Wow, a lot of “Gone Gold” announcements in the past few days. Today it’s Midway’s turn it seems as they were happily spreading the word that the Xbox 360 version of John Woo’s Stranglehold has reached Gold status, meaning the game is now finished and has been sent off to the presses.
The full Xbox 360 version of the game will ship in North America on September 5th and in Europe on September 14th. Don’t forget, there’s also a demo of Stranglehold on Xbox LIVE if you haven’t yet checked it out. Definitely check it out before you buy – some people have found it not to be their cup of tea even though they we’re really looking forward to it.
Above is a TV Spot Midway released today and here’s a little about the game if you haven’t been following it: “Stranglehold allows players to experience the excitement of true next-gen action as you take on the role of Inspector Tequila. Ensnared by a crime boss with a gripping secret, Inspector Tequila is forced to cross the line from sworn duty to renegade cop. Engage your enemies with intense cinematic gun battles and cause massive environmental damage in real-time or revolutionary slow-motion Tequila Time.”
