The battle of the century is on when
Matt Hazard takes on 2D soldiers, deadly zombies, space marines, JRPG sword
handlers and a number of classic enemies in Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard™
from D3Publisher (D3P). Eat Lead is a shooter with a sense of humor and is now
available for the Xbox 360  video game and entertainment system from
Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system for the suggested
retail price of $49.95.

Written by 2008 Writers Guild Award
winner Dave Ellis, Eat Lead stars classic 80’s videogame action hero Matt
Hazard, voiced by Will Arnett (“30 Rock” and “Arrested Development”). Matt gets
his chance to prove to all that he is the king of shooters when new owner of
mega game publisher Marathon Megasoft, Wallace “Wally” Wellesley, voiced by Neil
Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother” and “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”),
gives Matt his comeback role.

In Eat Lead everything stops being a
game and becomes reality when it is clear that Wally is using the new game to
bring about Matt’s death once and for all. With only the mysterious “QA” to help
him, Matt must fight against a horde of enemies to keep his game from being over
forever.

“Eat Lead is unlike any other
shooter gamers have experienced,” said Pete Andrew, vice president of product
development, North America, D3Publisher. “With a unique premise and engaging
storyline, gamers will be engrossed in a videogame that will keep them
reminiscing and laughing for a long time.”

Eat Lead is the first retail product
to use the new, Vicious Engine 2 (Ve2), which is licensed for use for other
games. Ve2 boasts a number of new and improved features, including an updated
lighting engine and modern pixel shader technology.

Developed by Vicious Cycle, Eat Lead
is currently rated “T” (Teen – Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Violence) by
