Tron 2.0: Killer App races to retail

Xbox version of the PC game inspired by the cult video game movie joins its GBA cousin on store shelves.

Last August, PC gamers got Tron 2.0, a first-person shooter which reworked the intra-computer world created by the cult classic film Tron. Over a year later, console jockeys are getting a chance to enter the same updated universe. Today, Buena Vista Interactive announced it has shipped Tron 2.0: Killer App for the Xbox. Rated "T" for Teen, the game retails for $39.99, $10 more than the Game Boy Advance version of the game, which shipped last month.

Unlike the Monolith-developed Tron 2.0, Tron 2.0: Killer App was developed by British studio Climax, creators of Sudeki and MotoGP3. Its plot follows that of the original game, dropping players into the midst of a virtual-world war being waged by a horde of evil programs led by the "user" Thorne. To stop them from bringing down computer systems worldwide, players will join up with benevolent security programs, using a variety of weapons, including the famous, Frisbee-like light discs from the film. Also returning from the film is actor Bruce Boxleitner, reprising his role as programmer Alan Bradley, who joins Rebecca Romijn in the film's voice cast.
