MTV Networks Entertainment Group Launches 345 Games Unit
Posted on April 12, 2011MTV Networks Entertainment Group has announced the launch of 345 Games, a new video gaming arm of Comedy Central and Spike TV. The new gaming unit will develop products based on the company's franchises and brands. The first two titles to be released under this new label will be from Comedy Central's animated show Ugly Americans and Spike's series, Deadliest Warrior, which has already spawned the video game Deadliest Warrior: The Game. This summer, 345 Games will be releasing two new titles – the mid-July launch of Deadliest Warrior: Legends and the August launch of Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon.
Deadliest Warrior: Legends will put gamers on the battlefield with the most legendary warriors in history. This version will feature new heroic warriors, new fighting options, a more precise projectile system, more arenas and a new campaign mode. Players are armed with signature weaponry and combat skills unique to each warrior.
Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon is a four player co-op side scroller shooter game, which will feature an exclusive script written by the show writers and creators. Players will hit the streets to clean up the chaos and prevent the impending apocalypse by resolving case files and fighting otherworldly citizens.
Both games will be available for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network for a retail price of $10.
