Notice: Ps2Fantasy.com has been undergoing a major redesign for a long time. Ps2Fantasy.com will soon become PsFantasy.com, a professional network of websites covering all PlayStation platforms. We will offer more updates than ever, in-depth content, and a series of services to our community. During this process, functionality of this website and frequency of updates are very limited.
During E3, gamers can experience the first-person thrills and action of TimeSplitters 2 in the PlayStation 2 online themed area. Gamers will have the opportunity to battle online multiplayer style with opponents at a separate remote location. TimeSplitters 2 further extends its multiplayer possibilities with I-Link support allowing multiple consoles and players to be linked together.
"We are very pleased that TimeSplitters 2 is one of the selected titles dedicated to showcasing the PlayStation 2 system's online technology at E3," says Paul Baldwin, vice president of marketing at Eidos Interactive. "The original TimeSplitters is still recognized as offering the best multiplayer experience on the PlayStation 2, so it comes as no surprise that the sequel will extend that multiplayer brilliance online."
"TimeSplitters 2 is an ideal property to take online and we are pleased to have the title exclusively on the PlayStation 2 platform," said Andrew House, senior vice president, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "Eidos has captured the spirit of the console-based, first-person shooter experience, and the addition of multi-player online gaming adds a new dimension to the product. We feel that fans of this genre will be pleased with the advancements presented in TimeSplitters 2."
