New video games PS3
Hi everyone! Nice to be speaking with you on the PS Blog! We have been working hard over the last 18-months to bring Rambo fans the best and most authentic John Rambo gaming experience to date. One of the main challenges has been to squeeze three movies worth of classic Rambo action into one PlayStation 3 game. Our goal for Rambo The Video Game has always been to allow players to lace-up Rambo’s combat boots and head-out on an action-packed journey through the iconic action-sequences and story-arcs of First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III.
Authenticity to the classic motion-pictures has been key throughout the development process – and we were greatly assisted by our partners at Studiocanal who spent weeks searching their extensive archives to find original on-set recordings from John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) and Col. Samuel Trautman (Richard Crenna). These recordings provided us with pristine vocal performances from the central characters – ensuring the game will be locked and loaded with all the classic motion-picture dialogue, rage-screams and exclamations fan’s expect. Rambo The Video Game also includes extracts from the classic movie OSTs to ensure maximum authenticity.
We also wanted to ensure that Rambo The Video Game’s gameplay stayed true to the motion-pictures and allowed players to partake in as many of the classic Rambo action set-pieces as possible – everything from shooting-up the Hope Police Station with the M60 HMG in First Blood through to the classic explosive-bow takedown of Lieutenant Tay in Rambo: First Blood Part II and of course ramming the tank into the Russian HIND at the finale of Rambo III.
We want Rambo The Video Game to give players the chance to take-on the classic scenes from the motion-picture trilogy through John Rambo’s eyes. And just as John Rambo was an expert infiltrator – not every mission will be based around pure shooting skills: silent bow takedowns and perfectly timed stealth (lethal or nonlethal) eliminations will be required too.
The gameplay system we have created combines the classic arcade-heritage of a rail-shooter with a contemporary graphics engine and all of the cover-taking, weapon-switching and super aggressive enemies possible on PS3. All of John Rambo’s trademark array of knives, SMGs, LMGS, Grenades and variety of arrow-tips will be on-hand for players to deploy within the game’s 16 Missions. It also supports the PlayStation Move controller so player’s can experience every trigger pull, grenade-lob, knife swipe and bow-pull in the most connected way possible.
