Fresh details have cropped up in regards to the forthcoming action sequel, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand.
Speaking to MTV News, Vivendi Games Producer Aaron Blean implied that the hip-hop star’s latest videogame outing would ultimately prove to be a far more competent affair than its predecessor, 50 Cent: Bulletproof.
"Once we get the game out there... I think people will realise right away where our focus for the sequel is,” said Blean. "We've emphasised the gameplay quality [more] than anything this time around. We can't wait to show the game around."
According to reports, the game will be powered utilizing Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 and will include cooperative-based gameplay. Players will be able to bring along a member of G Unit – human or AI controlled – in an effort to aid 50 Cent as he wages war against legions of International gangsters.
Each character will sport their own unique set of combat abilities, with Tony Yayo, Whoo Kid and Lloyd Banks all confirmed to appear in the sequel.
Blean stated that the game takes much of its influence from the movies Three Kings and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, noting that 50 Cent himself has played a significant role in its creation.
Fans of the hip-hop star can also look forward to the inclusion of exclusive tracks from the man himself, with Blean adding, "50 is going to create exclusive tracks for the game that you can only listen to in the game.”
50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is currently in development for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a tentative release date of fall 2008.
