Dead Man’s Hand Shipping for Xbox

"Dead Man’s Hand really capitalizes on the fun and folklore of the Old West with classic elements and storyline," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Atari, Inc. "We are excited to bring this theme to the Xbox for the very first time." In Dead Man’s Hand, players become El Tejon, a master gunslinger on a mission of vengeance after his gang, The Nine, betrays him. Once one of the most feared bandits in the west, El Tejon now comes seeking justice - and revenge. Utilizing the power of the Unreal technology by Epic Games, Human Head has developed an amazing recreation of the American Frontier, ranging from sprawling vistas and rustic canyon towns to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The sophisticated in-game physics engine has hats flying off enemies, bad guys falling off roofs and bullets shattering windows and bottles. A variety of competitive and cooperative play modes lets players compete against friends and other Xbox owners via Xbox Live. Western style options include classics like Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch and favorites with a new twist including Bounty and Posse multiplayer modes. In the Old West, nothing helps fuel revenge like firearms and gambling. In Dead Man’s Hand, players have nine different authentic western-style pistols, shotguns and rifles to choose from as well as dynamite, whiskey bottles, Gatling guns and cannons to blow evil vermin into the afterlife. By shooting with accuracy and skill, players can build up their "Legend" score and unlock special trick shots for each weapon. Between showdowns, players can test their luck with the cards to win bonuses including health, ammo and additional "Legend" points. Dead Man’s Hand for Xbox is rated ’T’ for Teen and is available at retail outlets nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. The PC version will have a suggested retail price of $19.99 and will be available at the end of this month. Additional information about the game can be found at www.deadmanshandgame.com or at www.us.atari.com .
