EDISON, N.J., February 8, 2010 - Majesco Entertainment Company, an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Greg Hastings Paintball 2 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, WiiTM, and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The latest release from the most successful name in the sport-Greg Hastings--Greg Hastings Paintball 2 introduces more than 10 single and multiplayer game modes each staged in all-new, paintball locations based on actual fields around the world. Featuring three new event branches - Tournament Speedball, Recball, and Tournament Woodsball -- the challenge will be incredibly intense as players test their skills on multiple fields where the weather conditions are constantly in flux.
"From day one the goal was to bring FPS fans around the world the most exciting and realistic paintball experience ever created in Greg Hastings Paintball 2," said Greg "Red" Hastings. "Every detail from the latest paintball weapons and gear to the hottest international fields was crafted to place gamers in the most insane paintball battles and match the intensity of a real combat experience."
"With more than five million people playing each year, paintball is easily one of the most popular extreme sports in North America,"said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for Majesco. "Greg Hastings has been able to inject his passion and expertise directly into the game, delivering the most authentic and riveting paintball experience to date."
In Greg Hastings Paintball 2, players take to the field in 12 global paintball locations, each containing three to six different fields. Seven single-player game modes challenge the most experienced "ballers" to hone their skills and then test them against up to 19 others in seven different multiplayer game types.
Whether playing alone or against others, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 ups the ante with game-changing weather conditions and field hazards including rain, wind and fog. While the difficulty level may have increased, so have the tools at the players disposal as the game features an improved map editor along with the hottest new gear and weapons. When things are at their bleakest, players can even use the all-new cheat meter that lets them avoid elimination by successfully wiping away paint splatter before theyre caught.
Serious "ballers" can even become general manager of their own 10-player team composed of more than 100 professional and amateur paintball players. Gamers can trade players, issue commands, and use their earnings from the field to build each players individual stats, so the overall team is that much more competitive. The better the team assembled, the more tournaments a player stands to win, providing him with added cash to buy new gear, players and skill upgrades.
Developed by Super X Studios in collaboration with Greg Hastings himself, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is expected to release this September. Details on downloadable content will be announced at a later date. To find out more, please register at the official site www.gregredhastings.com.
