XBLA Today: The Expendables 2

The Expendables 2 made a big splash in theaters this weekend (I enjoyed it immensely), and today, Ubisoft is bringing the downloadable game adaptation to the PC and the Xbox Live Arcade.

Are you packing enough testosterone to be an Expendable? Lay down your $15 (or 1200 Microsoft Points) for The Expendables 2 Videogame and find out:

Four Expendables (Barney, Gunnar, Caesar and Yin-Yang) are hired to rescue an extremely valuable, kidnapped Chinese billionaire. It’s all business, until all hell breaks loose and the explosive mix of testosterone and kerosene detonates in a massive fireball that never lets up as the relentless action concludes where the new movie begins. The Expendables videogame is a way for fans to experience all of their favorite explosive moments, as their favorite stars, in 4-Player Co-op action.

PSN Today: Expendables 2, Growlanser IV, War of the Monsters, more

Sad news, Grand Theft Auto III was originally planned to be added to the PlayStation Store today, but it’s been delayed. A new release date will be announced soon. Moving on…

This week marks the start of Sony’s PSN Play 2012 promotion and it begins with a bang with The Expendables 2. The plot of the tie-in game will actually lead into this Summer’s blockbuster movie that stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean Claude Van Damme, and many, many more.

On the PS3 Full Games side of the store, Namco Bandai has added the Burnout-inspired Ridge Racer Unbounded to the PlayStation Store.

Also available this week is a PS2 Classic that is definitely deserving of the label: War of the Monsters. The monster battling game was a bit of a sleeper hit back in the day, but it developed a huge cult following that is sure to be thrilled about it’s appearance among the PS2 Classics.

Finally, Atlus has brought their PSP RPG (yes, they still make those) Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time to the PlayStation Store.

Hit the jump for more information on all of this week’s releases and head over to the PlayStation Blog for more details on all of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)

First Expendables 2 game trailer will punch you in the face

Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren aren’t screwing around. They want you to know that a game based on The Expendables 2 is in the works and that you can watch the debut trailer above. All the action of the movie, and none of the veiny arms.

And it’s a good thing Chuck Norris wasn’t in this trailer, or else we’d all need new monitors.

The Expendables 2 will be released on July 31 on the PlayStation Store as part of the 2012 PSN Play promotion. PC and Xbox Live Arcade gamers will be able to download it on August 17.

Expendables 2 tie-in game coming to PC, PSN, XBLA this Summer

The Expendables 2 is getting an action-packed tie-in game this Summer from Ubisoft, and it’s nothing like the Contra-inspired Facebook game the first movie received back in 2010.

The Expendables 2 game is, instead, a top-down, downloadable shooter designed for the PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. One-to-four players (locally and online) will be able to control Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) or Yin Yang (Jet Li) as they attempt to rescue a kidnapped billionaire. Of course, “all hell breaks loose,” and The Expendables are forced to shoot their way through the Somalian desert and the Burmese jungle in a story that leads right into the movie sequel.

The Expendables 2 will be available to download this Summer, probably around the movie’s August 17 opening.
