The Warriors shot riot

Rockstar has released a selection of new shots from its upcoming adaptation of 1979 cult movie The Warriors.

As we've come to expect from the GTA and Manhunt publisher, The Warriors promises to feature plenty of gratuitous violence as the action follows a persecuted posse fighting its way home through hostile New York gang turf.

In addition to brainless brutality, there's also mindless miscreant mischief to be had in the form of looting, mugging and swiping car stereos.

We a little while ago and, having seen it in full flow, are optimistic that Rockstar Toronto's effort will be a lip-splitting, teeth-spitting gang bang of perversely satisfying street brawling.

The Warriors will be released for PS2 and Xbox in October
