Activision, best known for Pet Luv Spa & Resort Tycoon, announced today that the “next-gen” (current-gen) continuation of the Soldier of Fortune series will be available in stores this November on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Click here to check out a fresh batch of screenshots.
Soldier of Fortune: Payback will include over thirty different guns and projectile explosives, and will introduce “an enemy damage system that may be shocking to even experienced FPS players.” We were mainly shocked by the exceedingly large variety of headwear (black masks, turbans, berets, helmets...) crammed into the trailer, but we look forward to playing the game, which appears to be an experience akin to shooting up a cocktail of adrenaline, testosterone, steroids, and steak juice.
Where story is concerned, Activision keeps it simple (and topical!):
“The storyline reflects today’s trend of 'outsourcing' wars. When a routine escort mission goes horribly wrong, freelance mercenary Thomas Mason finds himself battling an insidious enemy that knows no boundaries. Traditional armies can not handle these extremists – only underground guns for hire can fight a war this dirty and get results.”
Can't wait until next month? Settle that itchy trigger finger by absorbing the trailer below.
