E3: Mindjack announced

Square Enix et Feelplus have announced MindJack, an online action-shooter which will be available in October on Xbox 360 and PS3. Press release and trailer inside.

Press release:


Square Enix unveiled today an all-new action online shooter titled Mindjack. Being developed by acclaimed Japanese developer feelplus, MINDJACK will be available this October for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

With this unique action shooter set in 2031, Square Enix continues to expand its portfolio of video games across a wide variety of genres. Drawing upon the graphics and storytelling mastery of both Square Enix and feelplus, Mindjack offers a distinctive experience that throws players into a revolutionary playing field where an engaging solo campaign transitions seamlessly to thrilling, cooperative multiplayer gameplay.

Story:
A new era. Sophisticated and complex technologies are now contributing to the advancements of mankind. However, the world’s governments are crumbling, new corrupt powers arise and conspiracies proliferate. The truth behind the proscribed technology could destroy the very core of humanity. Join a rogue team of agents as they fight for survival and entangle themselves deeper into the mystery.

Mindjack offers a unique online experience. Enter a revolutionary playing field upon which an engaging solo campaign transitions seamlessly to thrilling cooperative play. Expand your mind’s reach by “hacking” into enemies, vehicles or civilians and enjoy the freedom to control almost any character. Each bystander becomes an active combatant in this new urban warfare.

Your “state of mind” is your only limitation!

Features:
• Assume the role of a Mind Hacker hacking into and controlling the minds of enemies to turn the tide of battle.
• Aquire XP to expand your hacker’s Arts abilities. Increase a character’s strength or improve your hit-rate – players can strategize according to their combat style.
• Hack or be hacked! Players can slowly alter their gaming universe – or have it altered by other online players – one hack at a time.
• Utilize futuristic weapons and real fighting techniques, like Krav Maga, in your virtual playground.

See this has great character design but the voice acting just ruins it.

"see these agent Jim" wth ? kind of reminds me of something like Time Crisis or House of the dead, can't take it seriously.

This E3 is starting to deliver more and more, and it should get even better with Sony and Nintendo's conference, especially Nintendo's. Sakaguchi is suppose to be there with Last Story, I think.

It's like everyone, all the publishers and developers, had a strategy session and a decision was made that third person shooter/melee combat hybrids were the way to go, and we are seeing the fruits of their decision with Vanquish, Devil's Third, Metal Gear Solid Rising, Mindjack, and I believe there are others still :P

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (5 Hours ago)
