DEVIL’S THIRD EXPLODES ONTO Wii U ON 28th AUGUST
10th June 2015 – Conceived by legendary designer Tomonobu Itagaki, a wild, larger-than-life military thriller, Devil’s Third, is set to release for Wii U on 28th August, delivering intense single-player and multiplayer third-person action that blends modern military weaponry with brutal melee combat.
At the heart of the single-player campaign is Ivan, a former mercenary let loose from his incarceration to right the wrongs of his past and take down a shadowy terrorist group he once belonged to. With the world’s satellites and electrical weaponry having been wiped out, and warfare once again reduced to close combat between soldiers, Ivan must use a colourful array of weaponry to shoot, hack and bludgeon his way through any foe standing in the way of his attempt at redemption. With fast-paced combat and bone-crunching finishing moves galore, a day in the life of Ivan is anything but ordinary…
The game’s online multiplayer mode, meanwhile, offers up a grim future whereby the terrorists have won, and chaos reigns supreme. As an ordinary citizen, you can join a clan and help reclaim the United States by forming allegiances with other factions, or go all-out as a mercenary and endlessly assault other player’s bases, opting for anarchy over clan diplomacy! But at the heart of the online play is the ability to customise your base alongside other members of your clan, with successful battling resulting in rewards that can be used to improve your defences. With constant assaults from other clans, you’ll have to be on your toes to defend your territory.
Experience Ivan’s bloodthirsty quest to restore his karma, or dive into a world of online clans and non-stop combat, when Devil’s Third releases in Europe on 28th August, at retail and on Nintendo eShop for Wii U.
Please note Devil’s Third will be available only with English voiceover, but with choice of English or French on-screen texts.
