About The Extra Content
The first of the three additional single-player missions included in the Ultimate Sith Edition is set in the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant. In this mission, Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice turns to the Jedi Temple to learn more about his father, and while searching through the rubble of the destroyed building he must confront his inner demons.

The second extra mission continues the story of The Force Unleashed in a new "Infinities" storyline that takes the Star Wars Saga in an entirely new direction. The level begins at the end of the story of The Force Unleashed and re-imagines the Star Wars Saga as if the Secret Apprentice had taken Darth Vader's place at the Emperor'ss side, becoming the most powerful Sith Lord in the universe. The story picks up as the Emperor sends his new apprentice to Tatooine to dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has been hiding on the planet ever since the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. During their hunt for the reclusive Jedi, players will also explore the depths of Jabba the Hutt's palace and encounter notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett.

The final new level concludes the "Infinities" storyline set up in the Tatooine mission, as the Secret Apprentice is sent to the planet Hoth on a crusade to crush the Rebellion once and for all. While on Hoth, players face Luke Skywalker himself while visiting iconic locations seen in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

Additional added content includes new costumes for the Secret Apprentice and new character models that allow gamers to play as one of many legendary Star Wars characters including Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, Jango Fett and C-3PO.

  • "Exclusive" as in timed release that'll eventually be DLC or as in I need to throw LA more freaking money to buy a "newer" version of what I already have?

    I'm actually not happy about this. They run a "special" on DLC to grab stragglers who haven't already purchased it and then announce a "new" edition with more stuff that includes the fire sale DLC. FWIW, I purchased the DLC a while ago.

    Also... will the "new" version include trophies for the PS3?

    Finished the game on the PS3. Got the 360 version because there was never any word as to if the DLC would come to the PS3. Still slogging my way back through it. I would have preferred the PC version a year ago. Good for those PC owners who wanted it.

    I can't help but feel that Star Wars fans have been mislead and taken advantage of again.
