E3 has yet to begin, but surely some of the show's finest news has already arrived. Zeno Clash II, ACE Team's sequel to its strange and wonderful first-person face-puncher, has been confirmed for release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in "early 2013," publisher Atlus announced today. This time around, it's an open-world affair, complete with two-player online campaign co-op.
The sequel returns to the land of Zenozoik, teaming Ghat up with his sister Rimat to save the fallen Father-Mother. Expect new weapons, items, creatures, and RPG elements like improving stats.
"The world of Zenozoik is one of wild dreams and wilder nightmares," ACE Team co-founder Andres Bordeu said in the announcement. "This is part of the reason we are working on Zeno Clash II, to give players the opportunity to explore Zenozoik with a friend via online cooperative multiplayer, turning those moments of wonder and awe into a shared adventure. We will make certain that going back and forth between solo and cooperative play preserves the consistency and impact of the narrative experience, while still allowing friends easily drop in and out of the game's fulfilling exploration and visceral melee combat."
Here's the announcement trailer, and we have three screenshots too.
It's the weekend before Valentine's Day, and that means love is in the air. What better time to pick up some indie games to enjoy with your significant other? Or, alternately, to distract you from your crippling loneliness? The Indie Royale Valentine's Bundle is here to help.
The bundle will run for five days, right up to the big romantic event. If you pay more than the minimum (currently $4.46), you'll get the Music to Play Games By Too album from One Life Left as a bonus. Indie Royale runs these promotions regularly, and has another coming in two weeks, so if none of those indie titles interest you, more will be on the way soon.
Developed by ACE Team and published by Atlus, Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition is an enhanced version of the first-person brawler that hit PC in 2009, including balance tweaks, new content and a two-player co-op mode for online and split-screen play. ...
The game, originally due in March, is billed as the "Ultimate Edition" as it packs a number of changes and improvements over the PC original, including balance tweaks, new weapons and a two-player co-op mode playable both online and via split-screen.
No word yet as to how much the download will run, but we do have a new trailer: Watch the HD video on Shackvideo.
Players of the new 'Zeno Rush' mode will have to defeat various sections of the game in as short a time as possible, with their scores published for all their Live pals to see. The new 'Timehammer' weapon will also set the clock back slightly as it breaks faces.
Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition might have missed its planned Xbox Live Arcade release date of March 30 but Atlus promises to give a new one "as soon as possible."
