E3 2002: Wolverine's Revenge details
Activision has announced X-Men: Wolverine's Revenge for the Playstation 2. The third-person action-adventure game will journey players through the Marvel universe and showcase the powers of Wolverine. X-Men: Wolverine's Revenge is expected to be released in the spring of 2002.
X-Men: Wolverine's Revenge allows players to assume the role of Wolverine, as he must find an antidote to the viral time bomb that's just been discovered in his system. Wolverine returns to the Department H facility with only 48 hours to live and uncovers the terrible secrets behind the Weapon X laboratory and the experiments that originally transformed him.
Wolverine's unique abilities include deadly claws to defeat the greatest of foes, animal-like super senses to assist in tracking enemies, an enhanced mutant healing factor and unbreakable bones to withstand devastating amounts of punishment, and superior strength and reflexes for an added edge in combat.
"After more than 300 comic books, an animated series and most recently a blockbuster feature film featuring the X-Men, Wolverine is the one character that grips the public's attention more than any of the other X-Men," states Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "X-Men: Wolverine's Revenge allows you to play as Wolverine, explore the enigmatic hero's past and carve up a host of bad guys along the way."
