Darkwatch Set For 2005 ReleaseVia the Sammy Studios E3 2004 Line-Up announcement: Sammy Studios will showcase the following games at E3 2004: * "Darkwatch," for the PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system* and Xbox(r) video game system from Microsoft(r)**, is the company's internal development debut. Created by the team who founded the Carlsbad-based studio, "Darkwatch" is an original first person shooter combining the Western and Horror genres to create a cinematic experience with unparalleled depth and game play variety.

At E3, "Darkwatch" will debut a live game demonstration in a replica of an in-game haunted church. The experience is designed to highlight the inspired premise and features sure to establish it as "Most Wanted" at the show. Tickets for free admission to the theatre will be distributed inside badge inserts for all E3 attendees, and audience members will be eligible to win a video game collector's dream; a one-of-a-kind "Guilty Gear XX # Reload" arcade machine. Developed by Sammy Studios, "Darkwatch" is slated for release in Spring 2005 and is not yet rated.
