"A Sustained Burst Of Arcade Aggression"
City Interactive, the team behind Sniper: Ghost Warrior, have revealed their latest in-house FPS. Alien Fear promises to deliver "visceral, non-stop, run-and-gun action" for PSN and Xbox Live Arcade when it releases later this year, along with many - many - aliens to kill.
Alien Fear is described as a arcade-style first person shooter, wherein players solve the problem of alien invasion through superior firepower and "a sustained burst of arcade aggression." Players assume the role of a highly-trained elite commando on a sabotage mission, with cooperative support announced from the get-go. Unreal Engine 3 will power the visuals, which is said to contain "beautifully composed sci-fi vistas."
There will also be a "buzzsaw." Which we like. Immensely.
Alien Fear is currently in development for Microsoft Xbox Live Arcade and Sony PlayStation Network at City Interactive’s internal Bydgoszcz studio. Additional gameplay details and official release date are set for reveal "in the near future."
