The latest entry in Polish development outfit Teyon Games' budget on-rails shooter series Heavy Fire is set to launch on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC next week on January 29.
Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear sends soldiers after a captured spy who holds the plans to a secret Iranian nuclear weapons facility. The sequel to Heavy Fire: Afghanistan is both playable alone and with up to three others via couch co-op, the latter a solid choice if you're the type who prefers the military authenticity that only a claustrophobic foxhole-slash-crowded-couch can provide.
