G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout Is Announced For An October Release

Hasbro and GameMill Entertainment have announced their upcoming game G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is coming in October. This game looks pretty awesome as you will be playing an epic story told in comic book form, primarily taking inspiration from the comics series. You'll be playing as several iconic members of both the Joe forces as well as Cobra, telling the story chapter by chapter from that character's perspective. Beyond the story mode, you'll also have a few multiplayer modes including co-op and PvP battles. It's one of the few games that genuinely throw you into the middle of the battle between red and blue lasers you've seen for years. You can read more below along with screenshots and the trailer, as the game will be released on October 13th, 2020 for all three major consoles and PC.
