by Rainier on March 25, 2002 @ 7:04 p.m. PST

Digital Mayhem, a division of Interplay Entertainment Corp., announced that the highly anticipated upcoming action game Hunter: The Reckoning is scheduled to ship on June 2002 for the Xbox. Hunter: The Reckoning is a fast and furious action game based on the characters and fiction found in the popular role-playing game Hunter: The Reckoning and the immersive World of Darkness created by White Wolf Publishing, Inc. It will be distributed by Virgin Int. in Europe.

"As an original title designed for Xbox, the development team at High Voltage Software has been working closely in conjunction with White Wolf Publishing to make Hunter: The Reckoning the purist gaming experience immersed in the rich fiction of White Wolf's World of Darkness," stated Jim Molitor, President of Digital Mayhem at Interplay Entertainment Corp.

In the world of Hunter, there is evil everywhere, but now a mysterious force has imbued a chosen few humans with not just the knowledge of the evil, but the power to do something about it. Played from a third person perspective, Hunter: The Reckoning drops players in the nightmarish setting of modern day Hunters. Creatures of the dark disguised as everyday mortals plague humankind. Players can assume the role of one of four Hunter characters, in either single player or cooperative 4-player multiplayer mode, each endowed with unique supernatural abilities that become more diverse and powerful as players progress through 20 plus levels conquering evil. Hunter: The Reckoning has already secured outstanding accolades and previews from many key online and print gaming media.
