'Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb' (PS2) Has Gone Gold!

by Rainier on June 13, 2003 @ 5:35 p.m. PDT | Filed under News

LucasArts just let us know that Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb for PS2 has Gone Gold and will be in stores June 26th! While you're anxiously awaiting your PS2 retail copies, please visit the official site to see what's new! Indy's latest adventure plays out in dramatic fashion thanks to new gameplay features such as brawling combat. This time, in addition to using his trademark whip and pistol, Indy can engage in fierce hand-to-hand combat against foes, many of whom are well-versed in martial arts. Improvised weapons such as shovels, chairs and table legs also can be used to fend off adversaries. The result is a more immersive and more Indy-like gameplay experience, set amidst spine-tingling movie-like action sequences, such as a rickshaw chase in Hong Kong and a spectacular battle atop moving gondolas in the South China Sea area.
