More details on G.I. Joe Operation Blackout video game

We’re back in a G.I. Joe world with the highly successful release of the G.I. Joe Classified Series figure line. Now we’re getting more information on what appears to be the inspiration for the figure line with the G.. Joe Operation Blackout video game coming for PS4 and XBox. Best Buy posted the pre-order for the game, set to be released this October for $39.99,  but apparently it was earlier than intended as it’s been taken down.     

But we did get the synopsis and a few screenshots of the game that look pretty promising.


G.I. Joe and Cobra are back! G.I. Joe Operation Blackout is a classic team-based third-person shooter game where you play as your favorite characters from Team G.I. Joe and Team Cobra. Experience the action from both sides as you help G.I. Joe restore order and lead Cobra to world domination.
It does look a little weird seeing Storm Shadow using a gun though…
  • Number of players: Compete in 4-player PvP matches
  • Manufacturer’s recommended age: Recommended for ages 13 and up
  • Characters: Play with your favorite characters including Snake Eyes, Duke, Roadblock, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander and Destro.



I wonder how extensive the game will be and exactly how many Joes and Cobras we’ll see. I absolutely hope my boy Flint makes the cut too.
