Electronic Arts Inc., announced today that the upcoming downloadable action-RPG, DeathSpank, will be released on July 13th for PlayStation Network and July 14th for Xbox LIVE Arcade. Gain quests from a colorful cast of characters, and vanquish evil with fast and furious action as DeathSpank scours the world for a mystical artifact.
Developed under the direction of The Secret of Monkey Island creator and industry icon Ron Gilbert, DeathSpank combines Gilbertâ€™s unique humor and wit with fast, addictive action-RPG gameplay, making for a hilarious and massive epic quest for justice.
The game puts players in the mighty boots of DeathSpank, the â€œDispenser of Justiceâ€, â€œVanquisher of Evilâ€ and â€œHero to the Downtroddenâ€. His life-long destiny is to embark on an epic journey in search of a mysterious artifact known only as, â€œThe Artifactâ€.
DeathSpank will feature local co-op gameplay, allowing friends to team up on the same console as both DeathSpank and his trusty sidekick, Sparkles the Wizard. Sparklesâ€™ abilities are magical, serving as the perfect complement DeathSpankâ€™s weapons-based attacks as the duo battle against the intolerant minions of injustice.
Along the way DeathSpank and Sparkles will rescue some orphans, defeat a local tyrant, help an aging adventurer, and dive headlong into an even deeper mystery in an epic action-RPG that includes collecting loot, solving crazy puzzles, witty dialogue, collecting loot, a ton of weapons, fun and accessible action, and of course, collecting loot.
DeathSpank will be available for download beginning July 13, 2010 on the PlayStation Network for $14.99, and July 14, 2010 on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points.
