3G Studios has announced XomB (“zombie”), a new game filled with the undead rampaging around feudal Asia.
Nice bit of a scenery change, at least.
Players will find themselves “thrown into the middle of a war which is already being waged” and must stop the “spreading Darkness” that’s corrupting the landscape.
It’s coming to PC, consoles and handhelds, although a release date hasn’t been given.
Screenshots, a trailer and more information are promised soon.
Press release after the jump.
RENO, Nev. – March 17, 2009 – 3G Studios, Inc. released details of its upcoming next-generation console and PC game which will pit the player against the hordes of a dark and powerful enemy. In XomB (pronounced “Zombie”), the playerwill fight in epic battles, overcoming incredible odds to triumph against an evil that is sweeping their homeland.
“The game is set in a re-imagined version of feudal Asia. The player will find themselves thrown into the middle of a war which is already being waged; one where the spreading Darkness is forcibly corrupting the landscape and reaping the souls of entire populations of innocents,” stated Patric Starr, Designer at 3G’s Tahoe studio.
Todd Imus, Writer for 3G’s Tahoe studio, elaborated: “The dead are being harvested and re-animated in different forms by this incredibly powerful force. The player will learn to alternately fight and control the force as they liberate the slaves of the conquered lands. This tale is very dark and draws heavily upon the unique world of Asian mythology.”
The game is currently being developed for PC, next-generation consoles, and select handheld devices. Nameplates are available at: http://www.3gstudiosinc.com/xomb. More details and assets will be released in the coming weeks.
