LucasArts today released the promised donwloadable mission for the Xbox 360 version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, along with another set of character skins.

The Jedi Temple Mission Pack, priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10), brings Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice to Coruscant and the ruins of its Jedi Temple as our action game protagonist searches for more information on his father.

The Mission Pack includes a number of new costumes, such as Temple Exploration Gear, Cybernetic Reconstruction Apprentice, Sith Training Gear, Mace Windu, Darth Maul, Qui-Gon Jinn, Dark Stalker, Lightsaber Training Droid and Combat Training Droid.

A separate 400 Microsoft Point ($5) Character Pack adds a variety of new player skins, including Republic Trooper, Tatooine Luke, Ben Kenobi, Jedi Master Plo Koon, Count Dooku, Jango Fett, and C-3PO along with three new costumes: Utility Combat Suit Apprentice, Animated-style Apprentice, and Spirit Apprentice.

LucasArts has not stated when the PlayStation 3 DLC will hit, though there's a good chance it could arrive as part of the PlayStation Store update due later today.

Update: LucasArts has announced that the PlayStation 3 DLC is now available, though it has yet to appear in the PlayStation Store.

  • All in all its more worth $5 than $10. It took me 54 minutes to beat the level. There are quite a few puzzles and neat set pieces that make it a good level. The fact it takes place in the jedi temple is very appealing and the setting is gorgeous. The enemies are all stormtrooper varieties so you feel like a badass throughout with having to fight difficult robots or the like. The story was weak, you talk to your father and go through the jedi trials, I was hoping that the trials would have been more in depth, but they simply encompassed moving a sphere with force grip around a line without moving it off the path and defeating your dark side self There are a few new achievements that will get me to replay the level, so it will give me probably 3 hours of enjoyment in total. It also starts you off with many force powers that you need to earn throughout the game, so if you have not, you do not start out as a weakling. All in all, its a good addition, and the extra characters including Mace Windu and Darth Maul are sweet. If you enjoyed the game you cannot go wrong with this one, although it is not worth the price. If they are going to charge 1/6 of the price of a full game, I expect 1/6 of the content.
