[News] [X360]

With GTA IV still being heavily played all across the world it is simply a miracle that an XBLA title is being released to us not to mention a few other goodies.

Xbox Live Arcade

Assault Hereos 2
1-2 Local Players/2 Xbox Live Players - Rated T - 800 Points - Sierra Online

Take to the next tracks with revved up excitement as your former enemy was merely a pawn of an even more devastating alien race.  Take your skills across the lands and into space in order to defeat these new enemies.

  • Enhanced multiplayer co-op: Quickly activate improved cooperative weapons to rain destruction on hordes of bazooka soldiers, kamikaze bombers, and more.
  • Hijack-able enemy units:  Steal the attack helicopter, armored tank, or mechanical walker from the enemy base for surprise attacks.
  • More powerful weaponry: Utilize a superior arsenal of weapons including the newly designed sub-zero freezing ice cannon, homing missiles, rocket launcher, and upgraded firearms from the original.
  • Frantic on-foot action: Survive on-foot warfare while equipped with all your weapons in expansive underground areas.
    Monstrous bosses: Face off against challenging mechanoid beasts before they destroy you.
  • New diverse and interactive environments: Blast through the Snowy Mountains, Rainforest and Outer Space with extensive destructible terrain from burning trees to shattering buildings.

If you didn't catch SuperGuido's post about it, Sierra Entertainment released a multiplayer map pack for Timeshift.  Five new maps are available free of charge and allow players to unravel time with their chrono grenades.  Classic modes are available but the King of Time and Meltdown madness modes reveal that the future of gaming can be found in this Futures-Past Multiplayer Map Pack.
