As always, ludicrous enemies and self-referential humor are the order of the day. Matt Hazard Pours One Out For His Classic Arcade Action Homies This Winter in The New D3Publisher Videogame Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond. Matt Hazard is going back in time to protect what matters most - his own 8-bit self - in the new side-scrolling shooter Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond from D3Publisher, coming this winter to PSN.


Matt Hazard, the star of renowned videogames like Conflict of the Deities and Haz-Matt Carts, has been a videogame icon for more than two decades. Matt lived on top of the videogame charts for many years until an abrupt retirement brought him down. Now fresh from an epic battle with Wallace Wellesley and the revitalization of his career, Matt has a chip on his shoulder and is ready to tear down General Neutronov and a back catalog of timeless and ageless videogame foes.

Developed by Vicious Cycle, Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond is rated “M” (Mature – Blood and Gore, Strong Language, and Violence) by the ESRB.

About Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond

General Neutronov, one of Matt’s nemeses has reactivated all of Hazard’s greatest enemies from classics like Matt’s original adventure, The Adventures of Matt in Hazard Land and Chest of the Pirate Queen in an attempt to destroy Matt’s former self in the past and end his present. Matt has no time for a leisurely stroll down memory lane in Blood Bath and Beyond as he chases Neutronov through the games of the past in order to save his future.


Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond is a flood of carnage that the classic 8-bit side-scroller era didn’t want gamers to see. Recreated today with next-gen 3D graphics, it’s nonstop run-and-gun action at its finest. Take a suspenseful ride in single player or co-op through a pirate hideout, an ancient Japanese castle, the Old West, Siberian ice mines, and even the moon and relive some of the most classic and violent moments in Matt Hazard’s videogame history.

Parody Alert!!! Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond Comes to PSN This Week

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond chronicles the latest adventures of Matt Hazard, internationally renowned video game action hero and star of the 2009 blockbuster next-gen hit, Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard*.


In Blood Bath and Beyond, Matt returns to his side-scrolling roots to track down his arch-enemy, General Neutronov, who has travelled back in time and kidnapped the 8-bit version of Matt. The Russian general plans to destroy Matt’s earlier self so that Neutronov will never suffer the humiliating defeats that the hero has dealt him over the years.

This tongue-in-cheek journey through Matt’s history takes the player on a tour of the “classic” titles released by Marathon Software, the company that put Matt Hazard on the map. Matt takes on a wide range of enemies—from pirates to penguins; lighthouses to laser-wielding astronauts; Mounties to mechanical rhinos—as he peruses the parody-laden landscapes of games that never were.


Blood Bath and Beyond is available for download on the PlayStation Network for $14.99 starting on January 7, 2010.
