Default Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Coming to PC and Mac this Fall


Aspyr's release of the blockbuster action game will pack new stages and bonus content.


Aspyr Media and LucasArts will bring the hit game Star Wars?: The Force Unleashed™ to PC and Mac gamers for the first time ever with the release of Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition this Fall. Developed for PC and Mac and published in North America by Aspyr, Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition combines the original Star Wars The Force Unleashed videogame with three new levels set in iconic Star Wars locales and a host of new costumes and character models. This special edition of the game will show players the deepest, darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself.

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 this mysterious new character, who is armed with unprecedented powers. Originally released on multiple platforms in September 2008, the game quickly became the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever, and has since sold six million units worldwide.

About The Extra Content
The first of the three additional single-player missions included in the Ultimate Sith Edition is set in the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant. In this mission, Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice turns 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.

The second extra mission continues the story of The Force Unleashed in a new "Infinities" storyline that takes the Star Wars Saga in an entirely new direction. The level begins at the end of the story of The Force Unleashed and re-imagines the Star Wars Saga as if the Secret Apprentice had taken Darth Vader's 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 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.

The final new 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.

Additional added content includes new costumes for the Secret Apprentice and new character models that allow gamers to play as one of many legendary Star Wars characters including Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, Jango Fett and C-3PO.

Aspyr? Ugh, why the heck would Lucasarts partner with a horrible outfit like them?

Otherwise good news.

Obviously developers are seeing that the death of the PC was greatly exaggerated, and now they're trying to make up for their past mistakes.

As for Aspyr doing the port, I don't see why they would do a poor job... they may not have a lot of AAA titles on the PC, but they've ported loads of games to Mac and I'm pretty sure they've done a good job of it: http://www.aspyr.com/product/product_listing (Hint, sort by Platform).

I'm really tired right now, but what did I miss? SW:TFU is coming to PC, right? After LucasArts said there would not be a PC version? If that's not what the thread says, then I'm definitely going to bed because I must be more tired than I think

Are they saying that you can play the game as C3PO?

Wonder how that will work...C3PO: The most powerful Sith Lord in the universe.

ugh, that looks little bit ugly since it looks like they did Darksector for the PC and never supported the game after the release and fix the FOV issue.

True, but it's not like they have to actually program the game; they have a pretty good background for porting, and I don't think the Mac versions of Call of Duty, et al are any different than the PC versions, so if it's basically a port of the 360 version plus some extra levels, it shouldn't be especially difficult for them to do (crosses fingers).

They were responsible for publishing (at least in NA) the abomination of a port that is Dark Sector.

Their support policy consists of denying culpability and blaming the customer for as long as they can, and then when they can no longer make excuses, start lying.

Luckily I don't think they're doing the port, I think that's still up to a Lucasarts internal tem and Aspyr are strictly just publishing/distributing the game. Though that seems odd as Lucasarts have published their own games for years, so I don't know what's up with that. The concern is that if support has to go through Aspyr and if they're responsible for funding further patches we're f*cked unless the game is flawless on release. It seems that Aspyr simply does not believe in supporting the products the sell - even when they're reponsible for it.

Looking here it seems that Aspry is only a publisher, so in the case of Dark Sector, wouldn't it be Digital Extremes who are the jerks who won't patch Dark Sector?

Though I honestly don't know why I even give a rat's ass what people think of Aspyr. The only game published by them that I own is Defense Grid: The Awakening and it's well supported by the developers 'Hidden Path Entertainment'. I guess I just want this game to be good, so I want people who are saying Aspyr's going to make it crappy to shush just for a little while longer

Also, I don't understand why LA isn't publishing it either.

Why wouldn't Lucasarts publish their own game?

Looks sweet, I'd get this if it's a value title.

I watched the videos on YouTube of this game on a 360/PS3 (not sure which it was) and it was sooooooooo boring! Not interested at all.

the xbox 360 version would be the easiest to port.
