Darth Vader Can Sure Take A Beating

The very talented animation team at Blur Studio have produced two more cinematic trailers for upcoming Star Wars title Force Unleashed II. They're very pretty.


The one above shows that Stormtroopers combust just fine, while below, well...I've seen Darth Vader lose a lot of limbs in my time, but I don't think I've ever seen him take a beat-down like that.


It's funny how much these CGI and in-engine trailers hint that this dude isn't just a regular clone, but is actually the real Starkiller resurrected somehow. Hell, even the demo's opening cinematic seems to hint at it.

Either way, it's nice to see that his lightsaber has been upgraded from a shiny glow stick into the Stormtrooper-hacking weapon of mass destruction that the Jedi Knight games perfected.
