Shellshock sequel due next Friday

Rebellion's Vietnam shooter arrives at last.

Eidos plans to release Shellshock 2: Blood Trails for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on Friday 13th February.

This is the spooky and brutal Vietnam survival-shooter about the lone survivor of a top secret army mission that was meant to retrieve a mysterious missing "Whiteknight" consignment.

Sadly he's gone crackers, and has bought whatever made him that way back with him, prompting a wave of madness to sweep over the rest of soldiers, who soon start killing each other.

British developer Rebellion of Rogue Trooper credit will be at the helm, and everything looks suitably disturbing so far.

This will be the first PS3 and Xbox 360 project for the studio, and Eidos CEO Jason Kingsley said the Apocalypse Now-style game was looking "absolutely lovely".

We've not seen much of Shellshock 2: Blood Trails so far, perhaps worryingly; still, not long to find out now.
