Well the background image on the Force Unleashed 2 website was updated.....sorta.

Anybody recognize the monster behind Starkiller now.

Looks like the site got another update.

Pretty much cementing that it is the creature from the trailer.

Looks very slick. Cant wait till we get more info on it. But then again I am more interested in TOR. I seriously cant wait for that game.

Rinku
02-21-2010, 02:03 PM
Interesting...

Yeah I agree that the most recent update cements it as the creature from the trailer.

DarkStarMojo
02-21-2010, 06:06 PM
Oddly enough, it's reverted to the original background image. I wonder if they plan to do something like this every week or so until the site goes live (which I'm hoping is sooner rather than later).

Arannor
02-23-2010, 04:15 AM
@DarkStarMojo ~ That's probably what they will do at least until E3, kinda like how Lionhead had weekly teasers on their website just before announcing Fable 3 at GamesCon last year!

Shem
02-24-2010, 04:59 AM
Well, that "so called update" isn't there when I check it. It's just Starkiller.

Harkonnen07
02-24-2010, 05:03 AM
Yeah for some strange reason last Saturday it switched back to the normal backdrop and has stayed like that since.

Not sure what the point of all this was.

Harkonnen07
03-17-2010, 02:58 PM
Okay background has changed again. This time showing chains around Starkillers Gauntlet.

This makes me think that it's gonna be something to do with Starkiller being imprisoned as a slave and has to fight for his freedom...?

LordOfTheFish
03-18-2010, 10:36 AM
Or possibly some form of weapon? Or just a design? Or nothing at all. We may not no until it's released.

Any coming up soon?The next shows I know off the top of my head are PAX East which is next week, and then E3 which is June 15-18. I would imagine we'll get some info at one of those since we didn't at GDC.

Harkonnen07
03-18-2010, 09:33 PM
Well it was updated again this time with a sound file. Now you hear Darth Vader breathing when you first go to the page.

Harkonnen07
03-19-2010, 04:07 AM
To go with the sound file, Vader has appeared as well now.

03-19-2010, 07:34 AM
Then they've gotta be chains that are imprisoning him, why else would Vader be there?

TKA-001
03-19-2010, 09:56 AM
Because he looks cool and they want cool **** on their website before it exists.

It reverted back to just Starkiller again.

Cool new background, sucks that I missed it myself when it was up!

Makes me believe that he never died to begin with (or was brought back to life) and Vader had him imprisoned for what ever reasons.

No, it hasn't.

Jeff
03-24-2010, 02:38 PM
Yeah I am guessing they are just changing it over and over to get people talking, while the images are probably related to the story, the way they are rotating them probably is unrelated.

Harkonnen07
04-20-2010, 07:32 PM
This was posted elsewhere on the forum, but I felt I should post it here, just because all the others are here, unleashed website updated again. Jungle background, looks like Dagobah, but don't know for sure.

Arannor
04-20-2010, 09:18 PM
It does look very much like Dagobah, no doubt it is though. I would have to assume that this would confirm that Yoda will make an appearance in this title.

JediAthos
04-20-2010, 09:21 PM
they're toying with use...Lucasarts does stuff like this just to mess with our heads...evil bastards.

Arannor
04-20-2010, 09:41 PM
So Yoda's quotes in the trailer and now a supposed Dagobah background are just lies?

Harkonnen07
04-20-2010, 09:45 PM
To go with the update on the facebook page is this line...

" The fog drifts. The vines are growing. Creatures all around. Where...am I?"

I suppose it's Starkiller talking of his location.

JediAthos
04-20-2010, 10:59 PM

Nothing new today it seems, unless was water bubbling by his one elbow the other day.

Either way no update.

Harkonnen07
04-22-2010, 05:09 PM
Update:

Now the sounds of a lightsaber swings are on the website and blue and red flashes come from one of the tree cave things?

DarthSlinky
04-23-2010, 12:18 AM
This is definitely Dagobah, its got the dark side cave, the real question now is, what did Starkiller bring with him?

Arannor
04-23-2010, 01:13 AM
Starting to get interesting! Looks like the site may begin to launch a lot more info next month. Let's hope so!

To add to the lights in the hut there is this message on face:

"The light is flickering. I am not alone here."

Blue and red flashes on the right (lightsaber noises come along with it).

DarthReign
04-24-2010, 12:33 PM
YES!!! He will most definitely be trained by Yoda! I wonder who he will see in the cave? Wouldn't it be awesome if they did like a prologue mission where you play as Yoda instead of Vader? Like the first one?

05-22-2010, 12:39 AM
there's just one problem with what i see here, an what i've read in the Star Wars EU books, Vader was Against Cloning Force Sensitives inc. Jedi or Sith, an that was seen in the additional small books in the Legacy of the Force Series, it was More of what Palpatine Wanted, an wanting Vader to Lead them, as we know Thrawn Cloned another Luke Skywalker, an then there was the clone of Jorus C'Boath in the Thrawn Trilogy, it doesn't reveal who cloned him, but was understood the cloning was the Emperors Idea, even if you watch through the movies.

Arannor
05-24-2010, 01:33 AM
I just discovered some secret images on the official website. I do not know how old/new these are but it seems that the background will change every 1-2 minutes to show 1 of 3 images in a negative/inverted look.

I have taken screen shots of all 3 images to share, they are posted in order which I first saw them in.

Clone Facility.

First looks like a room, a second looks like a passage. Third is probably from Galen's point of view.

check the new update. Galen awake in a clone-tank

Arannor
05-26-2010, 05:39 AM
Not only that but at the bottom click on | Learn More | it will take you to the previous site which has been updated with a menu with the following:

*Subject 1157> takes you back to Galen Marek in a clone tank site.
*Info> Has the official description of the game as well as product info
*Trailers> Still just the announcement trailer
*Screenshots> Just Starkiller on Kamino right now
*Facebook
*Purchase Now

Edit: There seems to be a small menu on the right hand side of the tank with four clickable buttons. The first one is a data recording. The other three are mini-games which when completed reveal flashbacks from the first game. The mini-games don't seem to be re-playable.

Harkonnen07
05-27-2010, 02:00 AM
I can't figure out two of the mini-games. I got the simon says one though.

Arannor
05-27-2010, 02:12 AM
Yeah I had a tough time at first but then I noticed in the lower right hand corner of the mini-games there seems to be what looks like a key board. The space bar is highlighted< hint, hint

Harkonnen07

Arannor

I'm sure there will be a lot more. The next row below the first set of buttons are spinning circles (kinda looks like a loading ring). There are also several more below as well but blank for now.

Speaking of rancor... remember that in some old comic the empire have some modified rancor things that protects the Throne world.

Also, my vision of the Good Galen vs Bad Galen fight ...

Oh, from afar, the little poster with Galen's head appearing between two lightsabers make him looks a bit like Gordon... then again Galen dual-wielding two crowbars would be silly.

It's a proxy droid recreating her image.

Well in the first one even the "Proxy" image still looked like her. My point is that some one else may be modeling for Juno in this game.

IDK, some thing just makes me assume that there could be a bit of a darker side to him. When Starkiller asks him where Juno is and he replies he doesn't know, his tone just sounds heartless. Also between the time Starkiller asks where is she and Kota's reply there is a breif image of Kota with his hands above his head, as if striking at something or some one. May be he did some thing to Juno?

06-30-2010, 04:49 AM
one of the visions we can see Starkiller in the room, what is familiar to the place what we can see in the website. if it's right, that we are the clone/one of the other clones (from the trailer), we'll see Galen front of us at least one update...but it's just my suspection

truJedi
06-30-2010, 06:24 PM
Just a thought... Considering lucas arts have said that this storyline is a more personall one compared to the first, i wonder if Galens Father will be included or have anything to do with the game this time around. I feel its a very unexplored part Galens storyline...

PoiuyWired
07-01-2010, 04:03 PM
Galen's dead is dad.

Well, first off, not everyone believe the Galenin the story is a real, or unaltered, ex-hero force user that we know of. Most people assume/seen/felt that he is dead.

By all means Juno can be working for the Empire even after the story.

JediSithLordAdas

Site update. Entry recording 77 states that Vader has given evacuation orders for the return of subject 1138.

I remember hearing that too in the site update & wondering if in the game we are subject 1138 galen the original, who will be chased by subject 1157 if you look at the betrayal trailer, an maybe Galen will face this clone on Dagobah which he will have to kill, or maybe a twist to it, even if in the game we will be 1157, when reachin dagobah, it will show defeat scene between the 2 Galens, 1 the original the other the clone, an the Original Survives the Cave Confrontation, an Pretends to Portray Subject 1157.
well we will soon find out when the game hits our consoles, an it will be interestin to read the canon of the books when they come out.

TKA-001
07-15-2010, 01:16 PM
I think it's much more likely that 1138 is another crazy clone who busted out somehow.

If he wasn't a product of the project cooked up to create a stable clone of Galen, then why would the original apprentice be given a designation like the clones being grown? If anything, wouldn't he be called Subject 1 or something?

GalenMarek
07-15-2010, 02:11 PM
1138 was Starkiller's code while he was on the board of the Empirical(after Vader impaled and throw to the void of space)

TKA-001
07-16-2010, 11:24 AM
So what? That number's been used fifteen times already in games and books for a variety of completely unrelated things. What's more, there's absolutely nothing in-universe to connect that project on the Empirical with a cloning-related one on Kamino.

Raz Agul
