Expendables 2 Game Announced

Ubisoft announces Expendables 2, a video game tie-in with the upcoming action movie they are bringing to PC, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and PlayStation Network this summer. Here are some screenshots, and here's word:

Today Ubisoft announces the debut of The Expendables 2 Videogame. Based on the second installment in Lionsgate and Millennium Films’ phenomenal film franchise, the ultimate elite mercenary shooter is coming this Summer to PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 entertainment system and PC. The Expendables 2 Videogame unites four of the world’s 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.

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. It’s business as usual, 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-quarter combat or while controlling an arsenal of vehicles in exotic locations including Somalian deserts, Burmese jungles, and more, and fans looking to compete for bragging rights can play through several challenges for the top spots on leaderboards.

I wonder if anyone has really ever thought "ALL RIGHT! ANOTHER MOVIE TIE IN GAME! I LOVE THOSE!"

Depends on the game, the demographic, and the style...there are a couple that are pretty decent, alas, most people here are too old and don't have kids to enjoy them themselves.

More often than not, it's about getting the product out the door in time to match the movie release. Quality is sacrificed in the name of a tie in/quick buck. And sadly, people keep buying them...

Considering the movie is out in like August and this is just now announced, and shipping "this summer"? Yeah, that'll end well...


That's the caveat though, when publishers are pitching a product to coincide with the release of another. Most often you would get the red flag to stay away from tie-ins like that, but to lump them all together isn't the right view.
