On October 26 LucasArts unleashes the hot new game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the follow up to their hit videogame released in 2008.
As ruthless apprentice to Darth Vader, Starkiller was mercilessly schooled in the ways of the dark side, commanded to exterminate the last of the purged Jedi Order, and groomed for the ultimate Sith power play: assassination of the Emperor. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters—until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal.
Juno mourned Starkiller as dead…but now he is back, purged of all memories and programmed to kill. And as fate brings Juno and Starkiller closer to reuniting, with Darth Vader determined not to lose his assassin a second time, they will both have to make a stand. The prize is freedom. The punishment for failing will be eternal enslavement to the dark side of the Force.
There are all sorts of questions before us in this new game. What really happened to Starkiller? Has he been resurrected somehow? Is he a clone? Will he choose the light or dark side of the Force? You won’t need to wait until October 26 to find out. Del Rey and Lucas Books are proud to release the novel Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II on October 5. Written by #1 New York Times best selling author Sean Williams, the book is as exciting and thrilling as the video game.
Can’t wait that long? Read an excerpt from the novel now on the official Star Wars website and listen to the Random House Audio excerpt read by Jonathan Davis.
Will Starkiller fulfill his destiny and help Darth Vader destroy the Emperor or will he re-energize the Rebel Alliance and rekindle his love for Juno Eclipse. Find out on October 5 when the novel based on the thrilling new videogame from LucasArts is unleashed!
