Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that "Wanted: Weapons of Fate" has been shipped and is now available.

"Based on Universal Pictures’ action-thriller Wanted, the game is an intense, third-person action game that takes combat to a new level with iconic techniques and moves drawn directly from the film – such as "Curving Bullets" and "Assassin Time" — as well as an innovative, multi-layered cover mechanic.

The storyline of Wanted: Weapons of Fate picks up where the film leaves off, providing fans with a new stage to explore in hero Wesley’s journey to becoming an über-assassin in a secret organization of killers. In the game, players can take on the role of Wesley or his father, Cross, to confront all new enemies — including the French chapter of the Fraternity, a group that is fanatical about upholding the code of the Loom of Fate. The French chapter is headed by The Immortal, a severe Fraternity leader with a grudge against Wesley and his family. It also employs Araña, a beautiful-but-deadly Spanish assassin and Brummel, the businessman/assassin who is as street smart as he is sophisticated.

The game includes the vocal talents of Thomas Kretschmann, who reprises his film role as Cross, a former member of the Fraternity who finds himself the target of those who were once his allies. Terence Stamp also returns to his role from the film as Pekwarsky, a close friend of the Killer with knowledge of the inner workings and secrets of the Fraternity. Grammy® Award-winning hip-hop artist and actor Common voices the role of Brummel, while Paz Vega plays Araña. Additionally, award-winning actor Peter Stormare lends his voice as The Immortal, the leader of the French Fraternity who will stop at nothing to follow the film’s Fraternity of Weavers.

Wanted, starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie, the blockbuster feature film upon which the games is based, recently debuted on DVD and Blu-ray Hi-Def from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Universal Studios Home Entertainment’s Wanted DVD and Blu-ray feature 10 secret codes for the Wanted: Weapons of Fate video game hidden among the menu screen and bonus features. Eight codes are on both the 2-disc special edition DVD and Blu-ray editions, and two additional codes reside solely in the Blu-ray version. The codes unlock a new character, access enhanced weaponry and exclusive game modes, among other options.

Wanted: Weapons of Fate is rated “M” for Mature and is available for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 for the suggested retail price of $59.99. It is also available for Games for Windows at retail outlets for the suggested retail price of $49.99.
