LucasArts announced that it has released a new single-player level for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Available now for Xbox 360 owners through Xbox LIVE Marketplace and for PlayStation 3 owners through the PlayStation Network, the level features The “Secret Apprentice” in an entirely new mission set in the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant. The Secret Apprentice travels to the Jedi Temple to learn more about his father, and while searching through the rubble of the destroyed building he must confront his inner demons.
Bundled with the single-player level are nine new costumes, which allow gamers to play through the game disguised as several new characters, including: 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
In addition, LucasArts also released a new stand-alone costume pack which includes: 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
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was released on September 16, and has since become a worldwide hit. The game completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force and casts players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice,” unveiling new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy seen through the eyes of this mysterious new character armed with unprecedented powers.
UPDATE:Starwars.com has posted news of the new downloads and our friend, Master Devwi, at EUC has a nice breakdown of all the new content. It should be noted that the EUC breakdown also mentions that downloads for the PS3 should be available on Monday.
UPDATE #2:Click here and see what MTV Multiplayer has to say about the new downloable content for The Force Unleashed and whether or not it's worth the price tag. Excerpt below:
"Is the “Jedi Temple” worth the money? The value of downloadable content is hard to judge. Do you calculate based on the time it takes to play it? By the graphics? By the worth of experiencing a development team’s first learnings from making the game they had just completed? By the pleasure of there being something new to play of a game you beat two months ago?
For $10 I’d want to play the best level of a game. There’s at least one level in the original “Force Unleashed” for which I would have paid that price. But even LucasArts appears to acknowledge with the inclusion of new character skins that their adventure in the “Jedi Temple” alone isn’t worth the full 10.
