Activision has announced a November release date for Jurassic: The Hunted. If you just asked yourself, "What the hell is Jurassic: The Hunted?" rest assured I'm right there with you.
This is the first I've heard of Jurassic: The Hunted, Activision's budget dinosaur hunting game, outside of a brief mention as "Jurassic Hunter" in Nintendo's holiday lineup listing. Players take on the role of survival and weapons expert Craig Dylan, pulled back in time through the Bermuda Triangle to find himself face-to-face with the deadliest predators the world has ever seen.
"Get ready to be the hunted," said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. "In Jurassic: The Hunted players will experience nonstop, vicious dinosaur attacks coming from all directions — and these are massive beasts that don't go down with a single rifle shot."
The game will feature arena style fights, sieges, survival modes and suitably large boss fights with an adrenalin mechanic that allows the player to target the enemy's weak spots in slow motion.
And that's all we've got. Jurassic: The Hunted comes out November 3 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii, priced to potentially move at $US39.99, with a PlayStation 2 version also on sale for $US10 cheaper.
So, who's up for blindly buying a title not many people have heard of? Anyone?
