CI Games claims their sci-fi first-person-shooter game; Alien Rage will put the challenge back in the genre. They’ve even released a cinematic trailer for it. We’ll see about that.
The trailer tells the backstory of Alien Rage. It’s all about the hunt for the ultimate power source: promethium. This power source is capable of powering an entire planet, or blowing it to tiny bits of space garbage. It’ll be up to players to make sure it doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. And, naturally, shoot the crap out of everything that comes in their way.
Needless to say players will face armies of Alien scum with one goal, to take you out. And I don’t mean on a date, bru. 14 brutal levels will reveal a number of unique weapons, each with two strategic firing modes. The game is said to include “mega-sized bosses that will push players’ FPS skills to the limit.”
Now even though the cinematic trailer shows off some pretty impressive stuff, what we really want to see is some gameplay. An E3 gameplay trailer was released earlier last month and looks much better than expected. The game might look like a mash up between all the space games we’ve already seen, but to be fair, there’s only so much you can do with space. The gameplay shows the player raking in massive scores as enemies are gunned down by different weapons. So far it seems that you’ll only be able to carry two weapons at a time.
Check out the gameplay footage below and tell us what you make of the game. Do you think it can hold its own against next-gen games taking up the entire spotlight?
Alien Rage will release later this year on PC, PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360.
