First Details on New 50 Cent Game – Yes, It’s Real
I considered all sorts of 52 cent jokes, but they all sucked.
Unfortunately, the rumor has proven to be true as MTV News (where else?) has revealed the first details on the newest game to bear 50’s name. Blood on the Sand, as it’s called, won’t be a direct sequel to the horrendous Bulletproof and isn’t being developed by the same studio.
“Once we get the game out there … I think people will realize right away where our focus for the sequel is,” Vivendi Games producer Aaron Blean told MTV News. “We’ve emphasized the gameplay quality [more] than anything this time around. We can’t wait to show the game around.”
Word is mum on just what the “Blood on the Sand” title refers to or what the game is really about. What we do know is that 50 himself played a big part in developing the story – so you know it’ll be good.
The game is being built on Unreal Engine 3 and will feature a co-op style experience (which MTV refers to as being Gears of War-esque, although Army of Two sounds more accurate) where one player will control 50 Cent, and either the computer or a friend online will take control of the second character.
If you’re actually interested in the rest of the details, I both simultaneously pity you and direct you to MTV.com.
