Deep Silver has announced Narco Terror, a downloadable twin-stick shooter coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC this Summer.

The game, from the publisher of Metro: Last Light and Dead Island: Riptide, will hit the market sometime in Summer or Winter in the Southern Hemisphere. According to developer Rubicon Organization, "Narco Terror is a wild, collateral-justice twin-stick shooter that combines the magnetism and atmosphere of 80's movies and games, with high-def visuals, next-gen gameplay, and overwhelming destructive chaos."

The campaign supports co-op play with up to two players on a single machine, or online co-op with players able to drop in or drop out at any time.

The game also features customizable weapons and will include 2D side-scrolling sections. According to the game's story line, protagonist Rick Quinn is charged with the task of rescuing his daughter from drug cartel head Delgado. He completes the task with the help of his former special ops skills.

According to Rubicon, gamers can expect the following from Narco Terror:

"An arsenal of customizable weapons, different ammo types from explosive rounds to tesla coils, grenades, power-ups, upgrades and character progression allow a rich variety in Quinn's crusade through hostile territory. Quinn also has a love for heavy machinery, and will be piloting helicopters and aircraft, battling through enemy lines consisting of massive tanks, armed helicopters and fast planes. Add different play modes from 2D side-scrolling to top down vertical sequences, all presented in blazing visuals, Narco Terror offers game play diversification never seen before."

Rubicon Organization has inked a contractual partnership deal with the owners of Deep Silver, Koch Media, to produce up to five titles.
