Action movie fans must have been whooping and hollering in their seats during the explosion and action-fest that was the movie “The Expendables”. Now with a sequel movie announced to arrive in August, developer Ubisoft has taken the reigns and decided to release a prequel to this sequel (basically, it will join the movies together), and is due to feature a whole heap of explosions and other action set-pieces.
