Well here’s an interesting title entering the exclusivity wars, Zen studios announced earlier via the Playstaion blog that they were super excited to be able to bring the punisher to PSN. Here’s what they had to say.
“We’re calling the game The Punisher: No Mercy because that’s exactly what it is – merciless. For the first time on consoles, you’ll see the Marvel Universe through a first-person perspective in some intense arena-based multiplayer action. Also, the game is being built from the ground up with some serious tech – yes, we are using the Unreal Engine 3 (the ultimate FPS engine) for this exclusive PSN release. Our main focus is to create an awesome online multiplayer experience with the style and grit from the Punisher’s world, complete with characters like Jigsaw, Bushwacker, Barracuda and even Silver Sable (been reading War Journal lately?â€¦).
What does this mean for you gamers? You better get ready to kick some serious #$% with the first ever first-person shooter developed exclusively for PSN. Stay tuned for more details as they become available at www.punishernomercy.com.”
Well I can’t say it doesn’t sound exciting, it’s really about time we got a decent marvel game. But I’m not getting my hopes too high yet, 90% of the shooters made with the unreal 3 engine have been nothing but average, and seeming as this is just an announcement of the game, I’ll be putting my hopes back on the shelf till I see some real evidence of the above claims.
