Vanity Fair covers Star Wars: The Force Unleashed


Laugh all you want, but it's a big deal when a magazine as mainstream as Vanity Fair dedicates a sizable chunk of content to legitimate game coverage. VF writer Frank DiGiacomo visited Skywalker Ranch to take a look at the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and walked away impressed with nearly everything he saw.

In a massive 4,000-word feature, DiGiacomo covers everything there is to know thus far about The Force Unleashed, from the game's storyline, to its advanced use of three different physics engines, to the people hard at work developing it. Though lengthy, the article is a must-read for anyone following the development of the latest Star Wars title, or anyone curious to watch Vanity Fair up the ante for mainstream game journalists.
