Force Unleashed Set For Fall Release

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has an official U.S. release date of Sept. 16, 2008, in the United States, LucasArts announced today. Star Wars geeks in Southeast Asia/Australia and Europe will have to keep their light sabers sheathed a bit longer (until Sept. 17 and 18 respectively).

If you just can’t wait to get your hands on The Force Unleashed, a sneak peek at the game, including new details, will be unveiled on Spike TV over the next few days to coincide with the network’s airing of all six Star Wars films.

Billed as a new chapter in the Star Wars saga rather than just a standalone licensed game, The Force Unleashed is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will take on the role of Dart Vader’s "secret apprentice," assisting him in his quest to rid the universe of those meddling Jedi.

Here’s a schedule of Spike TV’s planned airings of the Force Unleashed special:

- April 6 at 7:58 p.m. ET/PT – between the premiere of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith
- April 11 at 10:52 p.m. ET/PT – At the end of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope
- April 12 at 12:00 a.m. ET/PT – throughout an episode of GameTrailers TV with Geoff Keighley filmed at LucasArts’ headquarters in San Francisco
- April 12 at 5:06 p.m. ET/PT – before Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope
- April 13 at 5:06 p.m. ET/PT – before Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back
