We are pleased to present another large update on the development of Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer, a shoot'em up project in development at SideQuest Studios and published by eastasiasoft.

Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer for PlayStation3™ and PC

No doubt, there has been a lot of gossip surrounding one big question: What platform will Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer be released for? After receiving more than 3700 votes through the poll held earlier at Soldner-X.com and speculations on a number of forums, eastasiasoft has finally unveiled more details.

Based on eastasiasoft's official press release published today, Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer is targeted to be released for PlayStation3™ (in Winter 07/08) and PC (Q4/2007). The PlayStation3™ version is anticipated to be a downloadable release, available only via the PS Network. More details, such as territories in which Söldner-X will be available are yet to be announced.
