‘This is Vegas’ Coming to Xbox 360, PS3; First Screenshots

Gambling. Racing. Brawls. Loose women. These are all things a powerful businessman hopes to squeeze out of Las Vegas in Midway’s just-announced new game in development, This is Vegas.

In the game, players will assume the role of a man who must fight, gamble (illegally even), drive and party his way into returning Vegas to the adult playground it’s meant to be. An open world sandbox and adult-themed content will definitely give a Grand Theft Auto IV feel to the game, while the Vegas-esque scenery and missions will provide something entirely new.

“We are thrilled to be unveiling the first-ever videogame experience which allows players to live out their wildest Vegas fantasies,” said Alan Patmore, studio head, Surreal. “Whether it’s partying in the hottest night clubs, racing in underground circuits, testing your luck at the tables or getting into a barroom brawl, This is Vegas has it all.”

Midway’s Seattle-based studio Surreal is developing This is Vegas for release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the PC. This is Vegas is expected in stores sometime later this year.
