Become a hero!

EA’s Partnering with Hothead Games has finally blossomed for tomorrow fans of Ron Gilbert will rejoice with the release of his newest work in DeathSpank, developed under the direction of the legendary designer, DeathSpank takes players through a heroic adventure in the shoes of DeathSpank as he hacks and slashes his way through quests so epic you’d think they’d updated WoW, in a vast world filled with vibrant, eccentric and terrifying characters that you’d believe that the good old spirit of adventure gaming had made its way into the mainstream.

“While DeathSpank is definitely one of the funnier games out there, it’s more than a one trick pony,” said Vlad Ceraldi, Director of Game Development for Hothead Games. “We’ve built a game with fast-paced, addictive combat set in a world that has a tremendous amount of depth that is filled with dynamic characters, colorful environments and tons of cool weapons and loot. And yes, we still have ponies too -- trick ponies!”

Players assume the role of DeathSpank, dispenser of justice, vanquisher of evil, and hero to the downtrodden, on his epic journey in search of the mysterious magical artifact, known only as “The Artifact”. The game also includes co-op gameplay that allows a friend to team-up with DeathSpank as his trusty magical sidekick Sparkles the Wizard, whose magical abilities perfectly complement DeathSpank's weapon based attacks.

So download DeathSpank off the Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points, or the Playstation Network for £9.99, and become the true Dispenser of Justice!
