RTX Red Rock announced
LucasArts announced one of their E3 title's today, revealing RTX Red Rock for the Playstation 2. The game is a third-person action adventure title and places players 100 years into the future when an alien force attacked Red Rock, the first of mankind's colonies on Mars. Featuring 10 single-player levels and two-player multiplayer modes, players control EZ Wheeler a character that frequently engages in tactical combat. Wheeler's right arm can be altered to function as a grappling hook, a taser, a grenade launcher, and etc. Also, his synthetic left eye, meanwhile, is sensitive to special wavelengths and can be used to target hidden aliens, recognize dangerous traps, uncover power-ups, and more.
"RTX Red Rock follows in the tradition of classic award-winning original games from LucasArts such as Grim Fandango, The Dig, and Full Throttle," says Tom Byron, director of product marketing for LucasArts. "We know players will quickly welcome E.Z. Wheeler into the LucasArts family of heroes, as this game perfectly blends them with a rich, compelling story and gripping game play."
