I normally try and think of a spiffy title for articles but this one…well…it takes care of itself. In all honesty, though, it sounds like an amusing game. In this follow-up to the previous DeathSpank, you’re set out to search for the “six mystical thongs that are corrupting the universe.” Sounds horribly kitschy but the screenshots for it look pretty decent.
The next in the DeathSpank action RPG universe was announced recently by EA and Hothead Games. Read on for more.
You play as DeathSpank, leaving a path of havoc and destruction in your bloody wake. The environments you travel between are varied and sound like a nice mix to keep things fresh – as fresh as they can be in a hack & slash game. Collect booty as you stomp along and bring in a friend to help you in the quest for the *ahem* thongs if you like.
Incidentally, if you download DeathSpank: ToV during its first week, you’ll get two free downloadable content – which include a new level and character you can play as. The game itself is $14.99 on the Playstation Network (downloadable now) or 1,200 points on Xbox LIVE Arcade (available 9/22). For more info, check out the DeathSpank site.
