SEATTLE, WA. (November 14, 2008) – Greenwave proudly announces Greg Hastings’ Tournament Paintball 2 (GHTP2), a new first person shooter capturing the sick intensity and incredibly unique game play of paintball – the Sport of Combat.
The Greg Hastings’ Tournament Paintball video game franchise will again impress dedicated gamers and paintball players alike who are looking for speed, strategy and skill in their next console shooter. GHTP 2 will launch on the Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in 2009. Other game platforms will be announced at a future date.
Set on the most realistic paintball battlefields, and utilizing distinct paintball formats, including 7 Man, 10 Man Woodsball, and Scenario play, GHTP2 will push the envelope of technology, showcasing artificial intelligence, graphics, physics and animations that fully embrace the true nature and realism of competition paintball. Gamers will take on real teams and earn their ranks in real leagues. On the road to becoming a champion in tournament speedball, woodsball and scenario tournaments, gamers will have an incredible array of paintball weaponry at their disposal, well beyond just paintball markers.
“GHTP has been in the top 10 on Xbox LIVE and critically acclaimed by world champion gamers, so I’m very excited to deliver another hit paintball shooter,” said Greg Hastings, long time professional player, 21 year paintball veteran, and deeply involved in the development of the GHTP franchise since its inception. “We are coding specifically for Xbox 360 and each other console, so you won’t see a substandard port here. Paintball is one of the fastest sports in the world, so I insist that our entire dev team become proficient at paintball. Once again, GHTP2 will thoroughly surprise you.”
Utilizing an all new proprietary engine, the much anticipated GHTP sequel will bring new, high-definition life into the GHTP franchise. With heavy emphasis on team management, growth of individual skills, choice of path through game, and fun paintball oriented game play, GHTP2 represents Greg Hastings’ and Greenwave’s continued commitment to deliver a unique shooter experience. GHTP2 is not yet rated.
“Making this game is a fun process,” said Oliver Lang, Captain of the World Champion Ironmen. “It’s very easy to see that this is authentic paintball. The more you make your character play smart paintball and by articulating your character’s body movements and positioning correctly, the more you’ll blast your opponents in the face. I have a pretty big character role in this game, so I’m having fun.”
The first GHTP video game launched on Xbox in 2004. Within a short time, the game’s unique and high speed game play established a following in the gamer and paintball communities. GHTP earned positive reviews, including a nomination by Gamespot for “Most Surprisingly Good Game of 2004.” With the interest and support of gamers and paintball players, GHTP achieved Platinum status on Xbox and reached Top 10 on Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network.
