If ever on a day I was feeling depressed or felt my masculinity was, for whatever reason, challenged, then I had the perfect solution: Rambo. Watching those movies filled with constant gunfights, blood splatters, explosions and overall violence put me back on my manly track. That’s not to say it inspired or encouraged me to behave similarly, but it uplifted my mood. You dig? Anyhow, Reef Entertainment is now undergoing the development of a Rambo video game called, well, Rambo: The Video Game.
They’ve recently sent a new screenshot and detailed a few things over to VG247. New game play and combat features were a list of the things informed. Below is the screenshot where Rambo is in a dark, camouflaged jungle with his trusty dagger, which is – I hope – about to be driven unmercifully into the unsuspecting victim’s throat! Oh, that sounds purely ruthless.
Here are the details below, courtesy of VG247.
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.
This sounds promising. It seems as if the movies hugely influence and formed the frameworks for this game. All classical Rambo elements such as explosions, massive guns, muddy terrains, and nasty “Bosses” will all be a part of the experience. No word on what consoles or a date of release was given yet, but more details will flow smoothly as time passes. This game looks good, and having been a fan of Rambo for years now, it’s got my attention!
