Information on the upcoming Rambo: The Video Game has been scarce, but the movie tie-in is finally going to break cover at August's Gamescom expo with a playable version available on the show floor.
Publisher Reef Entertainment hadn't uttered a peep about it since reaching a deal with rights holder StudioCanal back in August 2011.
Its June 6 announcement was similarly tight-lipped, embellished only by a quote from Rambo: First Blood to extol John Rambo's fighting qualities.
Reef's most recent game was March 2012 puzzle title Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle for the Wii, DS, PlayStation3 and Windows systems; before that, it was Sniper Elite for the Wii in 2010.
Rambo's already appeared in several videogames down the years, from the 1980s' officially licensed Rambo, Rambo II and Rambo III to a wealth of spoofs and homages including those of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, World of Warcraft, Rocketbirds, Contra, Ikari Warriors, and Facebook political parody Hillary: First Blood.
This year's Gamescom expo in Cologne, Germany, runs August 15-19, coinciding with the cinematic debut of Rambo Sylvester Stallone's ensemble action sequel The Expendables 2. - Relaxnews
