THQ and video game developer Pandemic Studios yesterday announced a sequel to their popular video game Destroy All Humans!. Destroy All Humans! 2 is set to debut for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox video game systems this fall.
In Destroy All Humans! 2, said THQ, gamers once again assume the role of an alien scout as they embark on another mission to take over the planet. The game is set in the sixties this time, with highlighted game features including expanded open-world game play, co-op multiplayer, upgraded arsenal of weapons, enhanced mental abilities and a variety of new enemies.
“Destroy All Humans! illustrates THQ’s commitment to developing innovative and original games, and it accomplished impressive sales success by achieving Greatest Hits and Platinum Hits status less than a year after launch,” said Kelly Flock, executive vice president, Worldwide Publishing, THQ, in a statement. “Destroy All Humans! 2 builds upon everything people loved about the first game, adds tons of new features and gives fans of the original and newcomers something to get excited about later this year.”
“We are pulling out all the stops for the sequel, adding multiplayer co-op, five new open-worlds to explore and the same irreverent humor that was a hallmark of the first Destroy All Humans! game,” added Pandemic President Josh Resnick. “With the new 60s era setting, we have plenty of new material to work with — from Hippies and British spy movies to Japanese monster flicks.”
