345 Games announced, will publish Ugly Americans and new Deadliest Warrior games
MTV Networks has announced plans to launch a new game publisher, 345 Games, to release games based on properties from the Spike TV and Comedy Central cable TV networks.
The new publisher already has two downloadable games in the works, one of which is the second game based on Spike TV’s Deadliest Warrior series.
The game, due out in July for XBLA and PSN, will be titled Deadliest Warrior: Legends, and will feature new warriors from history, new weapons, “a more precise projectile system” and a new campaign mode. It will be priced at $10.
In August, 345 Networks will release a game based on Comedy Central’s animated TV series Ugly Americans, which is set in an alternate world where humans co-mingle with all sorts of monsters.
The game, Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon, will be a four-player co-op shooter, with players trying to prevent the apocalypse by fighting creatures and solving case files.
It’s to feature voice acting from the TV show’s cast as well as a script from the show’s writers. Again, it’s an XBLA and PSN release for $10.
Earlier this year, MTV Networks shut down its MTV Games publishing arm, which was the home of the Rock Band series.
