Interstellar Marines | Annonce

Project IM devient Interstellar Marines

Zero Point Software nous signale que Project IM vient d'être renommé en Interstellar Marines. Les développeurs s'imaginent concevoir un gameplay non linéaire mélangeant tactical-shooter, arcade et RPG. Ce premier épisode d'une grande trilogie (ahah) sera animé par l'Unreal Engine 3.

Pour prouver leur bonne volonté, et surtout tenter de trouver un éditeur, les gars de Zero Point ont monté deux nouvelles vidéos précalculées : un gros trailer et un petit teaser.
