The Showdown Effect Gets a New Website and Trailer

Posted Thu, Jan 17, 2013 by Martuk

The Showdown Effect brings all the cheesy one-liners and crazy action from the 1980s & 90s action movies and packs them into a 2D multiplayer action game full of clichés, explosions, and the occasional comedic laugh. To help show off what the game is all about, Paradox Entertainment has launched a new website for The Showdown Effect, complete with campy one-liner audio.

In addition to the website, a new gameplay trailer has also been released featuring a look at some of the stereotypical action characters and gameplay. Give it a look below.

The Showdown Effect launches on May 5th, 2013. You can sign up for the closed beta on The Showdown Effect website.

NEW YORK — January 17, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a no-nonsense publisher pushed to the edge with nothing left to lose, has launched a new website for The Showdown Effect, the multiplayer movie-massacre mayhem title scheduled for release on March 5, 2013. Visitors will get a taste of what waits for them in The Showdown Effect, and marvel at just how many bullets, explosions, and one-liners can be contained on a single site. There is also a chance to generate one’s own action movie tagline with a movie trailer voice, including such hits as “Destroy Action-Packed Pigeons!” at the following link:

In addition to the website, Paradox has also released a new video for The Showdown Effect, highlighting the title’s in-game animation and art. Viewers interested in how the game renders a man being blasted through a fourth-story window by a rocket explosion may view the informative piece here:
