DeathSpank is back in The Baconing

By Stephany Nunneley, Wednesday, 25 May 2011 17:30 GMT

Hothead games has announced a new DeathSpank adventure which tasks our hero with finding the Fires of Bacon and destroying the evil power of the thongs.

In “The Baconing”, DeathSpank goes up against Anti-Spank and meets up with new acquaintances and old friends along the way.

The new adventure includes four new bosses like the Minorque, a new insane difficulty level, and new locations like The Forbidden Zone, The Forest of Tomorrow, Barnacle Lake and others.

A new sidekick named Bob From Marketing seems volatile, as he can shoot “laser eye beams; eat dead bodies to restore health; and eat live bodies as an additional attack option.”

Improvements have been made to the combat system, and players can use shield bash, deflect ranged weapons back at enemies, and perform charged attacks at enemies. Players will also be able to use both choice and opportunity when attacking enemies this time around.

Hothead told Kotaku that this new adventure includes 100 new quests, a new storyline, over70 characters, 80 new weapons, new areas and the aforementioned new difficulty level.

DeathSpank: The Baconing is slated for a summer release on PC, Mac, PSN and XBL.
