The Force Unleashed DLC You Really Wanted Is Here

Please cut my head off!
Last time LucasArts dropped some downloadable content for The Force Unleashed--and it wasn't that long ago, let's be honest--all we got was a stack of new costumes to slap onto your Force-wielding badass. Kind of a hard sell at $5, or the Microsoft equivalent, especially if you finished the game beforehand.

As of today, there's some honest-to-goodness new Force Unleashed content to play through (and I think we've all heard by now that content is king). It's a whole new level set in the Jedi Temple on capital world Coruscant, where you as the apprentice are looking to find out more about your father, and "confront demons" in the process. By demons, they might mean stormtroopers.

You may download the pack for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network or 800 MS points on XBL Marketplace. LucasArts did ya a solid by throwing in a bunch of freebie costumes in with this pack.

  • Apprentice's Temple Exploration Gear
  • Apprentice - Cybernetic Reconstruction
  • Apprentice's Sith Training Gear
  • Mace Windu
  • Darth Maul
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Dark Stalker
  • Lightsaber Training Droid
  • Combat Training Droid

Some decent ones in there. They also put out another $5/400-point costume pack with the following (the ones you really want).

  • Apprentice’s Utility Combat Suit
  • Apprentice – Animated
  • Spirit Apprentice
  • Republic Trooper
  • Luke Skywalker – Tatooine Gear
  • Ben Kenobi
  • Plo Koon
  • Count Dooku
  • Jango Fett
  • C-3P0

I almost want to pony up to play as C-3P0. Almost.

So why didn't they include all this stuff with the original game?

#3 Posted by waterglass (14 posts) -

so they can suck more money out of you?

#4 Posted by AllThatBacon (513 posts) -

Waterglass: Yeah, but then again, no one is forcing you to pay them anything.

#5 Posted by Coldbrand (215 posts) -

Because Publishers don't give a shit anymore and only seek to profit off us?

#6 Posted by darthzew (304 posts) -

I'd buy this if you could play as Chuck Norris or some other non-Star Wars character. Maybe Captain Picard or Dr. House? 

#7 Posted by JDUB_XL (460 posts) -

This does not change the fact that most people who care about this are already done playing it.

#8 Posted by Captain_Fookup (1519 posts) -

This should all be free to make up for the piece of shit that this game is.

#9 Edited by Sokkratez (26 posts) -

DUDE Mace Windu. Does the lightsaber turn purple?


edit: Holy poop there's screenshots, and it DOES! I'll buy this game now when it's a bit cheaper ;)

#10 Posted by Aaron_G (1611 posts) -

Can't wait, but that is expensive.

#11 Posted by spiceninja (3055 posts) -

I don't know why but my favorite DLC or unlockables have always been alternate costumes. I'll be getting these ASAP.

#12 Posted by Willy105 (4688 posts) -

C-3PO.

This game is now GOTY.

#13 Posted by dsplayer1010 (2227 posts) -

I wanted to be charged two months after the game's release for a level that was already developed and should have already been in the game?

#14 Posted by Milkman (16527 posts) -

Letting you play as C-3PO almost just made me go buy this game. 

#15 Posted by Media_Master (3283 posts) -

YEAH, ALL THESE EXTRAS SHOULD HAVE BEEN PART OF THE GAME IN THE FIRST PLACE!!

I'M TIRED OF ALL THIS 'EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOADS' JUST HAVE IT IN THE GAME

#16 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

definitely should have been in the game in the first place, this is the shit i feared DLC would cause. 

#17 Posted by fightstrife (28 posts) -

thats cool and all but does anyone other star wars nerd getting a little nerd rage when you see all these other jedi holding their lightsabers all weird like and not how they hold them in i dunno the 1000000 other star wars games....

nerd rage.... building....

I'm about as die-hard a Star Wars fan as the next guy, but I can't see getting all worked up over a couple of skins for the game. Not that I didn't find Force Unleashed enjoyable (I did), but not all downloadable content is created equal.

Can't actually say I wanted any Force Unleashed DLC at all.

#21 Posted by Bucketdeth (8004 posts) -

This is the problem with DLC, developers know the less amount of content they can put out at launch, the more they will sell in DLC, they probably had all this developed from the start and just decided not to include it so they could get every last drop of money out of this game.

#22 Posted by Lies (3866 posts) -

Here is the first skin pack for those interested. I'll probably buy these also because this game has some sort of demonic hold over me.



#23 Posted by natural_deadhead (272 posts) -

It F'ing sucks that they didnt put it in the game to begin with because they want to just suck the money from everyone. I want this content though so I guess I am going to end up buying it.......frigging money hungry douche bags in the world make me sick.

#24 Posted by MitchyD (49 posts) -

Hilarious. Half of that stuff is in the PSP version.

#25 Posted by Pudge (865 posts) -

If you go on teh GameFAQs, you'll see that all these skins (well most of them) were in the Wii version of the game outright. I know it's technically not the same game, but considering the Wii-360 ratio of game content, that equals money grubbing to me.

#26 Posted by Slique (129 posts) -

I'm going to have to buy this for the sole reason alone that it's destroyed my perfect 1000/1000 score.

#27 Edited by ahoodedfigure (4238 posts) -

Do the costumes come with voices?

*decapitation*

"Oh, dear.  I'm terribly sorry!"

#28 Posted by DocHaus (1314 posts) -

Bah, they couldn't have released this stuff when I rented the game and beat it in a week?

#29 Posted by marcusfriendly (87 posts) -

This is going to be bad just like the force unleashed!!

#30 Posted by atejas (3057 posts) -

The DLC I wanted is for him not to hold his saber like a retard. But he's too DARK AND EDGY for that.

#31 Posted by DukeTogo (1504 posts) -

Until a pack where the lightsabers actually cut dudes instead of replicating a glowing stick, I don't care what characters are in it.  C3PO with a saber is choice though.

#32 Posted by kagato (895 posts) -

Im glad they put some worthwhile content up for download, just finished downloading the level but need to get the game back of my bro lol.  Only thing that annoys me about the extra characters is that they dont hold the lightsabre the right way, they still stand and fight like Starkiller.   Maybe a bit geeky but id have liked them to hold them properly.

#33 Posted by Coleslaw893 (409 posts) -

10 bucks?

No thanks.

#34 Posted by Lies (3866 posts) -

here are pics from skin pack 2, for those interested :)


#35 Posted by TheWesman (378 posts) -

I remember secret characters and secret levels in games.  Now you have to pay for them?  Me no likey!

#36 Posted by MaddProdigy (1041 posts) -

Tight. Jango Fett would be sick, he had tight armorz. Or i could buy cheezburgers and not waste 10 bucks on a game i don't play anymore

#37 Posted by MrMiyagi (929 posts) -

Whoa, I didn't even realize this was out. I'm downloading it now.
Just the mission pack. Costumes are useless.

#38 Posted by Archleone (42 posts) -

so absolutely no chance at a wii version?
