It's shaping up to be a pretty grim Valentine's Day for gamers. Sega has already set February 14 as the launch date for Binary Domain, a third-person shooter about humanity's subjugation by its own robotic creations. Now Sony has pinned the same date down for Twisted Metal, the latest entry in its sinister vehicular combat series featuring a cast of crazed characters with a serious bloodlust.
Eat Sleep Play cofounder David Jaffe revealed the new date in a video message on the PlayStation Blog. Originally set for an October 4 debut, Twisted Metal was delayed earlier this month, with Jaffe saying at the time that the game wasn't ready, but the postponement would allow the team to "polish our demented baby until it shines."
The first installment in the series since 2008's Twisted Metal: Head-On - Extra Twisted Edition for the PlayStation 2, Twisted Metal is being developed by many of the series' original designers at Eat Sleep Play. Besides a campaign mode, the game will sport two-player split-screen action, as well as online battles.
