Gladiator Begins

Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife, owner of a new PSP title.

Developed by the same studio responsible for the Tenchu and Way of the Samurai series, Gladiator Begins combines the bloody, brain-smashing violence of Gladiatorial combat with deep customisation options - where your choices outside battle greatly affect your chances of victory in the arena.

Gladiator Begins will deliver;

• Ultra-violent Gladiatorial combat – but with a deep underbelly of RPG

elements and customisation.

• Take your Gladiator from humble slave to skilled Gladiator by battling for gold and

skill points to develop your character’s abilities.

• Choose your own fighting style and exploit an innovative fighting system that

allows you to target individual body or armour parts and disarm opponents.

• As your fame rises, different characters open up different story paths for an engrossing story with added replayability.

Players will also be able to enhance their experience with FREE Downloadable Content, via Playstation Network – including new weapons, armour and characters.

Gladiator Begins will be available in the UK and Europe in May 2011
