The most unnerving thing about the impending Rush'N Attack
is that we've never quite known when to expect it. To make matters worse, updates went cold
just as soon as we learned of the new threat
-- a plot 25 years in the making. Konami has alleviated some of our anxiety -- or perhaps just the opposite
-- by confirming with Joystiq that the new Rush'N Attack
is indeed going down ... loadable
at the end of March. Yikes!
Rush'N Attack: Ex-Patriot
is scheduled to strike PlayStation Network on Tuesday, March 29, followed by its launch on Xbox Live Arcade one day later (March 30); at which point you can take a stab at it for $10 (800 points).
Developed by Vatra Games (Silent Hill: Downpour),
this sequel to the 1985 Cold War platformer drew comparisons to Shadow Complex
when it was first unveiled last April. While certain similarities are undeniable (both are Unreal Engine games in 2.5D), Ex-Patriot
is actually set in a Siberian prison
complex. So it's totally different until you infiltrate the nuclear weapons base.
