Ubisoft has announced the debut of The Expendables 2 Videogame. Based on the second installment in Lionsgate and Millennium Films film franchise, the ultimate elite mercenary shooter is coming this summer to PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVEArcade, and PC. The Expendables 2 Videogame unites four of the worlds 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. When this was rumored a while back I was hoping it wasn’t true but turns out that it is. I hate video games based on movies because they always suck, the only saving grace about this title is that it’s a downloadable game so they won’t try to rob folks for the price of a full retail title.
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. Its 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.
