Codemasters celebrates Halloween early with the release of Clive Barker's Jericho™

Just in time for the fright-filled holiday of the year, Codemasters today announced that its long-awaited action horror game Clive Barker's Jericho™ is now shipping and will be available from retail stores this Friday, 26th October, for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Games for Windows®.

Clive Barker's Jericho is a spectacular blast from Barker's cannon of nightmares and an interactive experience that mingles the darkest elements of his creative works with an ambitious, age-spanning story for mature gamers and horror fiction enthusiasts.

Clive Barker's Jericho dispatches gamers to the Middle-Eastern city of Al-Khali, where the most ancient of evils has resurfaced; causing intense paranormal activity that has caught the eye of the military. Controlling the Jericho squad, an expert strike team skilled in both conventional and paranormal warfare, players fight their way through slices of time on a gruelling journey as they make their way toward the heart of the evil.

En route, gamers encounter the horrific armies of hellish denizens that now rule the city and corrupt everything they touch. As the squad incrementally approach the source of evil, players will have to rely less and less on traditional weapons and instead focus on thecombined psychic talents of the Jericho team.

Ahead of the game's arrival on Friday 26th, sample a slice of its supernatural assault with the playable demo, now available for the Xbox 360 from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace, the PLAYSTATION 3 system version from the PLAYSTATION®Network, with the Games for Windows® demo available from the official game website www.codemasters.com/jericho (in Downloads).
