505 Games snaffles Deep Black
505 Games has announced that it will publish underwater sci-fi shooter Deep Black, developed by the Russian based Biart Studio.
Deep Black is a third-person action game which revolves around a sci-fi mystery, encompassing espionage and bio-terror.
The hook is that it’s set underwater, with the murky depths traversable by a number of means including jet-packs (with built-in harpoons, sounds pretty funky) and mini-subs (with perhaps a bit more than harpoons built-in).
The developer reckons players will need to learn new skills to be able to fight enemies underwater, with realistic physics employed for the beneath-the-waves environments. You’ll also come across enemy bases down there, too.
Whether a shooter that’s almost entirely set underwater will work is a debatable point. Often, the swimming sections of shooters can be the most annoying levels. But obviously, it’s far too early to judge yet, and Biart Studio has to be commended for at least trying something different.
Deep Black will be out on the Xbox 360 and PS3 in the first quarter of 2011. In the meantime, the closest you’ll get to underwater bio-terror is when you fart in the bath.
