Glendale, CA – November 10th, 2009 – In early 2010, Ignition Entertainment Ltd., a UTV Enterprise, a worldwide publisher and developer of videogames is working in conjunction with Marvelous Entertainment to give gamers a glimpse into Deadly Premonition, a third-person survival horror action game releasing in North America on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

Deadly Premonition, developed by Access Games, is a third-person survival horror action game which puts players in the role of the intuitive FBI Agent Francis York Morgan. In the process of investigating a murder, players will examine a series of interlocking mysteries in a remote rural town and will encounter an array of complex characters pivotal to the unraveling of the storyline’s mystery.

From the unparalleled atmosphere, music and mysterious storyline to driving vehicles and exploring the entire town, Deadly Premonition will offer players a unique and haunting interactive gaming experience unlike any other.

    What’s that other game? Besides Alan Wake I mean. Isn’t it called something like ‘Rainy Woods’?

    Alan Wake, Rainy Woods, Deadly Premonition, samey samey same…I keed, I keed :D Moar survival horror on proper consoles is what I say.

    @ Splattered House – maybe it’ll be a region free X360 game, we can only hope.

    Good grief, it’s been so long I’d completely forgotten about Rainy Woods.

    Regardless, they’ve improved the tech a lot since the original trailers but it still looks a bit pony. It’s like they’ve tried to combine Silent Hill and Alan Wake and ended up with… neither.

    Lol that Rainy Woods is just a Twin Peaks rip-off… Definitely the same game, looks cool.

    Meh – Twin Peaks meets Alan Wake via Silent Hill. One to miss, IMHO.
