Bullet time: first screens from Acclaim's 100 Bullets
27th Jan 2004 | 17:24
Acclaim's 100 Bullets is set to hit the Xbox and PS2 later this year; based on the comic book of the same name from Brian Azzurello, the story revolves around a fellow named Agent Graves.
Quite who Graves is an "Agent" for is none too clear; he spends the bulk of his time tracking luckless individuals and offering them a chance for revenge on someone who's done them a wrong in the shape of an attaché case providing them with the all means necessary to stitch up said wrong-doer.
Azzurello has also put together the game's script, which should make for an authentic comicbook-like experience. You play through the game as two characters, Cole Burns and Snow Falls, who reportedly "intertwine good, bad, and revenge". We're also promised blockbuster movie style action, with a whole of weapons to play with, fully interactive scenery and the ability to take hostages, should you fancy it.
All of which sounds enjoyably twisted. 100 Bullets is set to appear in Autumn 2004; we'll have more on the title as we get it.
