London, England. Feb 16th, 2006 - South Peak Interactive have announced that they are bringing the sequel to the 1.6 million selling State of Emergency to PlayStation 2. Developed by DC Studios, State of Emergency 2 is a state of the art, third person shooter that is set to be a global hit when it hits the shelves in April 2006.

State of Emergency 2 takes place 10-years after its predecessor and follows the story of Freedom, the vigilante group who brought the evil Corporation to their knees in State of Emergency. But the Corporation has regrouped and has been controlling the population by putting mind-controlling drugs in their fast food, you must help Spanky and the gang bring them down again in this all action, tongue-in-cheek blaster!

State of Emergency 2 successfully recaptures the riotous urban mayhem of the original in the beautifully rendered Capitol City. Once you help MacNeil escape death row, the adventure explodes into life. Literally! Players must blast their enemies into the middle of next week, tackling hordes of Corporation cronies, ghetto gang members and disgruntled rioters with an awesome array of weaponry and combat machinery.

"DC Studios have done a fantastic job in delivering a first class sequel to the No1 selling "State of Emergency". The sequel delivers in every area the first title did not with a captivating and engaging storyline, revolutionary AI, and high octane action from the first screen. This game grabs you, shakes you and kicks you out, feeling pleased, if not a little spent!" Shane Dodson, Managing Director, SouthPeak Interactive Ltd.

"We are thrilled to be working with a developer as talented and renowned as DC Studios and believe that the success of this title will lead to even bigger, even more amazing titles with them in the future."

State of Emergency 2 will be released across Europe this April on Sony PlayStation 2.
