A handful of new screens from upcoming TV spin-off The Shield
just landed in SPOnG's inbox courtesy of the game's publisher, Xplosiv. Since we love peering into the world of dirty cops as much as the next couch potato, we've decided to share.
SPOnG had a quick word with Xsplosiv and was told that, thanks to an eight months gap between the US and European releases, the development team's spent a lot of time addressing gameplay issues such as graphical balancing and AI targeting issues.
What we're left with is a third-person shooter that follows tough, no-nonsense and bent cop, Vic Mackey, as he makes his way through the Farmington underworld. And, from the look of these screens, watches a bit of porn.
Michael Chiklis, who plays Mackey, has been doing well for in-game time recently. As well as his character appearing in The Shield
he also plays the ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing who stars in Activision's upcoming Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
's coming to the PS2 and PC soon. Keep your eyes on SPOnG for a full preview of The Shield
coming later in the week.
