For fans of Condemned: Criminal Origins who have been eagerly anticipating the release of Condemned 2: Bloodshot, our wait is nearly over. Today, SEGA announced that Bloodshot has shipped and this news has indeed made me one very happy lady. Normally I do not pre-order games, but I absolutely had to with this one considering how much I loved the chills and thrills the first one gave me and I cannot wait for the psychological horror promised with this installment. Hopefully there will be no mannequins this time around though – eek.

Xbox 360 owners will be able to get the first crack at this first-person action thriller, while PS3 owners will have their chance on March 18 – not sure why there is a delay, but it is not that much of one at least.

Just in case you have been living in a cellar here is the storyline for the game: Condemned 2: Bloodshot follows Ethan Thomas, and his inner demons, in a string of gruesome murders where players must use their deductive skills and brute force to track down sadistic serial killers. The game features all-new fighting mechanics and high-tech forensics tools, giving players the resources they need to unravel the mysteries and cope with every disturbing event. Developed by Monolith Productions, creators of the original Condemned game, Condemned 2: Bloodshot also introduces a variety of online multiplayer modes, delivering the most brutal hand-to-hand combat experience the first-person genre has ever seen.

This sounds like it will be drenched in awesome-sauce. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my excitement will not be in vain and that it will be just as fun as Criminal Origins. You can read the full press release after the jump.

I might just move my Xbox to the big screen for this one. These horror games tend to not have the same scary effect when playing on a 20 inch SDTV with mono sound :P .

@Zom: Sorry. The first one didn’t make it to the PC so I doubt the sequel will.
