Reef Entertainment has revealed further details regarding forthcoming Rambo: The Video Game, currently in production for consoles and PC. According to the publisher, Rambo: The Video Game will be a “fixed-perspective” first-person shooter (FPS) videogame 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.
First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III will form the basis for authentic Rambo gameplay comprising shoot-outs, stealth killings, demolition, knife-play and more. Developed by Teyon, Rambo: The Video Game will leverage contemporary gameplay elements such as destructible terrain, cover-based shooting and rag-doll physics to deliver the high-quality Rambo-action fans around the world expect.
Reef Entertainment 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.”
In case anyone needs reminding of what the original ‘one-man-army’ John Rambo is capable of, Reef Entertianment, in association with STUDIOCANAL, have prepared a short highlight reel of John Rambo in action from the classic movies, available just below. Rambo: The Video Game is set to be playable at Gamescom, Cologne, later this week and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
