Armed & Dangerous on the Loose

The Armed & Dangerous Website is online (thanks Frans) with the unveiling of this new action shooter in the works at LucasArts planned for release on the PC and Xbox in the winter of this year "developed in conjunction with Planet Moon Studios." The site offers some screenshots, concept art, models, a section on game info, and a press release, some of which is reproduced here:

Based on a true story, players take on the role of Roman, a cockney criminal mastermind and leader of a gang of accidental heroes known as the Lionhearts. Armed to the hilt with an arsenal of outrageously powerful firearms, Roman and his crew of Robin Hood wannabes - Jonesy, Q1-11, and Rexus - set out to pull off the ultimate heist and are unwittingly drawn into a rebellion against a tyrant king. In the process the Lionhearts learn some treasures aren't worth stealing and some things are more valuable than gold.

"Armed & Dangerous blends an explosive storyline and over-the-top, bullet-splaying action with a twist of humor," says Liz Allen, director of marketing for LucasArts. "The game is a distinctive, modern take on the kind of original titles that have played such a significant role in shaping the unique legacy of LucasArts."

Sounds like a weird game. Fun, but weird. Hope it doesn't end up like B&W.

i agree that it's cool that planet moon are doing another game, but does anyone else think that this looks an awful lot like giants? i mean, it even looks like the same engine. part of me thinks "yay, more giants!", part of me thinks "hey, hang on, this looks like a sophisticated TC!". maybe this is a good thing and i'm being a bit hyper-critical

i'm no cheap woman you know

Will we ever get a mea culpa from Warren Spector?

I've been wanting to know what they were working on, even though I thought it would be XBox only and I wouldn't be playing it. But it's on the PC, too... lovely. Giants is my.. um... 2nd all time favorite game.

Based on a true story !?! A robot, an alien and a cockney criminal set in a fantasy world.

I'll have a toke of whatever it was they were smoking....

All I know is that it's done by PlanetMoon (Giants: Citizen Kabuto), so it should be amusing. And I had thought they were doing an Xbox only game next...
