They did it! They drew first blood!
Did that put you in the mood? You were born a soldier! You’re a killing machine! This is what you’ve been waiting for! A Rambo game! A Rambo game that’s ALMOST GOING TO BE AS GOOD AS RAMBO: LAST BLOOD! BLOOD! RAMBLOOD!
Seriously though, about thirty years after First Blood first bled on the movie scene Teyon Software & Entertainment (developer of Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D) and publisher Reef Entertainment have teamed up to announce a Rambo first person shooter based on First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Pt. II, and Rambo III.
This might be a bit late to the party. Teyon’s promising a whole lot of things though, from cover based shooting, to destructible terrain, stealth kills, knife-play, and physics. The sombre and brooding tone of the original First Blood might be a little difficult to capture in a first person shooter, but they’re going for it as evidenced by the screenshot above that rather obviously depicts Hope, Washington.
Now, we all know movie licenses are pretty rough trade in the video game industry, but some of them are just so horrible they’re good. I’m not suggesting that Rambo, the first person shooter is doomed to fail, but it could be pretty spectacular. Here’s hoping we get some gameplay footage soon. It’s set to come out for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
