Posted on February 14, 2008, Chris Vigilante 8 Remake is Xbox Live Arcade Bound
It should come as no surprise to you that I’m a fan of the vehicular combat genre; Twisted Metal, Rogue Trip – whatever it is, chances are I enjoy it. (Unless it sucks.) Activision today announced something that put a big smile on my face: Vigilante 8: Arcade is coming to Xbox Live Arcade this spring.
There’s no specific release date outside of “spring,” and the only thing we know is that V8: Arcade will be a remake of the original Vigilante 8 and will include an eight player online multiplayer and new content. Maybe they’ll inject some of the content from the game’s sequel?
According to the game’s official website, there will be five new levels, eight vehicles, lots of fancy sounding stuff (“[s]pectacular pyrotechnic, destruction effects, and physics-driven interactive hazards”), and the possibility for camera support, with a plan for future DLC.
