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.

Maybe they will rip us off by having these game modes unlocked via DLC...

You know, some slimeball companies will do that.

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.

- 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).

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.

I'd rather see a polished single player, then a single player that had glitches and could have used more work and a tact on multiplayer.

Same here , single player all the way before putting in a multiplayer option..
But then again i think a co-op would be sweet if they set it out right.

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.

I think this a fantastic idea.

I really don't like the idea of competitive MP but a co-op campaign (over XBL) would be perfect.

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.


Two there should be; no more, no less. One to embody the power, the other to crave it.

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).

RotS is an underrated game in my opinion. Me and a couple friends still play MP from time to time...
