LucasArts Confirms There Will Be a Demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
A representative from LucasArts has confirmed that there will be a demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, which will be released through Xbox Live and the Playstation Network (sorry, Wii owners). The company wants more people to see the game first-hand, which will hopefully convince them to buy it. According to Cameron Suey, the producer for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions:
“I’m not certain about the specifics, but we definitely want to get this game out into people’s hands,” Suey told us. “There are people who are excited about it, who are going to play it right away, whether they play it (the demo) or not. But I think something that is wonderful is that the gameplay itself is so engaging, people who aren’t Star Wars fans or who aren’t even hardcore gamers, once they get their hands on some of the gameplay and how it works, are really going to be won over by it.”
When asked directly if LucasArts planned to release a demo, Suey replied: “Yeah. We definitely want to get it out there.”
Unfortunately, no word yet on when exactly a demo might be coming. Rest assured though that whenever it does, I’ll be playing the hell out of that thing.
