UBISOFT ANNOUNCES WHEELMAN DEMO AVAILABLE NOW ON XBOX LIVE
Action-Packed Demo Showcases Wheelman's Game Design Mechanics Including Cinematic Super Moves and Vehicular Combat
Today Ubisoft and Midway Newcastle announce that an official Wheelman demo is available now exclusively on the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network at http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/w/wheelman/. The Wheelman demo will be available for download on the PlayStation®Network on March 12.
Combining spectacular Hollywood-style stunts with a gripping storyline, Wheelman provides an adrenaline-fueled, cinematic thrill ride. Vin Diesel stars as an undercover agent and highly skilled driver who must infiltrate the Barcelona underworld to gather intelligence surrounding a covert heist. Posing as a driver-for-hire, he ends up caught in a crossfire of corruption and chaos while trying to stay one step ahead of local law enforcement and rival gangs.
The Wheelman demo features a custom-made mission introducing the player to the special moves that only a master Wheelman can pull off. Spin into a Cyclone while precision shooting at enemies or leap from vehicle to vehicle at breathtaking speeds to AirJack your enemy's car. Once the player has completed the custom-made mission they will unlock two side missions: 'Made to Order' and 'Street Showdown.' Each of these side missions will be playable three times before the demo finishes. While the finished game will allow you to freely roam a virtual version of Barcelona – the cultural capital of Europe – in an open-world environment, this demo has been created to highlight only a small section of the actual game world.
Wheelman is scheduled for a March 24, 2009 ship date in North America and a March 27, 2009, street date in Europe for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PC.
