EA and developer’s Hothead Games have announced that their upcoming downloadable game, DeathSpank, will be released on July 14th for Xbox LIVE Arcade. The game aims to be a witty, fast, addictive action-RPG that will put players in the role of DeathSpank on an epic journey in search of a mysterious artifact known only as, “The Artifact”.
DeathSpank has been developed under the direction of Ron Gilbert, who created ‘The Secret of Monkey Island’, and he has put his own unique humor and spin on the game to make it an enjoyable experience with a few laughs along the way. Players will gain quests from a colorful cast of characters, and vanquish evil with fast and furious action as DeathSpank scours the world for a mystical artifact.

DeathSpank, also known as â€śHero to the Downtroddenâ€ť embarks on his epic journey in search of “The Artifact” with his trusty sidekick, Sparkles the Wizard. Sparkle’s abilities are magical, which perfectly compliment DeathSpankâ€™s weapons-based attacks as the duo battle against the intolerant minions of injustice. Sparkles can also be controlled within the game by a 2nd player on local co-op mode only. The game is filled to the brim with hundreds of weapons, armor sets, witty dialog, improbable scenarios, unexpected villains, and challenging bosses in a story that is unravelled in up to fifteen hours of gameplay.
Available for download beginning July 13, 2010 on the PlayStation Network for $14.99, and July 14, 2010 on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points.
