Our friends over at Homelan dug up some info from the newest print issue of Game Informer magazine which reveals and gives the first details for Dead To Rights II. While the PC version of Dead To Rights is expected later this year, this new article already sports a number of screenshots from the sequel, details about the new graphics engine, gameplay improvements (including better gunplay, melee combat with swords and improved hand-to-hand combat). Dead To Rights II will feature new gameplay modes like Arcade mode (run through the game and collect points for special moves) and Challenge mode (play special levels to accomplish a specific goal or achievement). The game will be released for the PS2/Xbox in fall 2004, no GameCube or PC version has been announced yet.
As you may have noticed ( judging from the many emails! :) the site was down for part of the day. This was due to performing maintenance on the Worthplaying web box as well as one of the fileservers. Weekend is usually slower in news & updates so we took the time to install some new (and much faster) hardware as well as adding more hd space to one of the file servers. Upgrades never go as smooth as one would like so it all took a bit longer than we had hoped for. Either way, things should run a lot faster so it was worth the sweat. Njoy!
