Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition and Additional DLC Announced

I didn't see this one coming. LucasArts has officially announced that they will be releasing additional DLC for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed this fall.

Taking a what-if approach, the DLC will contain one new level set on Tatooine after the retail game, and from the perspective of the Dark Side ending. Starkiller, having eliminated Darth Vader and now at the Emperor's side as his apprentice, has been dispatched to Tatooine to hunt down one of the last remaining Jedi Knights, Obi-Wan Kenobi. During the level, you'll be able to explore Jabba's palace where you'll also encounter Boba Fett.

LucasArts has also announced Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition, which will be coming to retail shelves this holiday season. Not only will it contain the full retail game as well as both DLC, it'll also include one exclusive new level not available anywhere else. This new level continues the storyline of the upcoming Tatooine DLC and sees Starkiller dispatched to Hoth to crush the Rebel Alliance once and for all where players will face off against Luke Skywalker himself.

You can view the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition below, and screenshots can be found on the official site under Media Gallery>Screenshots. The above story is taken from the official site's Game Info>News section.

While this all sounds really cool, and it does for any Star Wars fan, I have no intention of purchasing the game yet again. Too bad they didn't launch this as a collector's edition last year; then I would have bit.
