Force Unleashed demo on Thursday

For 360 and PS3.

Activision Blizzard has told Eurogamer that a demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be available this Thursday on Xbox 360 and PS3 and detailed its contents.

The sampler casts you as the Secret Apprentice, sent by Darth Vader to duff up some Jedi bloke who is smashing up a TIE Fighter construction facility. The Force Grip power will come in handy, and no witnesses can be left alive.

This Dark Side focus carries on throughout Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, where our Secret Apprentice gains strength as Vader's student, flexing infinitely more interesting Dark Side powers such as Force Choke and Force Lightning.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is heading to Xbox 360 and PS3 on 19th September. Alternate versions will be available for Wii, DS, PS2 and PSP on the same day.
