"Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 and Frogger 2 to Luanch on Xbox LIVE Aracde"

Les Ulis, June 18th, 2008 - One of the most popular arcade shooter series of the 80s returns and gamers get a fresh take on a classic arcade game when “Wolf of the Battlefield™: Commando 3” and “Frogger® 2” is available on on Xbox LIVE Arcade.

As the spiritual successor to the Commando and Mercs classic shooter series, Wolf of the Battlefield™: Commando 3 brings some serious nonstop blasting action to the digital download space befitting the games renowned lineage. Players will assume the role of a rag-tag group of specialized soldiers, each with their own unique characteristics, who take on General Ratiev, a tyrannical despot pent on global shenanigans. Thankfully, players won’t be alone on this seemingly impossible mission; up to three players can enjoy the classic arcade-style shooter simultaneously on a single console or online. Wolf of the Battlefield™: Commando 3 also compensates for the co-op multiplayer mode by dynamically shifting difficulty levels based on the number of players in the game, ensuring that the game always poses a challenge.
