Endor DLC Announced

Shortly after the games released, pc gamers hacked their way into discovering some hidden content. Lucas Arts has told IGN all about it.

Starkiller returns in the first piece of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 DLC, and IGN has the exclusive announcement and first screenshots. To get the details on this latest addition, we sent over a few questions to LucasArts. They were answered by Gio Corsi, an Executive Producer at LucasArts Singapore.

IGN:The DLC takes place on Endor. Does this mean it is during Return of the Jedi? Will we be killing Ewoks?

Gio Corsi: It does indeed take place on the forest moon of Endor during the time of Return of the Jedi. However, we like to call this an "infinite storyline", much like the Hoth Bonus Mission from the first Force Unleashed game that gave us an alternate take on that iconic battle from the Empire Strikes Back. As Gamers and fans of the Star Wars universe, the infinite storyline allows us a "what if" moment that scratches an itch by rolling the dice with established Star Wars characters or scenarios. It's a pretty sweet opportunity. And yes, there will be battles with Ewoks!

IGN: Is this the first of many add-ons players can expect for TFU2? Where else might we be going as the evil Starkiller?

Gio Corsi: Who knows where the infinite storyline can take Starkiller, there are so many possibilities but right now we are focusing on the Endor Bonus Mission.

IGN: Will the DLC add new achievements and trophies?

Even in death they're so damn cute.Gio Corsi: Absolutely, there are a number of new achievements and trophies. One of the team's favorite is the "Sith Kicker Achievement" but I'll let you figure that one out for yourselves.

IGN: About how long can people expect the DLC to take them to play through? Also, do we get to use our leveled up character from the campaign?

Gio Corsi: The Endor Bonus Mission is comparable in length to the add-ons from the first game. As for the character itself, we leveled Starkiller differently for the DLC since this adventure falls into the "infinite universe." He does have the same abilities as he did in TFU2 which allows Starkiller to start kicking ass right from the get go.

IGN: Why does the DLC always assume players picked the Dark Side ending? Does this mean the light side ending to TFU2 is considered canon?

LucasArts: To be honest, we just thought it was a really cool avenue to explore. Take this bad ass Jedi, make him a true Sith and throw him into an established adventure and watch the sparks fly. It's going to be epic!

Along with the information on Starkiller's Endor adventure, which will be released later this year, we already received word about an upcoming character skin pack that will cost one dollar.

 Kudos to Lucas Arts forum member Rich1985  for finding this info!



  1. You people at IGN are quit stupid...Kudos to Rich1985.....do some more research on the lucasarts forum and you know user -Twingo- found everything out about future dlc's.

  2. Um im not at ign, and i knew about that since day 1. I mentiened that in the begining. I mentioned Rich1985 for finding the article OFFICALLY confirmed the DLC for Endor

  3. This is horrible. Lucasarts is really killing the franchise.

    Not only we paid so much for a half baked game, now they are charging us for the DLC.

    I really hope people will not buy the DLC as a sign of protest. We can't keep supporting these developers blindly if they are not even keen on releasing worthed while products.


  4. The Dlc will be 1 buck
