Ubisoft today has announced that they are currently working on the official game based on the upcoming movie The Expendables 2. The downloadable shooter is headed to XBLA, PSN and PC download services this summer and will feature explosive local and online co-op play for up to 4 players.
It looks like the 4 stars of the movie that the game focuses on (Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews and Jet Li) actually have lent their likenesses to the game, though there is no word on if they have voiced their parts at all.
Take a look at the first screens and read on for the details.
The Expendables 2 screens:
Today, Ubisoft announced the debut of The Expendables 2 Videogame. Based on the second installment in Lionsgate and Millennium Films’ phenomenal film franchise, the ultimate elite mercenary shooter is coming this summer to PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC digital download. The Expendables 2 Videogame unites four of the world’s most legendary mercenaries – Barney Ross, Gunner Jensen, Hale Caesar and Yin Yang – in a feast of explosive over-the-top action, authentic to the Expendables franchise.
Building on the universe created in the high-octane, star-studded movies, The Expendables 2 Videogame invites gamers on an adventure to rescue an extremely valuable, kidnapped billionaire. It’s all business, until all hell breaks loose and the explosive mix of testosterone and kerosene detonates in a massive fireball that never lets up. The adventure concludes right where the new movie begins, creating a continuous story experience for fans of the Expendables’ hard-boiled brand of action.
Players can join up to three friends locally and online to experience all-out action in cinematic, close quarters combat or while controlling an arsenal of vehicles in exotic locations including Somalian deserts, Burmese jungles and more. Fans looking to compete for bragging rights can play through several challenges for the top spot on the leaderboard.
