State of Emergency ships for Xbox

The Xbox version of Rockstar Games' riotous action game has shipped to stores in North America.

Rockstar Games has today shipped the Xbox version of State of Emergency to stores in North America, over a year after the original PlayStation 2 version was released. The Xbox version of State of Emergency boasts a number of improvements over the original game, not the least of which is the inclusion of a brand new multiplayer mode that allows up to four players--along with gangs of civilians--to participate in a number of different deathmatch variants.

"State of Emergency was a tremendous success on the PlayStation 2 with its over the top style, unique attitude and technical achievements. The Xbox has allowed us to add a multitude of improvements, most notably the frenzied addition of multiplayer modes. Xbox owners have yet to play a multiplayer game this intense," said Jamie King, Rockstar Games' vice president of development. "At a competitive price point of $19.99, the Xbox title offers players the chance to enjoy State of Emergency with all new multiplayer modes and get great value for their money."
