Vivendi Universal Games announced today that the sci-fi action shooter Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter is shipping to retail stores nationwide for the PlayStation2 and the Xbox. Mace Griffin will also be available for Windows PC and for Nintendo GameCube in early September.

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 Bounty Hunter features 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, ships to retailers at a suggested price of $49.99 and an ESRB rating of "M" for Mature. Further information about the game can be found at the official Mace Griffin website.
