TheForce.net was invited by LucasArts to a press conference showing off the latest video game for fans of the Star Wars Universe. The Force Unleashed is an amalgam of First Person Shooter and virtual RPG game set in the "dead space" between Episode 3 and 4. LucasArts has been working on this game for several years and the game is just completing Alpha
testing and should be ready for sale by Summer 2008. While TheForce.net suspects that LucasArts could push the release date back, there is a ton of merchandising pressure building that could force the game to the market at that time - fully ready or not.
Spoiler Alert: This pre-review covers a wide range of information about the game, game play, marketing and plot points. If you are not interested in learning "secrets" about the game or what could be hidden within the game do not read further. If you do and are upset with the spoilers - don't say TheForce.net didn't warn you.
