.Fans and gamers can experience the stunning Jedi action of the upcoming
movie Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith on May 5, 2005 when
LucasArts releases the companion video game in advance of the movie’s
opening on May 19th. The Star Wars: Episode III video game features

Closely following-and in some cases going beyond-key story elements of the
upcoming film, the Star Wars: Episode III video game allows players to
indulge themselves in the Star Wars universe in a way only the gaming medium
can offer. All of the Jedi abilities of both Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan
Kenobi are available, including devastating Force powers and advanced
lightsaber techniques involving robust combo attacks and defensive
maneuvers. With ease, players can perform a wide range of amazing
combination attacks in all directions, including the skill of blocking or
deflecting ranged weapon attacks, plus the ability to use lightsabers to cut
through doors and interact with a variety of other destructible objects
unique to each world. Use the Force to lift or throw objects, push, pull,
throw or confuse enemies and even to attack using interactive elements found
in the environment.
As Obi-Wan, players wield a powerful lightsaber as they struggle to save the
galaxy from darkness by using the Force to control enemy actions and
focusing the power of the light side into swift and precise lightsaber
attacks. As Anakin, players will amplify the future Darth Vader’s Jedi
skills and lightsaber techniques by giving in to the dark side of the Force.
Using dark side powers, players can attack with devastating shockwaves,
crush and burn enemies, overpower hordes of enemies in epic battles, and
defeat even the most skilled Jedi Masters in one-on-one duels.
Working closely with famed Star Wars stunt coordinator Nick Gillard, the
development team is creating the most authentic lightsaber combat ever, with
choreography taken directly from the films as well as many new stunts
created exclusively for the game under the auspices of Gillard. The game
