Story details about the in-development sequel to 50 Cent: Bulletproof have been released, sending the rapper and his crew off to bust some caps in the Middle East.
The new game, entitled 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, sees the intrepid musician and his loyal G-Unit crew setting off to a fictional Middle Eastern country to play a concert, according to an IGN interview with producer Aaron Blean. “This is where the “blood on the sand” comes in,” Blean said. “They put on the performance; the people are pleased, but the concert promoter stiffs them and doesn’t give 50 and G-Unit their payment.”
As you might expect, this sort of treatment doesn’t sit well with 50 and his associates, who suggest there will be “consequences” if the payment isn’t made. Short on cash but reluctant to cross the angry gangstas, the promoter offers 50 a valuable diamond-encrusted skull in lieu of cash.
“So 50 gets the skull, and as he’s about to leave this war-torn country, when they’re ambushed and the skull is taken,” Blean continued. “They escape the ambush, but they’re without the skull. So 50’s motivated to get what belongs to him. So basically, throughout the game, he’s trying to track these people down and find out who they are and why he was ambushed.”
According to Blean, a Hollywood-based Muslim writer was hired to script the project, which is going to focus “a little more on the story” than the original 50 Cent game. 50 himself is said to be “heavily involved” in the game and the decision to take it out of the hood and into a more unique setting.
