London, United Kingdom 1/6/2003 Entertainment software publisher NovaLogic Ltd. today announced it had signed the UK distribution rights to HD Interactive’s cyber thriller Devastation™ for the PC.
Since early code was revealed at E3 in Los Angeles and ECTS in London in 2002, Devastation has become one of the most eagerly awaited PC titles of 2003.
Set on post-apocalyptic Earth where survival and ultimate dominance are all that matters, Devastation is an action teamplay oriented first person shooter. Developed by Digitalo and powered by the heavily modified, next generation Unreal® Engine technology, it pits teams of rebelling street fighters, gang leaders, mercenaries and ex-military fighters against overwhelming armies of high-tech corporate troopers.
Fought over 32 massive photorealistic levels based on real-world textures, the game includes 20 single-player and 12 multi-player maps set in four environments. Devastation features incredible Hollywood-style explosions and amazing particle physics including explosive headshots, flowing water, stunning weapon effects, realistic fire, ragdoll deaths and blood. Next generation AI gives enemies micro-behaviour and a heightened awareness that makes them seem almost too real.
A dynamic tactical component allows you to decide how much control to exert over non-player character teammates. Give individual commands or none at all to co-ordinate an eight-person attack or just go in guns blazing!
In the completely interactive environments, everything can be used, destroyed or manipulated. Set traps with garbage or use broken bottles to slash your way to victory!
The choice of 30-plus weapons includes machine guns, swords, handguns, sniper weapons and incredible Rat Drones that allow players to \'become\' weapons.
The objective-based single player campaign calls for special skills including stealth, surveillance, computer hacking and sniping. Go head-to-head, or mix it up with co-operative games in both Arcade and Simulation settings.
"We are delighted to announce the UK rights for Devastation” said Paul Rebhan, Managing Director of NovaLogic Ltd. "This title is another step forward in our commitment to 3rd Party Publishing. We are looking forward to speaking to a number of new developers throughout 2003”.
Devastation will ship on PC CD - ROM across the UK in March 2003.
