Lionsgate, in partnership with independent video game publisher Big Star Games, has announced the upcoming release of the action-packed shooter Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the cult-favorite film from Lionsgate’s vast film and television library, Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days combines all the drama and tension of the movie with a unique “Time Back” gameplay mechanic. The game is expected to launch worldwide later this year, first on Steam (PC), followed by an Xbox One version.
Adding a new level of strategy to the action-shooter genre, players will be able to rewind time to control each and every tactical move and splattering shot for all members of the team. Every time the clock is turned back the outcome of the heist hangs in the balance as each Reservoir Dog plays their role in finishing the job and completing the bloody escape.
The game is set to include a number of features, including:
Unique time-bending action: Employ a highly addictive strategic approach in tension-filled robberies and shootouts, controlling each character for overlapping bursts of time;
Six Infamous Movie Characters: Control Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, and Mr. White in a series of heists;
Heists and surprises based on the film: Experience adrenaline-filled heists with the Reservoir Dogs crew.
Liam Patton, CEO of Big Star Games, spoke about the upcoming release, saying:
“As huge fans of Reservoir Dogs, we’re very focused on creating a highly addictive experience that stays true to the tense, dramatic vibe of this unforgettable movie. By taking control of different characters for overlapping bursts of time, players must utilize the strengths of each squad member to carry out the game’s missions, with every move and shot creating a butterfly effect on the overall outcome.”
So far, a release date for Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days has yet to be announced.
