LucasArts Presents: Fracture
“The setting is the future, circa 2161. We find ourselves in a dried out San Francisco Bay, under the Golden Gate Bridge, in pitched battle between the so-called Atlantic Alliance–a consortium of eastern American states and several European nations–and the Republic of Pacifica, a teaming of western American states and several Asian nations.”
This is the setting for LucasArts’ new first-person shooter called Fracture. If you watch the video below, you’ll see that earth-deformation is a big deal in this game. Lob an ground-grenade, and the ground wells up in waves, or a menhir shudders up into the sky. Or bits of blast dirt fling themselves about.
This makes for an interesting idea. But being a glass-is-half-empty kind of guy, I’ll wait for more coverage before making up MY mind. Oh yeah – this game is coming out for the PS3 and 360 sometime in 2008.
[edit by Gary] I thought you guys might be interested in seeing some gameplay footage of Fracture. It looks pretty cool and it puts some of the crazy weapons in Ratchet & Clank to shame. One to keep an eye on.
