Codemasters announces that the Bodycount Demo is now available on the Xbox Live. PS3 owners should content themselves with this trailer, for the moment.
Press Release :
Tuesday 16th August (12pm UK) – Codemasters® invites Gamers to go ballistic by downloading the Bodycount™ demo from Xbox® LIVE Marketplace today. The demo lets players sample the outrageous and over-the-top arcade gunplay that takes centre stage in the shooter that will make players fall in love with firepower. A new video showing the demo’s explosive firefights is now showing at www.youtube.com/bodycountgame. ;
“Fans should expect a lot of mayhem, a lot of destruction, fun, fast paced arcade action,” said Max Cant, Art Director. “It’s much more of an A-Team experience than some sort of dour, self-obsessed, self-important thing. If you want to have fun, play Bodycount.”
Set in the early stages of Bodycount’s African missions, players will assume the role of a Network Operative dropped into a chaotic warzone, tasked with tracking down a militia warlord responsible for massacring an army unit. Players, equipped with a turbo-charged arsenal of weapons including the G36 SMG, Super 90 Shotgun, grenades and proximity mines, must engage forces from all sides in blistering-paced gun-fights set amongst a shanty town.
Encouraged to be aggressive in play-style and liberal when it comes to pulling the trigger, players will shred their way through destructible cover as they battle class-based AI including medics who revive fallen foes and a powerful Psycho Tank. Players can augment their already powerful weapon set by collecting Intel from downed enemies which can then be exchanged on the fly for devastating explosive rounds, one of the game’s four upgrades, which also include airstrikes and adrenaline shots.
By completing combat chains and performing skill kills like headshots and kills through cover, players can earn extra Intel and will be rewarded with a higher score at the end of the mission. To add extra replayability, stats tracking player performance and an overall grade are issued at the end of the mission. In the game’s Bodycount mode players can replay all completed levels to improve their score.
A demo for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system will follow. Further details on this release, alongside the latest news, screens and videos, will be released at www.facebook.com/bodycountgame and www.twitter.com/bodycountgame. ;
Bodycount is set to fire into retail on August 30th (North America) and September 2nd (EMEA) for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
@KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (3 Hours ago)
i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (4 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (4 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (4 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (4 Hours ago)
tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (4 Hours ago)
