Sudden Attack fans, it's up to you to save G4TV's own Attack of the Show! host Candace Bailey from the gas chamber in the free-to-play first-person shooter's new hostage mode. Hostage mode will pit the red and blue teams against one another, with one squad fighting to save the hostage while the other tries to keep them from doing so. Candace is replacing the captured Korean movie star in the game, and we have an exclusive trailer showing how it all went down.
Tell us about this edition of Sudden Attack:
I'm in the American version. I know in the other version, the girl is in a water tank or something, but this was a lot easier for me because I was in a tank with just fog or steam. But it's the same premise as the other one: I'm just the new girl.
What’s the storyline?
I was walking to my car going to an event and they put a bag over my head. The next thing I know, I wake up in this tank and I'm like, "What am I doing here? What's going on?" Then I realize that they've kidnapped me and I'm probably going to die. [Players can] save me or let me die. If they want me to die, I can die.
Why should players save you first?
Because if you don't save me, I won't be able to host Attack! anymore. And I need to do this daily live show called Attack of the Show!
How did this project come about?
It was someone who reached out to my manager, and he mentioned it to me and I was like, "Yeah, I would absolutely love to do this." I've done a video game before, but it was a long time ago and I wasn't actually me. I didn't play myself; I was a cartoon [character]. So this was really cool, to be able to play myself.
Did you have to do a lot of voice work for this?
I did...a month before we shot the other part [the trailer]. I went in and just said a bunch of lines and made a bunch of noises. I was coughing and saying "Ahhhh!" screaming. All these things. It was cool because I was doing it as myself, not as a character. They'd say, "How about you say this?" and I'd say, "I might say it more like this." Then they'd say "Yeah, do it that way!" So I had a lot of input.
Are you going to save yourself?
Obviously! Unless I hate myself. "Die, Candace, die!"
But the real question is are YOU going to save Candace in Sudden Attack? Head over to the Sudden Attack website to try out the game now. And between you and me, you really should save her, she's nice!
