Fortified with sniping

KOEI announced today that Winback 2: Project Poseidon will be available next month on PS2 and Xbox. Similar to the original shootfest Winback, you direct a team of three highly trained counter-terrorism operatives in their desperate attempt to retrieve a doomsday device that threatens the entire world. Granted, we've seen this setup about a million times by now, but terrorists apparently never learn their lesson.

Although the plot doesn't seem original, a new "route" system that provides the three characters with an individual perspective for each mission could be just the innovation this type of game needs. Split-screen multiplayer for up to four players and the addition of a sniper rifle to the Winback operatives' arsenal might cause enough excitement to make this a game worth watching.

Winback 2: Project Poseidon is slated for release on April 18th.
