‘I could have killed 'em all, I could kill you. In town you're the law, out here it's me. Don't push it. Don't push it or I'll give you a war you won't believe..’ – John Rambo, FIRST BLOOD ™ & © 1982 Studiocanal S.A.
London, 3rd August 2012: Reef Entertainment is delighted to reveal further details regarding forthcoming game RAMBO ® THE VIDEO GAME currently in production for consoles and PC.
RAMBO ® THE VIDEO GAME will be a fixed-perspective, first-person shooter & action game allowing players to fill the combat boots of John Rambo on a violent journey through iconic action sequences from the original three legendary Rambo movies.
FIRST BLOOD ™, RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II ™ & RAMBO III ™ will form the basis for authentic Rambo gameplay comprising shoot-outs, stealth killings, demolition, knife-play and more.
Developed by Teyon; RAMBO ® THE VIDEO GAME will leverage contemporary gameplay elements such as destructible terrain, cover-based shooting and rag-doll physics to deliver the high-quality Rambo-action fans around the world expect.
Reef Entertainment Commercial Director Craig Lewis said: “For RAMBO ® THE VIDEO GAME we are concentrating on authenticity to the films, variety of action and explosive gameplay sequences.
By matching classic fixed-perspective play to a contemporary game engine we believe we can deliver a game that matches the pace and action set-piece diversity of the films.
In case anyone needs reminding of what the original ‘one-man-army’ John Rambo is capable of, we have - in association with STUDIOCANAL - prepared a short highlight reel of John Rambo in action from the classic movies”: http://youtu.be/8HnQ_R81i_s
