Dredd vs. Death announced
Vivendi Universal announced today that Dredd Versus Death will be coming to the PS2 next year. The first-person shooter is based on the popular Judge Dredd comic strip that has appeared in 2000AD every week since 1977. The storyline will feature the full cast of characters from the Judge Dredd stories, as players assume the role of Judge Dredd.
"Judge Dredd has always been an obvious choice as a video game license, but no one has ever managed to put across the atmosphere and awesome visual scale of the comics in a game before," said Jason Kingsley, CEO and creative director of Rebellion. "Now a combination of our powerful Asura engine and our love for the character will enable us to put out the Judge Dredd game that gamers and comics fans have been demanding for so many years."
Dredd Versus Death is scheduled for release late in 2003 for the PS2.
