Announces Greg Hastings Paintball 2 for Xbox 360, Wii and PS3
The #1 Name in Paintball Brings
the Most Realistic Paintball Experience Ever to All Three Next Gen Consoles
Majesco Entertainment Company today
announced Greg Hastings Paintball 2 for the Xbox 360, Wii, and PlayStation 3.
The latest release from the most successful name in the sport-Greg
Hastings–Greg Hastings Paintball 2 introduces more than 10 single and
multiplayer game modes each staged in all-new, paintball locations based on
actual fields around the world. Featuring three new event branches – Tournament
Speedball, Recball, and Tournament Woodsball — the challenge will be incredibly
intense as players test their skills on multiple fields where the weather
conditions are constantly in flux.
"From day one the goal was to bring
FPS fans around the world the most exciting and realistic paintball experience
ever created in Greg Hastings Paintball 2," said Greg "Red" Hastings. "Every
detail from the latest paintball weapons and gear to the hottest international
fields was crafted to place gamers in the most insane paintball battles and
match the intensity of a real combat experience."
"With more than five million people
playing each year, paintball is easily one of the most popular extreme sports in
North America," said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for
Majesco. "Greg Hastings has been able to inject his passion and expertise
directly into the game, delivering the most authentic and riveting paintball
experience to date."
In Greg Hastings Paintball 2,
players take to the field in 12 global paintball locations, each containing
three to six different fields. Seven single-player game modes challenge the most
experienced "ballers" to hone their skills and then test them against up to 19
others in seven different multiplayer game types.
Whether playing alone or against
others, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 ups the ante with game-changing weather
conditions and field hazards including rain, wind and fog. While the difficulty
level may have increased, so have the tools at the players’ disposal as the game
features an improved map editor along with the hottest new gear and weapons.
When things are at their bleakest, players can even use the all-new cheat meter
that lets them avoid elimination by successfully wiping away paint splatter
before they’re caught.
Serious "ballers" can even become
general manager of their own 10-player team composed of more than 100
professional and amateur paintball players. Gamers can trade players, issue
commands, and use their earnings from the field to build each player’s
individual stats, so the overall team is that much more competitive. The better
the team assembled, the more tournaments a player stands to win, providing him
with added cash to buy new gear, players and skill upgrades.
Developed by Super X Studios in
collaboration with Greg Hastings himself, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is expected
to release this September. Details on downloadable content will be announced at
a later date. To find out more, please register at the official site
