EA Announces Shank Release Date

July 20, 2010 Written by Sebastian Moss

At this year’s EA Studio Showcase, the publisher has promised to announce seven new games, which are “whimsical to strategic, athletic to horrific”. During the showcase, EA has announced that, as part of their EA Partners program, the knife wielding, arty downloadable game, Shank will release this August.

Set in a stylized, modern-Western setting, where a classic betrayal story directed through a “sophisticated cinematic lens, with addictive action gameplay found in classic 2D side-scrolling games”, Shank will release on August 24th and 25th on the PSN and XBL for $14.99.
