHAHA! I would pay any ammount of money if i could play as a naked princess leia.

Posted by Jedted

If i had the game i might buy this just for the Darth Sion costume.  He was one of the best characters in Kotor 2!

Posted by Jayzilla

how about releasing content for free! that always wins the people over and it makes people who wouldn't buy a game normally buy it. 5 bucks is weak sauce.

Posted by Willy105

FIVE DOLLARS!?!

No.

Posted by shadows_kill

as most people said it should be free. i could see some people buying it but i wouldnt just cause it seems like a waste of money

Edited by natural_deadhead

Only cheap people think 5 dollars is alot of money. If the game was halo and the DLC was a new master chief outfit or something retarded like that all you people would go beg your parents for the money.

*COUGH, HALO SUCKS, COUGH*

Edited by krazedkaoz

should be free but oh well, not buying. its not about the price i just dont give two shits. and i love the game.

Edited by MrKlorox

Cheap? don't forget broke. There are other things I would like to spend 5 bucks on from the arcade that will give me more fun than these trinkets.

I love how people spout bullshit like "if you can spend 60 on a game, you can afford to spend 5 on a set of costumes." These folks have never lived in a low-income area. I buy maybe three boxed videogames a year and I consider myself pretty into my hobby. It's not cause I'm cheap. It's cause I'm broke won't spend money on something that doesn't have a function.

Posted by P_Pigly_Hogswine

You think this is bad? Look at all the skins they've just released for Dead Space. It's terrible. Plus Dead Space is so dark you wouldn't be able to see the skins anyway.

Posted by The_Icon

I dont have the game.

Posted by Seram

The only two costumes I care about are Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan. It would probably be really cool for like the first ten minutes, then get boring again.

Posted by MackGyver

Is anyone starting to see a trend in DLC these days or is it just me? (Soul Caliber 4 anyone?)

Posted by dsplayer1010

$5 for costumes that have no affect on the gameplay. No thanks

Posted by High

Come on Lucas arts Valve gives us meaningful, quality improvements on TF2 for free...why you gotta go and short us?

Posted by CannibalFerox

What? Nobody got the Bill Murray reference?
