Force Unleashed: Vader worst father ever

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Image 1Yoda was a tough but fair mentor to his padawan Luke Skywalker and he grew up as a kick-ass Jedi Knight. Now what would happen if your mentor was Darth Vader? Ok, imagine being raised by Darth Vader and then given a light saber and having mind-boggling control over the force. Result, Star Wars: Force Unleashed.

One thing’s for sure, being padawan to Darth Vader can’t be easy. Even though the apprentice says he is committed to the Dark Side, Vader won’t be an easy master. You’re gonna get a whoopin’ from both your enemies and the guy who was the Dark Side’s rallying point for years.

Vader even subjects his apprentice to psychological torment, playing him to an Imperial pilot named Juno Eclipse, to see how love would affect his alliances. Hayden Blackman, project lead of the game, comments: “He’s Vader. He’s like the worst father figure imaginable.”

Developers explain during the San Diego Comic-Con that because the protagonist is a “secret apprentice,” he is expected to kill Imperial troops as well as rebels to avoid being found out. They also said that there will be a lot of familiar faces although did not name specifics. As for being able to play Darth Vader himself, Blackman simply stated that we “stay tuned.”

Expect an all out demonstration of the force in this game. Blackman describes it as “amped up, out of control [and] over the top.” The game will be released spring of next year for the PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP and Nintendo DS.
