Rockstar Games confirms GameCube version of Smuggler's Run for July

Source - IGN

Rockstar Games has announced Smuggler's Run: Warzones for the GameCube, to be developed by Angel Studios. Warzones is less of a port and more of an extension, which is why Rockstar has opted for the new moniker. As with the PlayStation 2's Smuggler's Run 2: Hostile Territory, players will be dragged all over the world, from war-torn Vietnam to the perilous streets of Eastern Europe, but the GameCube version will also include a couple of extra levels. The graphical engine has been given an overhaul to take advantage of the GameCube's capabilities. Apart from the usual, expansive 3D environments and incalculable draw distance, Angel Studios has used the Cube's power to include realistic trees and vegetation, rocky outcroppings and building architecture. In addition, more vehicles will be able to move onscreen this time without incurring slowdown. All sorts of particle effects will be included, says Rockstar, along with dynamic reflection mapping on the vehicles. Split-screen multiplayer is promised once again, this time with the capacity for up to four participants. Take 2 confirmed this morning that Smuggler's Run: Warzones is set for a 26th July release in Europe. Related Feature - Smuggler's Run 2: Hostile Territory PlayStation 2 review
