Reef Entertainment has today released the first ever shots and a teaser trailer for their upcoming Rambo video game. Rambo: The Video Game will apparently be a “fixed-perspective, first-person shooter and action game allowing players to fill the combat boots of John Rambo on a violent journey through iconic action sequences from the original three legendary Rambo movies”.
Reef Entertainment’s Commercial Director Craig Lewis said:
“For Rambo: The Video Game we are concentrating on authenticity to the films, variety of action and explosive gameplay sequences. By matching classic fixed-perspective play to a contemporary game engine we believe we can deliver a game that matches the pace and action set-piece diversity of the films.”
Rambo: First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part 2 and Rambo 3 will “form the basis for authentic Rambo gameplay comprising shoot-outs, stealth killings, demolition, knife-play and more”. It’s being developed by Teyon and will feature “destructible terrain, cover-based shooting and rag-doll physics to deliver the high-quality Rambo-action fans around the world expect”. A teaser trailer was released with the announcement, though it doesn’t actually show off any gameplay, instead it’s a montage of clips from Rambo movies mostly comprised of Rambo screaming his head off and blasting away at a load of blokes on a turret. Oh. Never mind, you may as well give it a watch anyway whilst you’re here…
Rambo: The Video Game is apparently coming to PC and “consoles”, so presumably that means PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. There’s no date for it yet, but expect more details to emerge at Gamescom in a couple of weeks’ time.
