by Rainier on April 30, 2003 @ 11:07 p.m. PDT

Earlier today we announced that Stake is shipping to stores and should be available as early as May 5th. Stake is the ultimate third person, multi-player 3-D arena fighting game exclusively for the Xbox. It boasts a deep action combat experience, intriguing characters and superior graphics. This game represents the essential elements of a fighting game but goes beyond that with multiple power-up weapons, lots of collectable items, insane combo attacks, special tricks, secret characters, inspiring graphics, 3-D isometric camera views, exciting locations and multiple multi-player modes. Check out the new batch of screens!

The concept of the game is to compete with each other and only the craziest and dangerous of competitors reap the cash reward every two years. Now it's Stake time again and everyone is ready for this year's match-up for which Stake competitors will receive riches, fame and command the respect of all who dare defeat them. Three modes of play include Death Match, Team Death Match and Castle Mode.

Up to four players can compete simultaneously in split-screen combat and the anime-designed characters really bring a unique style to Stake. Players attack the enemy with interactive items including grenades, ice, gasses, hot oil, flaming statues, rocks, and more.
