Backyard Wrestling Coming this Summer

BACKYARD WRESTLING Developer: Paradox Format: PS2/XBOX Release Date: Summer 2003 PEGI Rating: tbc SRP: tbc Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, announces Backyard Wrestling for PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Backyard Wrestling is being developed by Paradox and will be released this summer. Backyard Wrestling places you in the role of an aspiring wrestler. You must be prepared to endure extreme amounts of pain and take incredible risks in order to move one step closer to the BYW title and ultimately be crowned ’The King of Hardcore’. But the road to glory is long and dangerous. Dozens of weapons including thumbtacks, barbed wire, light bulbs, baseball bats, tables, trash cans, and stop signs are at your disposal to help re-arrange the faces of new challengers. And did we mention the fire? Enter the fully interactive and destructible environments to the awesome in-game soundtrack and prepare for battle. Learn to master ultra-violent moves including grappling, throws, and hand-to-hand combat as you brutalize your opponents into submission. Real life BYW characters such as Josh Prohibition, MDogg20 and Sabu head up some of the competition. See them bleed with the innovative damage model system allowing characters to get cuts, bruises and gashes all over their bodies depending on the moves they’ve been doing, and more painfully what moves have been done to them! The controversial and shocking US phenomenon of Backyard Wrestling has been around almost as long as professional wrestling. It was unorganised, undocumented fun but has now evolved into something much more. With the popularity of ’hardcore’ or ’deathmatch’ style wrestling on TV, people were no longer satisfied with just being spectators and took playful wrestling with their friends to the next level. Where a bunch of guys would once play fight in their yards, they now perform outrageous stunts. Backyard wrestlers think nothing of throwing opponents off 25ft high rooftops onto flaming tables and inflicting super violent acts with baseball bats wrapped in barbed wire. The game is based on the best-selling Backyard Wrestling video series that has become a worldwide phenomenon selling millions of copies of VHS tapes and DVDs in addition to successful pay per view events. Features: Over 20 unlockable playable characters based on real life Backyard wrestlers, each with their own fighting styles and signature moves 7 destructible, fully 3D levels including a gentleman’s club, a mansion, a slaughterhouse, a truck-stop and of course a backyard! Each level provides the player with a variety of fighting areas including high levels for those breath taking high risk manoeuvres! Numerous playing modes including single player matches, versus mode, tournament mode, 6 unlockable bonus modes and a video clip mode featuring real footage from the Backyard Wrestling videos and DVD’s Dozens of weapons including barbed wire, light bulbs, baseball bats, tables, trash cans, and stop signs are at your disposal A vast range of devastating moves including slams, throws, combos, ledge throws, aerial manoeuvres, running attacks, ground attacks, reversal moves and of course weapon attacks Innovative damage body system allows characters to get cuts, bruises and gashes all over their bodies depending on the moves they’ve been doing. But beware, the more high risk the move the more damage you receive yourself! No more button-mashing combos! Moves are based on timing and skill and every attack, throw or slam can be reversed with carefully executed counter moves Special ’stun’ meter provides players with extra humiliation moves. The more you stun your opponent with your cool moves the higher your stun rating will go allowing you to humiliate your opponent An awesome soundtrack including an exciting partnership with multi-platinum recording artists the Insane Clown Posse (ICP) and Psychopathic Records
