New York, NY June 24, 2010– Bow-chicka-bow-wow! With over 1.5 billion views on their site, the hottest web-series EVER returns with a reboot of Season 6 in all-new collectible packaging. Considered the fan favorite of the series, Reconstruction features superior production values and brilliantly funny storytelling told in machinima* style.
When a secret government project goes wrong, the Reds and Blues must reconstruct their units to form an unlikely new alliance. A new enemy. A new hero. The same bunch of rejects. It doesn’t take long to find out they’ve taken on more than they ever bargained for, but there’s no turning back. And no going home. Blood Gulch was only the beginning……
Red Vs. Blue Season 6: Reconstruction retails for $19.95 and is fully-loaded with a ton of extras including audio commentary by the filmmakers, special videos and PSAs, Deleted Scenes, hilarious outtakes and more!

So, What is Machinima?
Machinima (muh-sheen-eh-mah) is filmmaking within a real-time, 3D virtual environment, often using 3D video-game technologies.
In an expanded definition, it is the convergence of filmmaking, animation and game development. Machinima is real-world filmmaking techniques applied within an interactive virtual space where characters and events can be either controlled by humans, scripts or artificial intelligence.
By combining the techniques of filmmaking, animation production and the technology of real-time 3D game engines, Machinima makes for a very cost- and time-efficient way to produce films, with a large amount of creative control.
