Righteous Kill 2: Revenge of the Poet Killer

That must've been some pretty bad poetry.


CHAPEL HILL, NC - May 26, 2009 - Merscom announced today's game release of Righteous Kill 2: Revenge of the Poet Killer, inspired by the feature from Overture Films, Righteous Kill, which is debuting on Starz on June 6, 2009 at 9PM ET/PT.

In Righteous Kill 2: Revenge of the Poet Killer, the player once again takes on the role of Erica Dean as she looks into a new rash of murders. The game is set about a year after the events of the first Poet Killer. A mob hitman is found dead, with a poem lying on his body. Erica Dean is called in to find the killer before things get out of hand. Work through multiple versions of varied locations looking for clues to the identity of the Poet Killer. Enlist the help of Mary Jacobs, a new forensic officer, to assist Erica in analyzing the items from the crime scenes. Hunt down the killer and put an end to his vigilante killings before it's too late.

"Given the tremendous success of the original Righteous Kill game, we are confident this product will help our customers extend the experience they enjoyed both with the game and movie." explained Lloyd Melnick, Chief Customer Officer at Merscom, "Given the higher production values in Revenge of the Poet Killer, this game will almost certainly be another hit for Merscom and Starz Digital Media."
