Mindjack gets a release date, a trailer and some images

Square-Enix has finally unveiled the new release date for MindJack, after its recent delay. The game will hit the PAL territories' stores on January 21st, on PS3 and Xbox 360. Till then, here are a new trailer and some new images.

Press Release :


MINDJACK street date announced for PAL territories.

Enter the futuristic world of MINDJACK on the Xbox360 and PS3 on the 21st January 2011 and experience mind bending action like you have never seen before.

Square Enix’s new near-future Third Person Action-Shooter offers a unique gameplay experience where players can hack into a host game as an ally or enemy and then hack into the mind of any soldier, civilian, mechanical bionic creature or weaponry.

Set in AD 2031 when governments no longer govern, MINDJACK features an incredibly immersive storyline at a time when technology has been created that can control minds. But who is in control, what do they want and most importantly, who can you trust?

MINDJACK will be released on the Xbox360 and PS3 on the 21st January 2011.

Features

· Assume the role of a Mind Hacker hacking into and controlling the minds of enemies to turn the tide of battle.
· Acquire 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.

Conceptually this games sounds really cool, too bad it has such a weak visual style. But hey, sounds like a title worth keeping an eye on :)

too be fair, this game doesn't seem that behind of Deus Ex: HR in terms of screenshots. Yhea, I went there.

That last part of the trailer, the only part that looks like a single-player segment and not this Lost Planet 2 co-op/multiplayer bullcrap, has a little of resident evil 4 going.

Interesting concept, but...isn't the whole nazi helm+glowing goggles getup a bit overused?

Shooter.. Don't want !

Stick to RPG's SE, although something tells me SE didn't develop this.

Looks poor...

I think you guys are being a bit harsh here. I agree that it's not a looker but at least it has some sort of ambition to add new gamepaly to the regular shooting.

And Jolli, don't forget that SE owns Eidos, whom i'll assume are responsible for this :)

Turns out its feelplus, I don't think its looks that bad TBH, although I'm not a fan of shooters so its a no go for me anyways.

gotta love the knee jerk reaction; It's not Gears of War, Halo, Call of Duty or God of War so obviously it must suck incredibly hard. Right?

no, but a bad looking game is a bad looking game. way to generalise with a sweeping statement...lmao.
Commented on 2010-11-24 13:17:25
But it's not THAT bad looking. It looks a little bland, but it's not so bad looking as to instantly assume that it's garbage.

it looks about as "good" as quantum theory to me. the chances of this doing well in reviews or sales are rediculously slim. the game has fail written all over it. but then you said you enjoyed conan, so...i dunno. to each his own i guess

i personally wont be touching it tho.
Commented on 2010-11-24 14:23:18
lol reminds of that "black" game just brought to psn, cant recall its full name but fuck me its shit.
Commented on 2010-11-24 15:31:38
I think i am more likely to enjoy games with new ideas over games with high production values, but that's not to say i don't enjoy big games either. Conan did some stuff of it's own, i prefer it over any God of War sequel. Not because it's a better game but because it's a new experience, much unlike the God of War formula which has stayed almost identical over 5 games.

I'm not arguing that this probably won't do especially well sales wise, but then again i don't think that has much bearing on if it will be a fun game. Also, i'm not saying that i think it will be good. All i'm arguing for is not looking at it and deciding that it's crap just because of the visuals and before you at least read an actual review from a trusted reviewer or try a demo.

Yup its Neir all over again, looks shit so it must be right ..
