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.
