Lorne Lanning Interview from Game Spy. Confirmed Info!!!
The interview was on video and unfortunately I don't have a transcript of the chat, but here are a few points raised:

  • Stranger is described as a 'mysterious lone bounty hunter'.

  • He also has a life threatening health issue, and he needs to raise a lot of money to get fixed.

  • Strangers first mission is to hunt 12 bounty's, the higher the bounty on a character the higher the difficulty.

  • The game is described as 3rd person action and 1st person shooting.

  • Stranger doesn't like guns

  • He has a double barrel crossbow which shoots live ammo.

  • You are able to mix combinations of the live ammo for different results.

  • Live ammo mentioned was: Bolamite (spiderball), Chip Punk ( he talks trash/sarcastic), and the Skunkbomb (he makes enemies puke).

  • You can also upgrade the live ammo for eg. The Chip punk can have a PA System (head set) which allows him to speak louder and draw in more enemies.

  • There is also a lot of AI, which makes other creatures aware of whats going on in the world around them, eg. If you bump into them they respond/react.

  • There is also an incentive to not kill the enemy they are worth more bounty if you catch them alive.

  • The game play is said to feel more like a movie or show.

  • After catching the 12 bounty's it is said that the plot thickens and leads to a more epic conclusion...
