TimeSplitters 2 Announced

Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced that TimeSplitters 2 is currently in development for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and the Nintendo GameCube™ in addition to the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. TimeSplitters 2 is the sequel to the hugely successful and critically-acclaimed TimeSplitters, which was released to coincide with the US and European launches of PlayStation 2. Featuring members of the original GoldenEye development team, the game is under development by Free Radical Design and is set for release in Fall 2002. “We are extremely excited to announce that TimeSplitters 2 will be released on all the next generation gaming consoles,” said Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos Interactive. “Xbox and GameCube owners will welcome the opportunity to experience the stunning graphics and amazing gameplay that TimeSplitters 2 has to offer. “At Free Radical, we are passionate about console gaming," said David Doak, Managing Director of Free-Radical Design. “It’s only natural that TimeSplitters 2 will be appearing on all three next generation consoles.” TimeSplitters 2 will improve on many of the features that made the original so awesome and fun to play. The game offers fully developed single player and co-operative story modes, featuring a complex narrative with multiple objective-based episodes and superbly animated cut-scenes.The game engine has been extensively upgraded to accommodate bigger, higher detailed backgrounds and dizzying graphical special effects, while still providing the distinctively smooth fast-paced action of the original. TimeSplitters 2 offers a completely rewritten animation system incorporating inverse kinematics bringing even more lifelike and dynamic movement to a new collection of stylized renegade characters. TimeSplitters 2 will retain the unique MapMaker in an enhanced form, which opens up even more potential for the hardcore player to completely customize game scenarios. The multiplayer mayhem of the original will be back, and TimeSplitters 2 further extends the possibilities of allowing multiple consoles to be linked together. Stop by the game profile area for TimeSplitters 2 screens, ninety eight to be exact. The first six are taken from the Xbox, the rest are from other consoles but worthy of a look to get a feel for the game.
