Rambo: The Video Game developer Reef Entertainment has sent us a new screenshot from its Stallone-flavoured cavalcade of bandanas, blood and bro-splosions. They also spooled off a list of new gameplay features.

In a release sent to VG247, the studio explained some of the game’s new combat features:

Shoot-Out: All-out action in fixed-perspective shoot-outs – players will need to make tactical use of cover-options to survive the enemy onslaught. Mini-missions, multiple-paths, quick-time-events, interactive scenery and more than 25 enemy types will keep player’s adrenaline-pumping.

Destruction: Unleash heavy weapons such as the M60, explosive-tipped arrows and time-bombs. Cause some wide-spread damage against hard-targets. Take control in iconic scenes from the films such as Rambo’s destruction of the Police Station in First Blood.

QTE-Fight: Authentic fight scenes from the movies are recreated in third-person, quick-time-events sequences.

Fixed-Gun & Vehicle: Take aim of gun turrets and rocket launchers in an array of authentic fixed-gun and vehicle sections from Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III

Stealth-Hunt: Fixed-perspective infiltrations through forests and enemy-camps armed with Rambo’s trademark Bow and Knife. Dodge search-lights and time your bow attacks perfectly to silently eliminate enemies from the shadows. Knife sections will give players the choice of lethal or non-lethal force.

Bosses: Boss showdowns and take-downs from the films – everything from Rambo’s single, explosive bow strike on Lieutenant Tay to shredding Russian helicopters with the DShK 12.7mm Heavy Machine Gun.

What do you think? Does it sound awesome? Can you almost smell the gunpowder discharge wafting through the cracks in your monitor? Let us know below.

    @2 Funny, that’s the one bit that puzzles me too. Are we talking shooting-gallery styled shoot outs with bad guys popping up?

    Edit: But I really would like this to not be shit.

    Afraid that it is going to be a rail shooter. Well, I have always wanted a Rambo game in curren gen power. A first day meta of 70 and above = day 1 for me.

    @4 which is disappointing. This could have been something much much more than a quick cash in :(

    It’s an on rails shooter. This company only makes rail shooters. However, miss rail shooters. Just not sure RAMBO is the ip you turn into one…

    If it’s not a mixture between MGS, Uncharted, Batman Arkham and Tomb Raider (2013) featuring Stallone’s voice acting, I’m not interested.

    QTE – Nice of them to be upfront about it – lol at thinking it promotes the gameplay. I’m out.

    I was hoping for an original story to be honest, not reimagining of movies. Still, I gotta say that screenshot, as small as it is, looks surprisingly good. Or maybe I just had my expectations way too low.
