This week’s XBox Live Arcade release will be Sierra Online’s Assault Heroes 2, the sequel to the previous XBLA hit that recently got a price reduction. From the official press release:
“Assault Heroes 2” reveals that the original enemy in “Assault Heroes” is merely a pawn of a more sinister force, which players must now seek out and destroy. Armed with stronger weaponry and the ability to hi-jack more powerful enemy units, players must prepare to face relentless enemies and outrageous bosses in climactic battles, including an all-out skirmish in outer space.
In the sequel, players can experience the full fury of war outside of the safety of their vehicle with even more intense on-foot gameplay, where increased firepower and the new dodge roll feature are necessary to survive. Players can choose to fight alone or battle with a friend using the enhanced two-player cooperative mode. Either way, players will travel through diverse and interactive environments on land and in space to overcome the newest enemy and save mankind.
Assault Heroes 2 rolls onto the Arcade this Wednesday for 800 MS Points ($10).
