Vivendi Universal Games announced today that Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward for the PS2 has shipped to retail. This fast-paced hack n' slash game marks the introduction of the gothic fantasy world of Hunter: The Reckoning based on White Wolf's pen and paper RPG, to the platform. With one of five playable Hunters, gamers will battle hordes of monsters with an arsenal of deadly weapons. High Voltage Software has developed several features that provide Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward a unique game-play experience from previous games from the franchise, including a Hub based portal system and two-player cooperative mode.

"The rich content of the Hunter: The Reckoning franchise offers gamers an immersive experience into one of White Wolf's most popular fantasy worlds," said Philip O'Neil Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Infusing intense action, strong character development and an engaging storyline, Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward draws gamers one step deeper into this dark fantasy world.

In the game, players return to the sleepy town of Ashcroft, where two years ago a supernatural evil was destroyed by four Hunters. In the last two years the town has put the past behind them...or so they thought. The Intrepid residences of this ill-fated town are struck with a cult that has formed underground and now two years later events reminiscent of the past have begun to occur. After receiving a distress call from a mysterious new Hunter, the four original Hunters realize they must return to the town. Evil has again resurfaced and the Hunters are Ashcroft's only hope of deliverance.

Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward is available on PlayStation(r)2 for a suggested retail price of $49.99 with an ESRB "Mature" rating. For more information, log on to the official website.
