We brought you news of a rumored Battle: Los Angeles game being in the works at Saber Interactive just yesterday. But now we can pretty much confirm that particular game is real, with the first screenshots reaching us courtesy of a Russian website where the title is being localized. Again, the abrupt arrival of the game suggests it's a download-only title, although without word from Konami we can't be sure.
So, it's pretty obvious the game is an FPS, with two shots featuring the player manning a turret and a rocket launcher. Another shot reveals the game's adversaries, who haven't even featured properly in the film's marketing yet. They're an odd blend of machinery, flesh and almost insect-like appendages, with their weapons seemingly grafted to their arms.
It actually looks pretty good, which is surprising when you consider it's received no marketing whatsoever. Not even a cursory announcement. 1UP claim the Russian website confirm the protagonist to be the film's Staff Sergeant Michael Nantz, played by Aaron Eckhart. It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out. Saber Interactive - if their involvement is to be believed - are a capable studio, and the film has a lot of potential in the videogame space. We'll keep our eyes open for this one. [OnPause]
