Ok, I know what you're thinking. Just another shooter, right? Not exactly. Back when I got some hands on time with Bodycount, I was actually fairly impressed with how much fun it can be to completely obliterate practically everything but the ground beneath you in this game. Environments tear to shreds and crumble with impressive physics.

Codemasters has officially announced a release date for this destructive shooting experience. You can expect the game to be on North American shelves on August 30th of this year.

Los Angeles – June 29, 2011 – Bodycount™, the shooter that blasts intense arcade firefights from both barrels, will ship to stores across North America on August 30th, Codemasters© announced today. To accompany the news, Codemasters has also revealed the game’s final pack designs. The most recent trailer showcasing Bodycount’s turbo-charged gunplay is now playing at http://www.youtube.com/bodycountgame.

Bodycount puts the fun back into the gun with a focus on delivering outrageous and stylish gunfights. Gamers battle class-based enemies who work together to chase the player down as they hunt the mysterious “Target,” a relentlessly evil enemy who manipulate world events under the cover of civil warzones. From the chaotic battlefields of Africa to the dangerous city streets of Asia and monolithic Target bases which the player must infiltrate, Bodycount’s gameplay comes alive as players shred their way through destructible cover and carve a unique wave of destruction through each level.

Equipped with a mouth-watering arsenal of weapons, grenades, mines and airstrikes, players rip through cover and enemies as they leave no man standing. By performing skill kills, chaining kills and collecting intel dropped by downed enemies, players can unlock a series of upgrades and abilities, including an adrenaline shot, explosive bullets and radar. Every bullet and every body counts, with replayability extended by the scoring of a player’s skill in each level which can be compared against online leaderboards in the game’s Bodycount Mode.

Bodycount’s high-octane campaign is complimented by online co-operative and competitive modes where destructible killzones create new options for defence and attack.

Bodycount will make you fall in love with firepower when it launches for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Sign up for the latest news, screens and videos www.facebook.com/bodycountgame and www.twitter.com/bodycountgame.
