Black Assaults Retail Stores

Prepare to go in all guns blazing. Electronic Arts today announced that BLACK is now available at North American retailers for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. A hotly-anticipated first person shooter from Criterion Games (creators of the Burnout franchise), BLACK delivers explosive Hollywood-style gun battles and destruction set against the modern war on terror. BLACK casts players as Sgt. First Class Jack Kellar, the leader of an enigmatic Black Operations team sent in to Eastern Europe to eliminate a traitor.

Conceived following a trip to a Las Vegas gun range, the game’s intent is to deliver the loudest, most thrilling weapons and gunplay ever in a videogame … which has earned the game a reputation for being “gun porn� among industry press. “Guns are loud, exhilarating and utterly terrifying things,� said Alex Ward, creative director, Criterion Games. “BLACK delivers a deep shooting experience that captures the paralyzing sensation of pulling the trigger of dangerous and exotic automatic weapons.�
