Activision Unleashes Blade 2 To The Xbox

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 19 -- Vampire hunters everywhere can now rid the world of the undead with Activision, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI - News) Blade(TM)II for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(TM) videogame system from Microsoft. Based on the popular Marvel Comics' sword-wielding super hero who was portrayed by Wesley Snipes in two successful feature films from New Line Cinema, Blade II features a 360 degree combat system, martial arts moves, signature weapons and attacks, players can now annihilate their enemies with all-new moves. The game is currently available in North American retail outlets for a suggested retail price of $49.99 and is rated "M" ("Mature" -- violence, blood and gore, strong language -- content suitable for persons ages 17 and older) by the ESRB. "Blade II is the only game that allows players to take on the role of Marvel's take-no-prisoners vampire slayer," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "Blade's arsenal of weapons and over-the-top moves will allow players to fight their way through the vampire underworld and halt the minions of evil before more lives are at risk." Developed by UK-based Mucky Foot Productions, Blade II challenges players to make maximum use of Blade's special abilities, weapons and martial arts moves to stop the vampire nation's quest to create an all-new form of super- vampires. Players access incredible powers including Shield, Sword and Strength to make themselves unstoppable as they engage in hand-to-hand combat. The game's revolutionary 360 degree multi-directional fighting system allows fans to take on blood sucking enemies as they attack from all directions. Players must also learn to master Blade's titanium-based silver-plated sword, guns, grenades and the boomerang-like razor-sharp glaive in order to eviscerate their enemies. Stunning visual effects heighten the game's visceral thrill.
