Deadfall Adventures from the creators of Painkiller.
Ever wondered what Uncharted would be like if it became an FPS created by the team behind brutal FPS series Painkiller? Well, imagine no more as Nordic Games has announced Deadfall Adventures.
Previously revealed as Adventurer, Deadfall promises to blend first-person shooting with puzzle solving and exploration in a globe-trotting adventure.
Set in 1938, players take control of James Lee Quatermain – a man with many talents – and must escort Jennifer Goodwin, a US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple complex in order to retrieve an ancient artefact - The Heart of Atlantis.
Things don't quite go according to plan and Quatermain finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic and the steaming jungles of Guatemala.
Developed by Farm 51 using Unreal Engine 3, we're promised "one of the most jaw-dropping spectacles this generation has enjoyed".
"Deadfall Adventures marries the ethos of the Saturday morning matinee with the Summer blockbuster to create an original adventure which will grip players from start to finish," said Klemens Kreuzer, managing director at Nordic Games. "We're putting players into the heart of the action, just as they'd dreamed as children, staring at their heroes on the silver screen. It's fantastic to be working on Deadfall Adventures with The Farm 51 from the roots up; it's going to be an exciting summer."
Despite its obvious inspiration from PlayStation series Uncharted, the game's only coming to Xbox 360 and PC – a release date is confirmed for July 30.
