Do you think there will be co op or Multiplayer in the Force Unleashed 2 ?

Well I heard from somewhere multiplayer, but nothing about co-op.

Yes. On an interview, they gave a hint about multiplayer, but nothing about co-op.

Jeff

Well nothing is confirmed, but there are rumors about "online support", which makes me think multiplayer. Dunno if it will be co-op or competitive though. Some kind of "horde mode" like from Gears of War 2 where you and a friend take on waves of enemies would be pretty fun.

Ghost

Hmm, but then it would kinda ruin the fun of Single Player, pwning everybody by yourself. I would be all for a MP though, if it was made Jedi Knight Style.

I vote both. But I'm going to agree with Jeff, an individual co-op mode would be best.

If you do co-op, who plays along side Starkiller? :confused:

I think Co-op would be pointless...Starkiller is already incredibly powerful and works best without any distractions. I do really like the idea of multi-player like Jedi Academy.

We know they started multi-player for TFU 1 so I presume they will have it in TFU 2

You do realise we are not talking about storywise, but about game modes, right?

The Wii version of FU1 had multiplayer. It was called "Two Player Duel Mode" though. I only want multiplayer in FU2 though.

I'd be happy with something like the ROTS game's duel mode. Me and my friends still play that.

Split-screen co-op would be amazing.

DarthSlinky
03-14-2010, 11:50 AM
What enemies would you fight on co-op? It would be ridiculous...take down a AT-AT, 2 star destroyers, few hundred stormtroopers, some shadow troopers, darktroopers, incendiary troopers, commanders, a rancor, and a group of very angry mandalorians. :eek:

Co-op:
I think co-op would be pretty exciting. You know, a friend comes over, you put on ForceUnleashed2 and you're able to choose between campaign or just mission. That gameplay style is from Lord of the Rings 3 : Return of the King, and it was really cool! You could play campaign missions (there were more enemies than in singleplayer ) or just a selected area full of incoming enemies.

Multiplayer:
I don't really care about multiplayer, but I think people would wanna see it in. I'd like to see some modes like Team Deathmatch or Siege, where the player would choose their jedi character and join the fight.

Why? For the people who want co-op they should put it in. If you don't want to play co-op then don't play it.

Co-op is so retarded, it should stay only with Lego Star Wars. TFU is meant to be a Single player game, not a two-player jockey. Now multiplayer I am liking, but only if it is Jedi Knight style. Hands down, we still love serving the massive pwnage like in the old Jedi Outcast.

Who is to say the TFU is meant to be SP or MP? LA can do whatever they want with it!

Personally, I love co-op games and I hope TFU 2 will have the option to play in co-op.

Because you say so? :rolleyes:

Because you say so? :rolleyes:

No, because most co-op games fail. Republic Heroes was terrible, and it was co-op. Just so you know, this was an opinion, not really a fact.

Who is to say the TFU is meant to be SP or MP? LA can do whatever they want with it!

Personally, I love co-op games and I hope TFU 2 will have the option to play in co-op.

TFU has an engine which works only with SP, if they did co-op, they would have to do an entirely new engine. Plus sp you don't really have too much distractions and whenever I play co-op other people just screw around so for me, SP is the way to go for TFU. Plus the engine of TFU was part of why TFU was so likeable. More popularity means more profit for LA which is what the whole company is all about.

I wouldn't mind if TFU had a multiplayer mode, maybe that would be a different way of play, but the way I see it the best way they can do it is Jedi Knight Style, because still so many player play JKII and JKA multiplayer online with others, with different types of matches. Because the costumes and the different saber colors suggest they would do a Jedi Knight Style multiplayer, as this game was fast paced and had select abilities per button, which is what Jedi Knight did in the first place. This all the more suggests it probably would be Jedi Knight Style multiplayer.

Also seeing the main character wielding two lightsabers, there may be a possibility that there will be the twin-blades as well, like Jedi Academy where you can build a single hilt, two single hilts, or twin blades.

Right... Lego Star Wars was co-op and was not a fail, NSMB was co-op and was not a fail. Your point?

TFU has an engine which works only with SP, if they did co-op, they would have to do an entirely new engine.

Source?

Plus sp you don't really have too much distractions and whenever I play co-op other people just screw around so for me, SP is the way to go for TFU.

A game may have co-op, yet you can play it singleplayer.

1. Did you not read that I said it was my opinion?

2. Source? Examine the freaking engine, TFU's engine is very similar to Jedi Knight. The movement, fast paced, power/ability arrangement, a lot more suggests it.

3. Co-op games fail at single player. You have to have some useless bot following you which doesn't do **** to help you when your in a jam. Represented in Lego Star Wars and Republic Heroes

I very much doubt there will be a co-op mode, but MP sounds very likely. Although I would love a co-op mode as well, anyone remember the epicness of Jedi Power Battles co-op?

Not necessarily. Look at all of the Halo games. You can play co-op in all of them but if you play SP then there isn't any extra AI.

Ztalker

Co-op could be done by having player 1 control starkiller normally while P2 has some other extra functions.
Maybe a little combat drone...or maybe tagging enemies for combo's. But that's a far stretch.

Multiplayer will probably be a duelling mode.
Maybe they could add a face/clothing editor to create your own Jedi and have a Jedi Outcast/Jedi Academy multiplayer with TFU graphics en physics. Would be awesome.
So I'm guessing Multiplayer only.

Nice topic btw. Co-op in a Star Wars game. Worthwhile to think about.

The most we will get is a Jedi knight like multiplayer where you can choose to play as characters from the story: kota, vader, ect

If it was ever going to be a co-op i think it would be sweet as if Vader , The Emperor and Starkiller had a mission where they went to wipe out some wookies lol (everyone bags the wookies) would be cool to have them both at your side kicking hairy wookie but :)

Hmmm...do I smell Survival Mode?
On Kashyyk, fighting undenging waves of Wookiees with famous characters...
Non-canon as hell, but frying, slashing, teabagging Wookiees sounds awesome!

I go for just multiplayer...But this time I hope they have more than just duels. I would like to see some Jedi Knight series multiplayer.

If possible, yet highly unlikely, I would love to see a siege mode like in JKA that was so much fun.

AlexDM
06-03-2010, 12:03 AM
I hope it is something like Metal Gear Solid - You have to admit, Metal Gear Solid 4 had a good Multiplayer until they began to add-on some stuff that was broken...{Cqc Ex}

If this game did a multiplayer like MGS4 i'd be in heaven...

Zwier Zak
06-04-2010, 06:36 AM
I think that if they don't confirm it on e3 there will be no multiplayer. Why? Because there would be not enough time to build up the hype and convince people to preorder. Also it's not listed on the info page.

I'd like both...playing this online with other players, just like with CoDWAW co-op, would be sweet.

I'll definitely think about buying the game if they include this online co-op mode.

I wish there was, but apparently there won't be any.

If anyone is curious, this is what Multiplayer looked like in The Force Unleashed for the Wii:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS7NJoUGZko
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS7NJoUGZko

It was just your basic 1 on 1 deathmatch duel.

Coop would be awesome, though. There's only so much replay value in a single player campaign, even if the main draw of the game is "how many creative ways can you kill stormtroopers."

So just having duels would be rather boring, but still... better that than nothing.

Nope what?

A Blue Castle representative told Joystiq it does not comment on potential business relationships. Today, during a Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 demo, executive producer Haden Blackman told Joystiq that the team "definitely talked about all possible features" for a Force Unleashed sequel but ultimately they decided to focus on a "really solid" single-player experience. Blackman says he personally feels that multiplayer and co-op are "hugely important" and he would be "surprised if we didn't see some multiplayer and co-op somewhere down the line" in the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed franchise.

Ever heard of an update? <.< Games do those sometimes you know and really

+1 for them working first more on a Solid single player gameplay first, before they even work on multiplayer.

Nope as in; they're not going to have multiplayer or co-op for TFU2. They'll probably have it for the Wii like they did with TFU, but not for the 360/ps3/pc.

Right, but don't get your hopes up. He wasn't talking specifically about having multiplayer or co-op for TFU2. For all we know they will probably come out with TFU3 and have multiplayer/co-op for that game.

Highly unlikely, never heard of a single player game having an update for multiplayer.


I want multiplayer for TFU2 just like everyone else, but from what I've read it's not going to happen.

AlexDM
06-20-2010, 05:41 PM
- I think its to soon to assume that they would do a TFU3, if it was TFU3 it would probably not have to do with Starkiller...which they could do but they need to see how sales do for TFU2 first.

- They could do multiplayer for TFU2 as an update, think about it, TFU2 is using clones = Character Customization within a tank = already a good way to start multiplayer, with a cool / nice way to use customization. I will just wait and see for the future if they do or don't.

We can only assume, I've watched multiple interviews with Haden Blackmen talking about TFU2, referring it as "The Emperor Strike Back" for his star wars force unleashed saga and hinting that it's going to be a trilogy.

The various folks saying that they're GLAD there is no multiplayer strike me as rather. Why is it a "good thing" that there's no multiplayer? Are they against having options in a game? I don't see how the LACK of multiplayer increases the lifespan of a game or adds replay value.

It's not like people are going to be modding new single player adventures for this title after release (no word on any modding tools, like its predecessor).

Frankly, it seems like people are just trying to deflect any possible criticisms from this game when they say stuff like that.

That said, there have been other examples of games in which no functional multiplayer was available out of the box, but was added in patches later on. Let's say the multiplayer isn't complete by the release date, but they work on it later and finish it up.

I've heard the Wii version of TFU used a different engine (along with the PS2 version) from the PS3/360/PC version. Perhaps that's why they didn't just port over the MP module. But then again, why was the Wii the ONLY one with it? It's not as if the other versions would have been incapable of having two player deathmatches on a set of basic maps (with throwable objects) using the player models and saber options already available in the game, plus a handful of powerups.

Is it because they don't see a big market for this on Xbox Live or the PS Network? After all, I'm pretty sure the Wii stuff was strictly offline. Or is there (I'm just dreaming here, I know) a new online Jedi game in the works that they're afraid this might cut into?

Then again, I think the odds are slim that, "The Old Republic" will satisfy the cravings of saberists. That game looks like it has fantastic cinematics, but the game itself looks rather cartoony, almost reminding me of Team Fortress 2 (obviously not that caricatured, but still).

Kurgan

Highly unlikely, never heard of a single player game having an update for multiplayer.

Some examples of games that added multiplayer in patches:

"Deus Ex" and LucasArts' own "Outlaws," plus "Heroes of Might and Magic IV."

Sure, I'm pessimistic, but it's not like it would be without precedent to do something like this.

Ok this might just be me but personally if they do ever bring out co-op i would want it to be a completely different sort of character as your companion rather than a jedi. Some sort of bounty hunter or trooper that way you have two different ways you can play through the game.

They could even put in different routes in some levels you can each take and the bounty hunter/trooper can unlock more abilities the same as the jedi such as more powerful grenades.

I'm sure this idea will be shot down by you all but i just think it would be cool and add a different team play aspect to the game.

If there going to do co-op it's best to do it, like Dante's Infenro.

A separate trial/horde like mode.

While I don't necessarily like the idea of co-op for Force Unleashed, I don't see why it would be bad to have it as an option. What I would really like would be a horde mode like in Gears of War and Halo, or a duel mode like in Revenge of the Sith.

MP is about beating the hell out of other players over the internet right? Free-for-all and team-deathmatch, capture the flag, all those modes?

IMO, co-op will be two players fighting side-by-side to complete the SP missions--well, unless there are co-op only missions. Much remains to be seen, unless we can make the TFU2 team spill their guts here.

I'd love to see both.

The "Episode III Revenge of the Sith" game (on multiple platforms) had Coop AND (1 vs 1) deathmatch in addition to the single player formula. Heck, even Star Wars: Obi-Wan had 1 vs 1 as an option.

In fact, The Force Unleashed may have been the first "Jedi" game, that lacked any multiplayer options (except on the Wii).
