Hard-Hitting Reboot of Gritty Crime-Action Series Shipping in North America on April 27.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (March 29, 2010) - Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., announced today that Dead to Rights®: Retribution has gone gold for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. A reimagining of the multi-million unit selling crime-action series, Dead to Rights: Retribution puts players in control of two playable characters, vice cop Jack Slate and his canine companion Shadow, as they fight to uncover a conspiracy that threatens to destroy Grant City. Deadly on their own, Jack and Shadow are even more formidable as they team up in this no-holds-barred neo-noir journey.
Gameplay in Dead to Rights: Retribution is brutal and relentless, with a seamless combat system that allows players to fluidly transition between third-person shooting, hand-to-hand combat and AI partner control. Jack has a myriad of tools available to him that can be used in any combination, offering a wide variety of choice in how he can dispatch enemies in any combat situation. Players will also have the ability to play as a ferocious canine, Shadow. At various points in the story, the gameplay switches up as players take control of Shadow, interjecting a completely different style of combat than Jack’s. Shadow utilizes his heightened senses to stalk enemies with his stealth abilities and tears enemies apart with his visceral attacks.
Customers who pre-order the game at participating retailers will have special access to downloadable packs of extra content that expand the gameplay experience with the final retail game. The “Jack Pack” is available through EB Games Canada and GameStop in-store or online pre-order and features health boosting GAC (Grant City Anti-Crime) armor for Jack Slate and a guns-blazing “action mode” that has explosive rounds. The “Shadow Pack” is available for pre-orders at Amazon.com and includes stealth camouflage for Shadow as well as a “noir mode” that transforms graphics into a dramatic black, white and blood red color scheme. Additional post-launch DLC will also be available and details will be released in the coming weeks.
