September 22, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

Shortly after DeathSpank released, Electronic Arts announced a sequel in the form of DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue. The game was recently detailed, and now the publisher has announced it’s available in Europe.

DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is now available for £9.99 on the PlayStation Network. The follow-up to last summer’s award-winning, chart-topping action role-playing game, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is a “fresh new adventure where players hack, slash and shoot their way through mission after mission, in search of the six mystical thongs that are corrupting the universe.”

Gamers who purchase the game in its first week will receive two pieces of free downloadable content:

  • The Snowy Mountain Dungeon – a terrifying, ice-covered dungeon frozen in the North Pole where evil enemies of ice, flesh and terror dwell
  • A new playable co-op character, Sidekick Tankko – Half-man, half-spider and all awesome, Sidekick Tankko is a deadly warrior who spews mighty clouds of poison and entraps enemies with his inescapable web attacks.

Vlad Ceraldi, Director of Game Development at Hothead Games said:

“We took all of the things that people loved about DeathSpank and cranked it to 11. DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is a great new experience. We’ve added more crazy weapons, areas and enemies of course and more thongs!”

DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue puts players in the mighty boots of DeathSpank in his quest to destroy the six mystical thongs which have corrupted those who wear them, and thus the universe. Players will travel through war-torn country sides, outer space and even the North Pole in an epic battle against an Evil Santa, collecting tons of loot along the way. The PSN title also includes a local co-op mode – something which the first title was unfortunately lacking –  allowing a second player to help in the search for the thongs with either of his two trusty sidekicks, Sparkles the Wizard or Ninjatastic Steve.
