'Winback 2: Project Poseidon' (PS2/Xbox) Gets Release Date

by Rainier on March 2, 2006 @ 2:31 a.m. PST

In a world where terror takes many forms, a new weapon threatens to shake the balance of power. Freedom's last hope rests in the hands of three new operatives, who must race against time to recover this doomsday device. The fate of the world hangs by a thread, and a few ticks of the clock means the difference between justice and annihilation.

"When negotiations are no longer an option and the world's most dangerous weapons are compromised, it's time for the Winback assault team to neutralize the threat. Winback 2: Project Poseidon is a pulse-pounding thriller where every moment and every shot counts," said Amos Ip, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for KOEI Corporation. "The original Winback blew people away with its no-nonsense approach to action, and this March the fun, thrills, and action are back."

The follow-up to the smash-hit Winback: Covert Operations, Winback 2: Project Poseidon brings to the series a new "route" system that lets players experience each mission from the perspective of different operatives. There are 30 intense missions, multiple difficulty levels, and new weapons including the highly-anticipated sniper rifle.

The new Winback assault team is comprised of three young, yet combat-proven operatives led by Craig Contrell. Each team member is qualified in six different weapon types and highly-adept at CQB (Close Quarter Battle). They are masters of target identification, engagement and shot placement. In the hands of the player, all of these techniques will be put to the test. The game's unique shooting action is spread across 30 high-risk operations situated in challenging urban environments and conveyances.

Developed by Cavia for KOEI Co., Ltd., Winback 2: Project Poseidon is a 1-4 player game (offline), and is rated "T" (Teen- Mild Language, Violence) by the ESRB.
