As bad as the new Rambo video game looks, Reef Entertainment has certainly been proactive in promoting it. The publisher has released numerous trailers for the game, including new gameplay clips showing that it is, in fact, an on-rails shooter with quicktime events thrown in for the “stealth” moments.
Today Reef announced that the official release date for Rambo: The Video Game will be February 21 in Europe. The game will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on that date. A subsequent release for “North America & Canada” (that’s seriously how the announcement reads) will be coming sometime during the first quarter of 2014, though the game will only be on PlayStation 3 and PC in those territories.
In addition to the release date, Reef has revealed that the game’s developer is already working on a DLC expansion for the title. As the core game is set to recount the events of First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, and Rambo III, this content will presumably have something to do with the 2008 Rambo movie. That, or zombies.
Reef today also revealed that they will be using every bit of the Rambo license that they can. The video game will use voice tracks from the Rambo movies, as well as “selected music” from the trilogy. As a preview of what players might hear during the game, here is the “cinematic teaser” for the game. That is to say, 50 seconds of clips from Rambo movies:
