Eidos to rap with porn stars at E3

Adult actress Tera Patrick will help the publisher show off its new game lineup, which includes a new hip-hop-themed title.

Lara Croft may not be at E3 this year, but that isn't stopping Eidos from using scantily clad women to help promote its games. Today, the publisher let the world know that adult film star Tera Patrick will be on hand to help promote Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes the Neighborhood. Patrick is one of the playable celebrities in the Paradox-developed game, along with the rap-shock-rock group the Insane Clown Posse, who will also appear at the Eidos booth.

Eidos is also going after gamers who prefer their hip-hop without the white makeup and red noses. At E3, the publisher will be also be premiering Get on Da Mic, a musical role-playing game that simulates the career of a rising rapper. Developer A2M promises the game will let players "live the fantasy resulting from their rap superstardom, embracing the famous excesses of the hip-hop lifestyle." According to Eidos, the game will cover every state of a rapper's career, from street-level rhyme battles, to 8 Mile-style rap battles, to studio recordings, and on to the opulent living exhibited in oh-so-many Hype Williams videos. Get on Da Mic is set for a fall 2004 release on "major video game systems," with a dance-centric sequel called Get on Da Floor planned for early 2005.

Eidos will be showcasing several other games at E3, including the already released stealth-kill game Hitman: Contracts; Crash 'N' Burn, a racing game that lets you immaculately detail your car before realistically wrecking it; Imperial Glory, a PC RTS featuring Victorian Age conflicts; and Singles – Flirt Up Your Life, the risqué romance sim from Europe.
