Stranglehold Media

Midway has released the first screenshots and a trailer from Stranglehold, the third person action game in development at Midway Chicago. Collaborating with Midway is action director John Woo, who is helping with the game's storyline, cutscenes and camera placement. The game also features Chow Yun-Fat as Inspector Tequila, the character from Woo's cult classic Hard Boiled. According to the game's fact sheet, "Tequila's loyalties to the force are tested when his ex-wife is kidnapped by the Russian mob in Chicago. Tequila struggles to balance his duty to uphold the law with doing what it takes to save his family". Stranglehold is powered by Unreal Engine 3.0 and will be released on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 next winter.
