First Look: XS Force (Teaser Trailer)

Having been weaned from an early age on a diet of Schwarzenegger and Stallone flicks, the press release for Rocket 5 Studios’ upcoming arcade shoot ’em up couldn’t help but catch my eye. The game, catchily entitled XS Force, looks set to pay tongue-in-cheek homage to some of the biggest action movie stars of the 80′s and 90’s, if the brilliant teaser trailer is anything to go by.

The footage hints at the game’s first playable character and closes with a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it snippet of gameplay. In the run-up to XS Force’s planned summer release, Rocket 5 will be demoing the game to the press at GDC in March and unveiling further musclebound, tooled-up protagonists via a series of teaser trailers scheduled to be aired on the game’s official website in the coming months.
