Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is set for a release this October 26th for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, Wii and DS. By pre-ordering the game at Gamestop, you will get an exclusive character skin as well as a silver lightsaber crystal that isn’t just for show. The character you get is ‘Maulkiller’. The character was basically made up with a short lived lifespan just for your Force Unleashed 2 enjoyment. Was his story ridiculously created with a character plot that doesn’t make sense and would never really happen in the true Star Wars Universe? ..Yes.. But at the same time, for the game and as a pre-order incentive, I think it is actually pretty cool.. strictly for the game of course and you can’t forget the Maulkiller Silver Saber crystal as well. Here are the details straight from Gamestop:
Purchase Star Wars The Force Unleashed II and receive a GameStop exclusive in-game Maulkiller skin and silver saber crystal.
- Maulkiller Skin – In the cloning facilities of Kamino, Darth Vader created a warrior of unparalleled strength and power by combining the genetic material of Darth Maul, former apprentice of Sith Lord Darth Sidious, with his own apprentice, Starkiller. The resulting aberrant clone possessed traits from both warriors, but the crude fusion of two disparate Force users quickly produced physical and mental instabilities that led to the unfortunate clone’s destruction. For a brief time he struck fear into the hearts of all who faced him, even Lord Vader himself.
- Maulkiller Silver Saber Crystal – The perfect companion to the Maulkiller costume, the silver crystals make his dual lightsabers look like an extension of the silver Zabrac styled tattoos that cover his body and face. This powerful crystal allows the player to consume less Force Energy when using Force Powers so that he can devastate his enemies.
