LucasArts Announces Mercenaries
LucasArts has officially announced Mercenaries, a third-person action shooter in development for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox and due out this fall. The title is set in the “near-future,” where a reunification of North and South Korea is being jeopardized by a North Korean military coup. A bounty is subsequently put out on North Korean military members, and players, in the role of a mercenary operating for a company called Executive Operations, are recruited to go in and get the targets. Vehicles and “massive” environments will be included, as will a 52-piece card deck that will be used to identify the “most-wanted” targets.
