SHANK

Electronic Arts Inc.and award-winning independent development studio Klei Entertainment announced today that the highly anticipated downloadable action game, Shank, will be available for download on August 25 for Xbox LIVE Arcade. Shank blends classic side-scrolling action gameplay and unique stylized 2D art direction with a revenge story penned by award-winning game writer Marianne Krawczyk. The game was recently nominated for multiple "Best of E3" awards, including "Best Action Game" from IGN.com and "Best Downloadable Game" from GameTrailers.com.

"We committed ourselves completely during the development of Shank and it’s been extremely gratifying to see the support we’ve received from the gaming community and press," said Jamie Cheng, CEO of Klei Entertainment. "Watching people play and seeing them smile; it’s fantastic to see them latch onto the things we love most about Shank -- the art, the story and of course the gameplay."

Shank tells a classic story of gangland betrayal through a mature, pulp-fiction lens. Gamers will play as Shank, getting their hands bloody as they uncover the secrets behind Shank’s past and the reasons he is hell-bent on revenge. With a deep and intuitive combat system, players unleash a tremendous number of creative combinations as they take down the waves of enemies standing in their path. Shank also features a special co-operative mission, designed to be played with a friend locally, which tells the backstory to frame the revenge plot. This prequel mission allows players to play as Shank or his partner-in-crime Falcone, with deadly double-team moves and gameplay that encourages teamwork.

Shank will be available for download beginning August 25, 2010 on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points.
