Recently, Activision, Inc. launched X2 WOLVERINE'S REVENGE for all five game platforms simultaneously. Inspired by the new feature film, X2: X-MEN UNITED and the Marvel comic, the new game has Wolverine venturing back to the Weapon X facility, where his skeleton was fused with the metal adamantium, to find the antidote for a viral time bomb in his body that will take his life in 48 hours. Along the way, players will battle mutant baddies such as Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth, Wendigo, Juggernaut and Magneto. The game features the voices of Patrick Stewart (X-MEN) as Professor X and Mark Hamill (STAR WARS) as Wolverine. Manchester-based Genepool Software developed and produced the animation.
Larry Goldberg, evp, Activision Worldwide Studios, said, "X2 WOLVERINE'S REVENGE gives X-MEN fans something they've been waiting years for an opportunity to delve further into the depths of Wolverine's mysterious past. The game's gripping storyline and combination of stealth and action will allow everyone to experience what it means to be Wolverine."
