THQ Ships The Outfit For Xbox 360

THQ today announced The Outfit, from internal studio Relic Entertainment, has shipped for the Xbox 360. “The Outfit puts players in the shoes of three allied heroes who are faster, stronger and more bad-ass than your every day soldier,” said Ron Moravek, vice president, THQ, General Manager, Relic Entertainment. “Just when players realize how explosive, over-the-top and truly fun the game is they’ll be introduced to three axis leaders in what we believe will be one of the most exciting multiplayer experiences ever.

The Outfit allows gamers to choose from three playable squad leaders — each with their own unique skills and abilities, as they lead a squad of soldiers behind enemy lines to battle the Nazi war machine. With interactive and fully destructible environments, players have the freedom to shoot, blow up or demolish anything in their path. As players complete mission objectives, they’ll gain field units (FUs) that can be used to order “Destruction on Demand” — air-dropped into the action at any time. Items available for purchase include tanks, half-tracks and other combat vehicles, machinegun nests and anti-tank emplacements, squad reinforcements, air strikes and artillery strikes. The cinematic intensity of WWII combat can be experienced through 12 epic single-player missions or online through a variety of Multiplayer modes, pitting the Allies against the Axis, with three playable Axis leaders in addition to the Allied heroes. The Outfit is available for a suggested retail price of $59.99.
