SpyHunter 2 Has Gone Out the Door

Midway Games Inc. a leading software industry publisher and developer, announced today that SpyHunter 2, the high-speed, mission-based, action/combat racing game today has shipped for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft(R). Midway Games Inc. also announced today that the first all-new remake of its popular 1980’s action-racing game, SpyHunter(R) has sold through more than 1.6 million units worldwide across all platforms since its late-September 2001 launch and continues to sell well as part of SCEA’s "Greatest Hits" and Microsoft’s "Platinum Hits" programs. "The unique world of SpyHunter expands in SpyHunter 2, with an all-new devastatingly powerful and customizable G-8155 interceptor with brand-new vehicle transformations and the addition of a mysterious female agent," said Mark Beaumont, senior vice president - entertainment, Midway. "We are excited that the gaming community fully embraced the last edition of SpyHunter and we are confident the latest iteration, SpyHunter 2, will be equally well received." SpyHunter 2 is a powerful progression in the mission to save the world from the sinister grip of the global criminal terrorist group, Nostra. SpyHunter 2 features an all-new, extremely powerful and customizable G-8155 Interceptor with new vehicle transformations such as an off-road 4-wheel drive vehicle and a snow ski. In addition, the gameplay includes upgradable offensive and defensive weaponry, as players fend off enemy vehicles throughout massive levels set across enormous regions. A new mysterious, sexy female agent has also been added to the mix to complement the intensity of SpyHunter 2’s fast-paced action. SpyHunter 2 introduces an all-new terrorist threat and it is up to Alec Sects to command the world’s most sophisticated super spy vehicle to save the world. Exclusive weaponry such as an auto-tracking turret and an indestructible armored shield are combined with landmines and oil slicks for an impressive defense that will immerse gamers in 16 action-packed levels set across four gigantic regions. Each region is interactive and dynamic, allowing players to choose their own paths and fight against giant end-of-mission bosses, including eight all-new Nostra enemies. The excitement also continues with the latest version of the Interceptor’s online computer, Leonie 2.0, designed to aid in mission-critical tactics and information. In addition to incredible and continuing sales of the SpyHunter videogame released in fall 2001 and the highly anticipated release of SpyHunter 2, Universal Pictures has obtained an option to the rights to develop the SpyHunter(R) videogame franchise into a major live action motion picture. Universal has signed The Rock to portray Alec Sects, commander of the world’s most sophisticated spy vehicle, the G-8155 Interceptor, and are eyeing to begin production in 2004 with a summer 2005 release.
