505 GAMES PLAYS GOD WITH MORPHX
29 March 2010, Milton Keynes – Global games publisher, 505 Games today announces the release of upcoming 3rd person action adventure, MorphX. Developed by Moscow based Buka Entertainment, MorphX will ask players to question their will to survive an alien invasion, as well as their own humanity, when it is unleashed on Xbox 360® on 21st May 2010.
In a world where humans are forced to scurry in the ruined subways and sewers of a futuristic Moscow devastated by attempted alien genocide, MorphX tells the story of the human resistance against their newly imposed masters. As well as guns, grenades and other more traditional weaponry, players will be able to absorb the DNA of fallen enemies to assimilate superior alien abilities and technologies, at the cost of their humanity.
“MorphX gives players the choice of remaining purely human or taking on some characteristics of the enemy for a very different gaming experience,” commented Ralph Pitt-Stanley, Commercial Director, 505 Games. “In other words, if you get tired of falling foul of a plasma projector claw, you can always opt to grow one of your own in retaliation!”
Played from a 3rd person perspective, the events of MorphX unfold in a fully realised 3D representation of the Russian capital, where players must fight through a demolished Red Square and on the steps of a battle scarred Kremlin. Boss battles will feature building-sized adversaries that will require as much wit as physical dexterity to overcome and emerge victorious.
MorphX will be published by 505 Games, exclusively for Xbox 360 on 21, May 2010.
things will go digital, as much as i fight it, i can see it happening by PS6. but streaming seems like a novel way to get around BC and nothing more. (1 minute ago)
especially with the stonger focus on bigger resolutions. we can barely stream 720p with reasonable input lag, how do you expect them to do it 4k or hell, 8k? (2 minutes ago)
@droezelke: given there seems to be a lack of development in that area recently, with most forerunners giving up entirely. i doubt that's the future (4 minutes ago)
You do have to wonder how it would have looked right now if GTAO hadn't been that insane succes. Would've we had more Rockstar games on current gen now? I think so (5 minutes ago)
@droezelke: Streaming in 8k... maybe (30 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: I don't believe there will be a PS6. By that time I suspect it will become a streaming service. (47 minutes ago)
the problem we have as fans of the single player component is that R* have a ridiculously popular online element. one i imagine it's difficult for them to walk away from to make a new mainline GTA (56 minutes ago)
