Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., announced Time CrisisTM: Razing Storm exclusively for the PlayStation 3. As the latest entry in the series, Time Crisis: Razing Storm delivers the most intuitive point-and-shoot experience ever as players have the option to use the revolutionary PlayStation Move motion controller or Guncon 3 for exceptional precision. Time Crisis: Razing Storm will also introduce a new multiplayer online battle mode, destructible environments, and engaging combat when the game is released throughout North America this fall.
Civil unrest and terrorism plagues the world as an influential and dangerous international military organization decides to declare war against the United States. The government deploys an elite task force to South America for the purpose of capturing the mastermind behind this conflict. The future of the free world depends on these special operatives. Can they stop this warlord before it is too late?
Improving upon the arcade hit, Time Crisis: Razing Storm will feature extensive gameplay modes that combine the series’ traditional shooting action with fully destructible environments. Arcade Mode will provide the perfect coin-op adaptation as players experience the adrenaline rush of defeating a chaotic onslaught of enemies. Much like the arcade experience, a friend can drop in and out at any time during the action. In Story Mode, players are able to freely move about the stages as a member of the elite Delta Team. With an arsenal of weapons at their disposal, players can navigate through different areas and silence anyone or anything that stands in their path. They can also strategically take cover behind objects, as well as lock onto enemies with the new Auto Look function. New to the series, a multiplayer Online Battle Mode will allow up to eight players from around the world to participate in cooperative and competitive fun. For a change in pace offline, Sentry Mode offers up to four players the opportunity to stop prisoners from escaping during a penitentiary riot that unfolds in the beginning of the main story.
Time Crisis: Razing Storm will also include two additional games: Deadstorm Pirates and Time Crisis 4 (Arcade Ver.) Just released in the arcades, Deadstorm Pirates allows players to set sail and step into the shoes of a young swashbuckler. Go forth on single or two player co-op arcade adventures while shooting down hordes of adversaries and extraordinary monsters. Deadstorm Pirates’ intuitive gameplay mechanics will have players manning the helm, firing guns and cannons, as they travel across the open seas in search for Poseidon’s Breath. With two players in tow, teamwork will be key to unleash an ever powerful combination shot. Revisit the dynamic partnership of Giorgio Bruno and Evan Bernard as they prevent a biological weapon from falling into the wrong hands in the arcade version of Time Crisis 4. Based on the 2007 hit, Time Crisis 4 features fast-paced action that allows players to take cover from a barrage of bullets, lead out, and then engage their enemies in either single or split-screen multiplayer modes. An online ranking system will be available in both Deadstorm Pirates and Time Crisis 4, so players can see how their performance stacks up against the world. Both games will also be compatible with the PlayStation Move motion controller and Guncon 3.
