Parabellum: A brand new tactical FPS

Parabellum: A brand new tactical FPS

Acony Games, a german independant game studio is preparing a tactical FPS powered by Unreal Engine 3!
Their lovely baby is named Parabellum, and is about a counter terrorist style gaming.
"Parabellum draws the player into a likely scenario of nuclear terror in New York City. An extremist group known as “Black November” is holding the entire city hostage by threatening to detonate a thermonuclear bomb. Their condition is the withdrawal of all United States military forces from the middle east. If this condition will not be fulfilled within 10 days, Black November will detonate the 20 Megaton nuclear warhead. According to intelligence information, the bomb could be hidden almost anywhere in NYC."
The good news is that they promised the biggest multiplayer Environment ever created: The whole city!
The game is scheduled for PC, Xbox360 and PS3 on the second half of 2007.

Yet another FPS ..... looks ok and I hope they can pull off what they promised for Multiplier ...

they're claiming to do the whole city of new york?

honestly, I'd prefer a smaller area with more detail, cuz this game is probably gonna suck. I'll gladly eat crow if I have to, but I probably won't, true crime proved that this is much harder to do well than, it seems, anyone is capable of.

come on...this is getting redicilous. What does this FPS have that all the other ones don't...

I bet the bomb is hidden in Optimus's bedroom.
FPS or not, it deserves a chance.

""PARABELLUM draws the player into a likely scenario of nuclear terror in New York City. "

Likely? heheh.

Hopefully it'll be good but I guess it'll be yet another FPS.

ill try it for sure

That story definetly sounds frightening when you consider the possibility of it actually happening. Let's not give terrorists any ideas that they haven't already thought of. Geesh...........

Does sound scary.
The graphical art direction is slightly off for me, but still very good.

Yeah, whats with it and these FPS, don't any of these developers have any imagination at all.

Come on, let's try something new i.e. Dead Rising, Kameo and err..... someone know anything else other than racing and sports?

Man this machine is the reincarnation of the Xbox 1 (no ideas and just FPS)

EDIT: Ok there were some ideas on the Xbox 1, but it didn't out way the FPS in the slightest

It looks quite good, I like the weapon model to when they are in game.

They are german, so it isn't close to home for them, and they don't care.

Oh they have probably thought of much worse.

Game looks pretty cool, and i love tactical shooters so I hope this turns out good.

so far it has a "been there, done that"-feel to it. hard to judge from the little info we have.
but so far, so meh...:)

if, however they pull the wholecity-thing off using u3`s streaming feature. (NO load screens!) then it could be interesting in multiplayer. wait and see i guess ^_^
Commented on 2006-08-16 18:37:38
Didn't expect to see another FPS for a long time on the 360.

T^_^T

I hope there is more players in multiplayer than usual 8 or 16 :D

you know im sick and f*cking tired of comments basically blaming the 360 for having so many FPS's ... it's not microsoft nor the 360's fault that developers go with FPS's ... its the developers problems ... so if anything cuss the studios not the machine...

Yes there should be more original games out their... but the fact is besides for nintendo... companys seem to be too afraid to try anything ... new...

I'd love to see a Sims for the 360 ... but apparently thats too much to ask for from EA... so far the only really offshoot game is Viva Pinata which is kinda kiddy but i might actually get it just so me and my girlfriend have something to f*ck around with together... and i blame EA and the other studios not microsoft because i really sincerly DOUBT microsoft is sitting their chanting "WE WANT FPS'S"

Oh and btw i cant wait for alan wake to come out and fable 2 :)

In actuality, we haven't had many FPS' on the 360. We have CoD2 2 which is brilliant, but then we have averageness of PDZ, Battlefield and possibly Far Cry.

Condemned, you cannot class in the same genre just because of it's viewpoint, it is far more. Oblivion is not an FPS, GRAW isn't an FPS, etc. I actually want another FPS, but there aren't many to choose from.

Wasn't Black November the group that held the Israeli hostages at Munich? Anyway, this game has a great plot. Screenshots look good now, but I'm sure will look much better closer to release.
