This looks very cool and I can't wait to get it! Loved the Tatooine and Hoth DLC for the first game.

If this is a direct connection from the Tatooine and Hoth DLCs does that mean:

No, because those missions continued from TFU1's dark side ending, starring (now Darth) Starkiller who killed Darth Vader and took his place as the new Sith apprentice. This new will continue from TFU2's ending, and will follow the adventures of the evil Starkiller clone--known as the Dark Apprentice--who killed the good Starkiller clone and was tasked with hunting down the leaders of the infant Rebel Alliance.

Two different stories, though both apocryphal. Thus, Luke's character would be much the same as it is in the original Trilogy, I'd imagine.

The article didn't say it was a direct connection story-wise; rather, it implied that it will be more of a spiritual successor.

Thanks, that helps a little. I was like "ok, at what point in the timeline does this happen, lol.

Question, will there be a special edition of TFU2 with this extra level(s) or can you only download with xbox live?
Cause they did that with the previous game for the Hoth, Tatooine and Jedi Temple mission right?
I just want to know so when I do decide to buy the game, I can get the special edition =/

UPDATE

As found here>http://lucasarts.com/games/theforceu.../announcement/

New DLC Endor level:
Continue the adventures of Starkiller on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as he heads to the forest moon Endor to strike a blow to the Rebellion.

Following the Dark Side ending of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Starkiller returns with his over-the-top Force powers and embarks on a mission ordered by Lord Vader. The Rebellion has arrived on Endor, and the Empire needs the remaining members eliminated. As the Evil Apprentice, players will make their way to the shield generator by taking on Rebels, Ewoks, and Stormtroopers who fight without knowing the powerful Force-wielder is coming to destroy the last remnants of the Empire's greatest enemy.

Screens:
Show spoiler


DLC Character Packs:
The long-time Star Wars gamer will not want to be without the historical and legendary characters included in the new Character Pack for The Force Unleashed II. You might recognize a few of our friends in the screenshots you see – but none are greater warriors than one of them. You know his name – he defeated armies, and those of the Dark Side trembled when his name was spoken.

Admiral Ackbar.

* You also get: Darth Malak
* Luke in Training – with yoda on his back
* Clone Wars Obi-Wan
* Lando Calrissian in Skiff guard Disguise
* Han Solo
* Starkiller in Blood Armor
* Starkiller in Neimoidian Shadow Outfit

I think it's pretty sweet that both DLC will be $1 each, so thats 80msp a piece. I was thinking that only the skin pack would be $1 and the Endor level would be $10 like the Jedi Temple level for TFU1. I think that's the least LA can do with all of the hate they've been getting the past month. Seriously though, the people that want it free, be real. C'mon it's just ONE dollar, TWO if you want everything.

Yeah that would be cool, as well as making all of the extra challenge levels available in these DLC packs. But I got Maulkiller when I got the game from gamestop and it's not very special.

I think the overwhelming grayness of it somewhat ruins it. Why couldn't it just be a regular human-looking Starkiller in that outfit? That would've been so much better.

I'm not a Revan fanboy at all, but I think a Starkiller in Darth Revan's robes mask or no mask would be awesome as a pre-order bonus.

Eh, the problem with Sith robes is that they're all the same, a hooded black bath robe. Sometimes the robe's shorter or has more belts underneath it, sometimes there's a mask under the hood, but basically it's just variations on the same theme.
I actually really liked the Kota costume, with its weird half-skirt. Too bad it has Kota's face as well, I would've much preferred to have Starkiller just wearing the clothes but keeping his own face.

Just focus on making a longer TFU with a better story... Make it open world or something... L.A. hasn't done anything like that till now... SInce it took you what, 2 years??? to give 4 hrs gameplay i guess take 12 years on this one...

Yeah. I don't really see the point of these bonus missions that are based on a non-canon ending. Wouldn't it be better to spend the time and resources making the main story missions longer, better, and more numerous?
Same goes for challanges. They're actually a really cheap trick. In terms of level design they're extremely primitive and easy to make, but by making them super hard and requiring players to practice them a lot they make it seem like there's more in the game than is actually the case. Lots of game time for minimal developer effort. Just my opinion, but I don't like that. My idea of fun doesn't include grinding the same three rooms of enemies over and over, trying to dispatch them 0.003 seconds faster than my current record so that I get a platinum rating.
In terms of outfits, why exactly can't we assemble our own from bits? Jedi Academy had that, what, seven years ago? I guess that's lost technology now.
What I would absolutely love to see is a game with Kotor-style story, dialog, inventory, and level design, but TFU-like combat instead of the lame turb-based mess Kotor itself had. Mass Effect did that for first person shooters, I think it's about time somebody did it for hack and slash as well.

I can't repel awesomeness of that magnitude!

I'm still lacking in a PC that can reasonably play this game, but I wonder... will the DLC be released for the PC version as well?

This DLC was probably originally intended for TFU but since they have already released TFU2, it most likely was reworked to fit into the non-canon ending for TFU2.

LA may still make DLCs to continue with the canon story line, especially if TFU3 really is canceled, but who knows.

The notion of "canon" when it comes to the video games doesn't really matter much to me. As long as it has a "Star Wars feel" to it, I'm in, but what really matters is good gameplay.

The whole "Starkiller" storyline is wildly out of sync with the "canon" anyway, that Vader had a secret apprentice that was basically the most dramatically powerful Force user to ever exist (short of the jacked up Emperor from the Dark Empire series). I remember the good ol' days when Kyle Katarn was considered "over-powered."

It was clever to give him the name formerly used by Luke, and before that the "ancient" Jedi father who was akin to a mythical god character from the early script drafts of the first movie. But beyond that, is it a fun game?

The bonus scenarios are just that, bonus levels. So whether they tie with the main story or not I think is less important. Making it tie in with one of the endings makes it extra cool for those who enjoyed that strand of the SP campaign and just "want more," but I don't see why starting over is that big a deal.

That's why we like addon maps for single player games, because there's fun stuff to be had. We don't just throw them away because they didn't continue with the ending we liked better, or worse... the "canon" ending.

Think back to the original Mortal Kombat games. In MK II, we're supposed to believe that Lui Kang won the tournament and basically only Sub-Zero died. But in the original game it's quite clear that you can kill everyone else and win yourself, regardless of what character you have, and you get an ending. My enjoyment of that game isn't diminished in the least because of the way the future games took the story. If somebody made an MK game now that ignored some previous entry (or entries) in the series, I wouldn't be upset (unless they pretended it wasn't out of continuity). They made a game where the MK characters fight DC super heroes and villains.

So I understand the desire to "know" which parts of the missions flow together with the others, but otherwise I don't care, as long as it's fun.

I don't think it's fair to compare TFU to Mortal Kombat in terms of the importance of the story.
As for why 'we' like addon maps for single player games, I for one don't, precisely because they don't tie in with the rest of the game. They're just slapped on as an afterthought, and that's just lazy. Yes, they're well done, yes, they're fun to play, but I think gaming has evolved somewhat in the past decades and these things are not enough anymore. I remember very well the days of yore when most games didn't even bother with a story and good gameplay was all that was needed. You could fight random stuff like magical brooms that chase you around and nobody thought to question the why or how of it because everyone understood that slow computers and small development teams simply weren't capable of providing that kind of depth. That's not the case anymore, and TFU does give us a story that provides the background for our actions in the game. I think if you go that route, if you decide to build your game around a story, then it ought to be done well. Saying "oh screw it" halfway through and making the rest of the levels random and unconnected is just lazy.
