Midway has sent word that The Suffering: Ties That Bind has gone gold. The game is being released on the PS2, Xbox, and the PC. Set in the slums and prisons of Baltimore, the sequel to last year's The Suffering, it will be available on Monday, Sept. 26.

Ties That Bind promises to deliver more terror, with all-new twisted creatures and a few familiar faces. As Torque makes his way through the gritty streets, the disturbing demons seem to have followed him to the mainland and are now wreaking havoc across the city. As players explore the tough and unforgiving inner-city streets, poverty and urban injustices rear their ugly heads everywhere. Featuring three different beginnings and three different endings, the game will give players moral freedom as they delve into the perverse world of Torque's sanity to discover his past while struggling to control his future.
