Red Steel 2 to be bundled with WMP, per Ubisoft press event

A Red Steel 2 trailer was shown at Ubisoft’s E3 presser.

It showed a desert, a swordsman controlled by the player surrounded by enemies. Swordsman pulls out a gun, hits baddie with sword and shoots him while he was down.

That’s the dual-wielding weapons thing the devs have been talking about. The harder you swing the sword, the harder you hit.

It’s also bloodless, but brutal. You can knock enemies into the air, follow him into the sky, and back down.

In the demo shown, a guy was pulled by a motorcycle, almost hit by an 18-wheeler, escaped before an explosion, and he’s up and ready to fight.

Game runs at 60 frames per second and will be bundled with MotionPlus at launch.
