Stranglehold has gone gold and the Xbox 360 version has a final release date of September 5 (U.S.) and September 14 (Europe). The PC version, which was originally slated to debut along with the 360 version, has now been pushed back to September 18 (U.S.) and September 21 (Europe). While the Playstation 3 version has been pushed back to September 25th (U.S.) and October 2007 (Europe).
Developed by the same team behind Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, Stranglehold is the continuation of John Woo’s cult gangster drama Hard-Boiled. It features the same style of action seen in Woo’s gunplay-heavy film. The cinematic shoot-outs will be further augmented by highly destructible environments and a slow-motion, Max Payne-esque shooting sequence known as Tequila Time.
Stranglehold is rated M for Mature and will retail for $59.99 on the Xbox 360 and PS3, and $49.99 on the PC. An Xbox 360 collector’s edition that includes a second disc with a behind-the-scenes documentary on the game, extended cutscenes, and more will be available for $69.95. The PS3 version will also receive a $69.95 collector’s edition that will include a Blu-ray copy of Hard-Boiled. – Via GameSpot
