backstab_v2

This week is one huge week in the gaming and technology world, and we’re greasing our gears in anticipation for it. Today we’ve announced we’re teaming up with Sony Ericsson to release a brand new game exclusively for the Xperia PLAY.

The game, titled BackStab is set on an 18th century Caribbean island and weaves an epic tale of revenge. Hero Henry Blake has been falsely accused of treason and will go to all means to seek vengeance on his British jailers. With a game play mixing action and adventure, BackStab incorporates an open 3D environment for free roaming, dynamic combat and counter-attacks.

The game is due for release in Q2 2011 and will be exclusive on the Xperia PLAY for 1-month. Check the screenshots below to whet your appetites.

    [...] Sony’s Playstation brand is undeniably strong and they’ve got a laundry list of gaming assets and partnerships they can leverage to turn their not-yet-released Android gaming phone – the Xperia Play – into a huge success.

The device will come prepackaged with a boat load of games optimized for the XPERIA’s controls and, for a 1-month period, you’ll only be able to get “Backstab” – a Gameloft game that looks pretty sweet – on the XPERIA Play. I find the name “Backstab” to be pretty hilarious. It would sound more typical as “Backstabber” or “Backstabbers” or but for some reason the singular version just sounds comical to me… but for some reason I also like it. Here is what GameLoft had to say about the upcoming exclusive release: The game, titled BackStab is set on an 18th century Caribbean island and weaves an epic tale of revenge. Hero Henry Blake has been falsely accused of treason and will go to all means to seek vengeance on his British jailers. With a game play mixing action and adventure, BackStab incorporates an open 3D environment for free roaming, dynamic combat and counter-attacks. Sounds like a decent RPG/Action game to me! Here are a few more screenshots to hold you over. [Via Gameloft] [...]
