It's payback time! The clock is ticking and its up to gamers to uncover Wolverine's mysterious past in Activision, Inc.'s X2 Wolverine's Revenge. Inspired by "X2: X-Men United," the next adventure in the X-Men motion picture saga, and written by comics legend Larry Hama, X2 Wolverine's Revenge pits Wolverine's razor sharp instincts and super human abilities against familiar foes from Marvel Comics' X-Men comic book series and "X2" including Lady Deathstrike and Magneto. Currently available at North American retail outlets, X2 Wolverine's Revenge carries a suggested retail price of $49.99 for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and the Nintendo GameCube, and $29.99 for the PC and Game Boy Advance versions. All platforms carry a "T" (Teen - Blood, Violence - content suitable for persons ages 13 and older) rating by the ESRB and the Nintendo Game Boy Advance carries an "E" (Everyone - Violence - content suitable for persons ages 6 and older) rating by the ESRB.

"X2 Wolverine's Revenge gives X-Men fans something they've been waiting years for -- an opportunity to delve further into the depths of Wolverine's mysterious past," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "The game's gripping storyline and combination of stealth and action will allow everyone to experience what it means to be Wolverine."

X2 Wolverine's Revenge takes fans back to the Weapon X facility in 1968 when Wolverine's horrific skeletal adamantium bonding experiment had been performed. Players then fast forward to the present and find Wolverine in fellow X-Men comrade Beast's(TM) lab undergoing tests, when Beast and Professor X(TM) tell Wolverine that a viral time bomb has been activated in his body and he has only 48 hours to find an antidote by returning to the one place it all began -- the Weapon X facility.

In his quest to save his life, Wolverine has the added challenge of encountering familiar foes such as Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth(TM), Wendigo(TM), Juggernaut(TM) and Magneto. Armed only with his signature adamantium claws, superior senses, advanced stealth techniques and a variety of martial arts moves, Wolverine also enlists the aid of allies such as Colossus(TM) and Rogue(TM) as he travels across the Canadian wilderness and finds himself in and out of danger in various Department H facilities and boss battles. X2 Wolverine's Revenge also features the voices of Patrick Stewart as Professor X and Mark Hamill as Wolverine.
