Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is an action-adventure game developed by LucasArts and part of The Force Unleashed multimedia project. It was initially developed for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 consoles and on iOS, second-generation N-Gage, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, and Java-equipped mobile phone handhelds. The game was released in North America on September 16, 2008, in Australia and Southeast Asia on September 17, and in Europe on September 19.
The game saw great commercial success which led to a Nintendo Switch release down the road. This version is basically an enhanced remaster of the Wii version, developed by Aspyr Studios, and is set to be released on April 20, 2022.
According to the story of the game, the player plays as Starkiller, the secret apprentice of Darth Vader. With an unending hatred nurtured by Vader himself, Starkiller has been trained to hunt down and destroy the Jedi.
Starkiller uses a powerful lightsaber of his own that, while incredibly powerful in his hands, can also be customized to look aesthetically pleasing as per the player’s tastes. Today, we will be talking about one of the crystals in the game, the Compressed Red Lightsaber Crystal, and how it affects the properties of Starkiller’s lightsaber.
Compressed Red Lightsaber Crystal
In order to acquire the Compressed Red Lightsaber Crystal, players need to check level 2 thoroughly. They would have to arrive there, look around and search for it a little bit. If they aren’t able to find it yet, it can be found on the Massive Battlefield area near the Giant Crashed Ship. It can even be seen through the cracks.
There is another variant of the Compressed Gold crystal called the Unstable Red crystal. This one exists in a whole other location. It can only be accessed after getting to the level 3 area of the game. Thankfully, players would not have to look around too much to find this one. The Unstable Red crystal sits in the Big Pit area, atop the highest level in this location.
As mentioned before, this effect is purely aesthetic. It is one of the color crystals in the game that only alter the look of the lightsaber and there are ways to obtain other crystals that go to different slots, which affect your lightsaber’s stats as well, but that’s a story for another day!
