News: Update on Rambo: The Video Game


Reef Entertainment has given an update on it’s upcoming game, Rambo: The Video Game.

First, a reminder on what we already knew: Rambo: The Video Game will be based on the first three Rambo movies and will feature original audio from the movies. So, we pretty much know what the story is about: Rambo kicking ass.

Now, today Reef released some new info on the gameplay of Rambo: The Video Game:

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.”

I like the Rambo movies, but I’ve personally always been more of a Rocky fan, as far as Stallone movies go. However, I think Rambo will translate PERFECTLY into the gaming medium. It was a genius idea to take these stories and turn them into a shooter game. All of the gameplay features detailed make it look like they’re taking things in a good direction. I’m particularly looking forward to the stealth mode. That stealth mud scene was one of the most memorable moments of the series, for me, at least. I’ll be looking forward to checking this one out later this year!
