AU Shippin' Out February 22-26: Heavy Rain

Quantic Dream's emotional thriller makes its debut alongside Napoleon: Total War and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.


After years of teaser trailers and media demos, players will finally be able to make up their own mind about Sony's thriller Heavy Rain. Players will experience the game from the perspective of four different characters as each plot eventually weaves together to examine the mystery behind The Origami Killer. Expect to see Heavy Rain on store shelves around Australia this Thursday.

Thanks to Sega, 2010's first big PC exclusive is just around the corner, and it's called Napoleon: Total War. Improvements to this year's game include 64 face variations for foot soldiers, a new picture-in-picture screen that shows you what's going on in different areas of the battlefield, three campaigns that chronicles Napoleon's rise and fall, and more. Expect to see Napoleon: Total War out on the February 25.

Another anticipated PC title to release this week is S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat. Set in the abandoned town that once housed the families of those who worked at Chernobyl, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is set shortly after Shadow of Chernobyl and takes place from the perspective of a Ukrainian agent sent in to investigate a failed military offensive against the region. The third chapter in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise is due out later this week.
