Rockstar Games’ The Warriors
After just recently having released classic stealth-horror game Manhunt on the PlayStation 3, Rockstar Games is expanding its PS2 games catalogue on the PS3 even further. According to the PlayStation blog, the game based on The Warriors movie will be hitting the PlayStation Store on May 28. The game will be available for $9.99 (approximately Rs 557).
The Warriors is coming to the PlayStation 3 next week
The game follows the story of the titular gang, called the Warriors. The first part of the game revolves around the gang’s founder – Cleon – and his struggles to maintain their slice of Coney Island. The second part of the game focuses on the gang’s efforts to make a name for themselves in the city. In the third act, Swan takes control of the gang and is trapped in Manhattan during the events of the movie on which the game is based. The game acts as a prequel to the movie and has received critical acclaim for being one of the rare good games based on a movie license.
The last game to be released on the PlayStation 3 by Rockstar was Manhunt. Manhunt joins the likes of the Midnight Club franchise, Bully, all the PlayStation 2 era GTA games and Red Dead Revolver on the Playstation Store.
Manhunt is the first game of the two-game series. It is a psychological horror stealth game. The chief gameplay mechanic revolves around “executions”, which are brutal finishing moves that a player can perform after sneaking up on gang members. The longer players wait for an execution, the more drawn-out and elaborate it will become. Top-level executions are rewarded with higher rankings at the end of levels.
