Following up on our previous post on the subject, Gametrailers.com provides the trailer for The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition which was announced today and will be headed to the PS3 and Xbox 360 this holiday season.


Big thanks to StarWarsKartikay for the heads up!

Ooooh, and just got the press release as well...

Star Wars?: The Force Unleashed? Expands Again! New Downloadable Content and New Special Retail Edition Coming this Fall!

New "Infinities" Storyline Takes Star Wars? Saga in Unimagined New Directions

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. ? July 24, 2009 ? LucasArts today announced that their hit videogame Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will see further expansion this Fall through a new downloadable level for the Xbox 360? video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PLAYSTATION?3 computer entertainment system. In addition, the company also announced Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, a special new version of the game for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3, that will show gamers the deepest, darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself. Available this holiday season at retail stores, The Ultimate Sith Edition will include all of the original missions found in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well as content previously only available via download and an all-new exclusive bonus level*.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 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 a mysterious new character armed with unprecedented powers. Originally released in September 2008, the game quickly became the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever, and has since sold six million units worldwide.

About the Tatooine Downloadable Content for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Available this Fall via direct download from the Xbox LIVE? online entertainment network and the PlayStation?Network, this new downloadable mission continues the story of The Force Unleashed in a new "Infinities" storyline that takes the Star Wars Saga in an entirely new and unexpected direction.

The mission begins at the end of the story of The Force Unleashed and re-imagines the Star Wars Saga as if the Secret Apprentice had killed Darth Vader and taken his place at the Emperor's side, becoming the most powerful Sith Lord in the universe. The story picks up as the Emperor sends his new apprentice to the planet Tatooine to dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi -- who has been hiding on the planet ever since the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. During their hunt for the reclusive Jedi, players will also explore the depths of Jabba the Hutt's palace and encounter notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett.

About Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition

Due to be released in retail stores this holiday season for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3, Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition combines the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed videogame and three new levels to create the definitive ultimate-evil storyline of the events that occurred between the two classic Star Wars movie trilogies*.

The additional content includes two levels set on Coruscant and Tatooine previously only available via direct download, and an all-new exclusive level available only in the Ultimate Sith Edition package.

The exclusive level concludes the "Infinities" storyline set up in the Tatooine mission, as the Secret Apprentice is sent to the planet Hoth on a crusade to crush the Rebellion once and for all. While on Hoth, players face Luke Skywalker himself while visiting iconic locations seen in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

More information about the game can be found at the official website, www.theforceunleashed.com.

UPDATE #2: Word has come in that Amazon has updated their site with a November 3rd release date for the game and a price of $39.99.

"Includes the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Video Game, 3 all new levels including a level that is exclusive to the Ultimate Sith Edition, Art Book, and Lithograph all packaged in a beautiful tin collector's box - available in limited quantities"

This release date has not been officially confirmed yet, so we will be sure to update you accordingly as more concrete details are available.

(But talk about one heck of a great day if the game does come out on Nov. 3rd. First TCW S1 BD/DVD boxed set and then this - all on the same day!)

UPDATE #3: Has the cover art design for The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition been revealed? According to this story posted on EUC, the listing on Amazon has been updated with a cover design for the game. While it's not official, it is a pretty cool cover regardless.

We'll keep you posted on the final word on the game's cover as we hear it.
