1C Company has announced the development of NecroVisioN: Lost Company, a prequel which features the events that took place before the original NecroVisioN began.

NecroVisioN: Lost Company promises to feature unique levels, character, weapons and gameplay elements, as well as a new main hero that tells the original game story from an opposing perspective.

Players will take on the role of one of the WWI German soldiers that discovers the evil forces unleashed by the war, and starts to fight against them. Eventually they lead soldiers from all the nations gathered on the front through massive battles against zombies and demons.

1C Company is also promising new visual effects, including enhanced depth of field, soft shadows and new shaders with an optimised renderer and data loading system.

NecroVisioN: Lost Company is scheduled for release on PC in Q1 2010.
