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 Yellow Lightsaber Crystal, and how it affects the properties of Starkiller’s lightsaber.
Compressed Yellow Lightsaber Crystal
In order to acquire the Compressed Yellow Lightsaber Crystal, players need to check the level 2 area of the game. They would have to arrive there and look around and search for it a little bit. If they aren’t able to find it yet, it is after the Massive Battlefield area and the Trash Expulsor, in the second large area, way up on a massive elevated platform.
There is another variant of the Yellow crystal called the Unstable Yellow crystal. This one exists on a whole other location. It can only be accessed after getting Kota. This crystal is on Bespin, another location players would have to look around a bit to find. The Unstable Yellow crystal sits on top of a huge support beam on Bespin and with a little careful searching, players should be able to see it.
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!
