Default Singularity: Raven Software’s New Shooter Revealed

http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/18565/...oter-Revealed/

Quote:
The February 2009 issue of Game Informer has revealed Activision’s Singularity, sci-fi shooter being developed by Rave Software, the developer of Quake 4, X-Men Legends and its sequel and the upcoming Wolfenstein and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Game Informer provided the following description:

The devs from Madison are hard at work on this new sci-fi shooter that features mind-bending gameplay that not only has the player jumping through time, but using it as a weapon (let’s see how well an armed enemy does when he’s instantly aged into bones and dust!). Set on a small, unnamed island occupied by the Russians, Cold War tensions raise once again when a U.S. pilot discovers the horrific truth that became of experiments with element E99 in the 1950s.

Singularity will be Raven's first title using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3.

I'd rather these guys be working on a new Jedi Knight game honestly.

It looked a LOT like the new Wolf stuff they were showing off earlier. Only with Russian flags instead of Nazis...

I wasn't too impressed with the stuff they showed in Game Informer.

One of our reviewers is on it. Playing the 360 version. Nothing too damning from him just yet. Says something about aspirations to Bioshock, but I don't know how.

I think it looks sweet.

Regarding Multiplayer:

Quote:
Will Singularity have any multiplayer modes?

Absolutely, for Multiplayer we wanted to provide gamers with something different – more than just the soldiers vs soldiers fighting. We created an all new mode that allows people to play as the Creatures – the enemies you fight in the Single Player, you can now control in MP. Of course for MP we added bonus features for all the enemies, so each one is a fully capable class. And of course the big difference between the teams is that Creatures is all fully 3rd person and Soldiers are the traditional first person. We tried first person with the Creatures, but gameplay wise it's such a smoother nicer experience in 3rd person.

Innovative time-altering mechanics and a great story make Singularity a refreshing action experience that will stand the test of time - unlike those poor Russians we slaughter.

It's the first game I've played in ages that realises first-person shooters can bundle in as much philosophy and as many moral dilemmas as they like, but fundamentally they're still about shooting monsters in the face, and so what it lacks in originality it makes up for in variety, pacing and exuberance.
Pretty good reviews so far.

Here's a trailer on the multiplayer:
