Players will get a chance to work for Darth Vader himself, as the man in black�s new apprentice. The game fills in some of the gaps between Episode III and Episode IV, with a storyline full of loyalty, betrayal and the Force. It will feature both established and new characters, and its story "has some incredible revelations."
The game will be using "Digital Molecular Matter," an extremely detailed and realistic graphics engine developed by LucasArts in conjunction with ILM, Pixelux Entertainment and NaturalMotion specifically for the game; and a new A.I. system named "Euphoria". Pre-visualization demonstrations were shown at the LucasArts booth at E3 2006. The game developers refer to it as "the Force Unleashed."
From the preview shown, the game will take place sometime after the rise of the Galactic Empire, and allow players to control Force-users. Motion images seen to date highlight the engine's use of Pixelux's Digital Molecular Matter, showing the Force-users engaging in advanced telekinesis and Force lightning.
