'Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter' Coming To The US After All

MumboJumbo announced today that the sci-fi action shooter Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter will be shipping to retail stores nationwide for personal computer systems. The product, to be published and distributed by MumboJumbo, is currently in production and expected to hit retail shelves in early December. MumboJumbo signed an agreement with Vivendi Universal Games earlier this month for the PC publishing and distribution rights.

Against a futuristic backdrop of corporate, religious and political intrigue, players will take up the quest of Mace Griffin, once a valued member of an elite police force, The Rangers. Griffin becomes the unsuspecting pawn in a sabotaged incident that kills his comrades and disbands the Rangers, and earns him a 10-year stint behind bars. Emerging from prison hardened and bitter, he becomes a bounty hunter, a vocation that gives him access to classified information and a means to aggressively search for the people who set him up to fall. The character of Mace Griffin is being brought to life by hard rock front man, actor and spoken word artist, Henry Rollins.

"Mace Griffin hails from a long line of movie and videogame tough guys working in the gray area of the law," said Henry Price, Director of Sales for MumboJumbo. "This game moves the concept to a sci-fi storyline full of tense action and mystery-filled intrigue."

Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter utilizes Warthog Studios' TUSK technology, enabling players to transition seamlessly between space combat and FPS action. This tale of revenge and redemption unfolds through 11 massive levels, combining multiple mission objectives in a diverse array of environments. Throughout the game, players will be able to pilot a variety of different ships, from quick alien scout fighters to massive carriers. In first person mode, players will have access to an equally dangerous collection of weapons with both primary and secondary attacks.

Developed by U.K.-based Warthog Studios, Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter, will ship to retailers at a suggested price of $29.99 and carry an ESRB rating of "M" for Mature. The product is available for pre-order directly through the MumboJumbo store, located at http://www.mumbojumbo.com/store.
