If everyone’s favourite gangsta rapper taking out homies in the hood wasn’t good enough for you, 50 Cent is back to teach you some manners. Following on from the poor reception that met 50 Cent: Bulletproof, THQ is attempting to polish the rapper’s video game reputation in a peculiar way with the sequel, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. Placing the rapper into the hostile territory of a fictional Middle Eastern country, the game sees 50 Cent chase after his enemies in an attempt to unravel the truth about an ambush he suffered. Crafted in the Unreal 3 Engine to meet modern day graphical standards, the game will feature a single player mode as well as a drop-in/drop-out coop mode in which the secondary player can choose one of three G-Unit members. The game is currently set for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in January.
