Koei sends word that Winback 2: Project Poseidon has been released for the Playstation 2 and Xbox consoles today.

KOEI, recognized worldwide as the premier brand of strategy and action games, today announced that its eagerly-awaited action game, WINBACK 2: PROJECT POSEIDON has shipped to North American retailers and is in stores now. WINBACK 2: PROJECT POSEIDON is for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, and Xbox video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

In a world where terror takes many forms, a new weapon threatens to shake the balance of power. Freedom’s last hope rests in the hands of three new operatives, who must race against time to recover this doomsday device. The fate of the world hangs by a thread, and a few ticks of the clock could mean the difference between justice and annihilation.

The follow-up to the smash-hit Winback: Covert Operations, WINBACK 2: PROJECT POSEIDON brings to the series a new "route" system that lets players experience each mission from the perspective of different operatives. There are 30 intense missions, multiple difficulty levels, and new weapons including the highly-anticipated sniper rifle.

The new Winback assault team is comprised of three young, yet combat-proven operatives led by Craig Contrell. Each team member is qualified in six different weapon types and highly-adept at CQB (Close Quarter Battle). They are masters of target identification, engagement and shot placement. In the hands of the player, all of these techniques will be put to the test. The game’s unique shooting action is spread across 30 high-risk operations situated in challenging urban environments and conveyances.

In virtually every environment, a flawless team effort is needed to accomplish each mission. In the game, missions are divided into two Routes, A and B. In Route A players will perform a supporting role, unlocking doors and laying down suppressing fire for your teammate in Route B. As the teammate in Route B, the player will proceed along the path that was cleared in Route A.

Developed by Cavia for KOEI Co., Ltd., WINBACK 2: PROJECT POSEIDON is a 1-4 player game (offline), and is rated “T” (Teen- Mild Language, Violence) by the ESRB.
