Devil’s Third will launch for Wii U on August 28 in Europe, Nintendo announced. The game was dated yesterday for August 4 in Japan.
The third-person action game, which offers both single-player and multiplayer modes, blends modern military weaponry with “brutal” melee combat.
Get some new details below.
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 colorful 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 customize your base alongside other members of your clan, with successful battling resulting in rewards that can be used to improve your defenses. With constant assaults from other clans, you’ll have to be on your toes to defend your territory.
We expect a North American release date will be announced later this morning.
