dtp Entertainment AG has announced Red Ocean, a new fps scheduled for release on the PC in February 2006.
First-person shooters on the PC aren't exactly in short supply, but dtp Entertainment AG is hoping to find a place in the FPS market with Red Ocean. The game stars diving instructor and treasure hunter Jack Hard. Mr Hard stumbles upon a secret Russian cold war research station deep under the ocean. He eventually discovers that the research facility is under the control of a terrorist organisation - cue lots of action.
The game's link with the water doesn't stop with its setting - players will also have to make use of water, be it in liquid form (swimming and drowning enemies), as ice, and even as gas as a potent weapon.
Red Ocean is in development at Collision Studios and is scheduled for release in February 2007 under the Anaconda label.
