Rambo: The Video Game gets new screen, actually shows Rambo
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.
