Star Wars is heading to next generation consoles (yes we're shocked too), with LucasArts' UK distributor Activision today confirming reports that a next-generation adventure is in development.

It will be called Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, having been unveiled in the latest issue of US magazine Game Informer, and will focus on the Dark Side, taking place between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.

In it, you'll be able to admire Darth Vader's rise to power from your role as his apprentice, which will see you seeking out and destroying the last Jedi in the Universe.

It's not known when we can expect a release or even who's been tasked with developing it, but Activision expects more information to be made available soon.

Chances are that what we see will bear some resemblance to the next-generation concept demo shown behind closed doors at last year's E3. The video demonstrated how Force powers might appear on new console hardware, and you can still admire the action over on Eurogamer TV.
