GameSpot also had an opportunity to see the updated version of KOTOR 2 at the press event and posted updated impressions, featuring a new planet called Onderon, new force powers, and a description of Darth Sion.
This area served as a proper showcase for two new Force powers: scream and fury. The scream power is an area-of-effect attack that damages characters around you, with the amount of damage it causes reduced the farther your enemy is from you. Fury, on the other hand, is basically a berserker rage-style attack that increases your attack. The fury power also boosts the number of bonuses you receive while in the state--the damage you cause feeds into it (yes, this is a dark side power). To really drive the point home, you'll see a hazy red filter on the screen while you get your fury on.
Scream? Wouldn't it look kinda silly if a Sith Lord starts screaming like a banshee?
