Konami bringing Battle: Los Angeles to PSN
Movie tie-in games are nothing new, but they are often full-retail disc releases. Not the case for Battle: Los Angeles, which is set to invade the Playstation Store. This first-person shooter mirrors the plot of the movie and features marines fighting against aliens. Everything announced so far seems little different than any other single-player FPS, including the use of Havoc technology and destructible environments. Release date and price have yet to be announced, and no screenshots have been released.
Here is an excerpt from the official press release:
Developed by Saber Interactive and powered by the Saber 3D Engine, Battle: Los Angeles is a high-end fast and frantic first-person shooter game that will take players through a single player campaign that mirrors the upcoming feature film. Players will assume the role of a Marine fighting against a worldwide alien invasion that has the city of Los Angeles as the major battleground and focal point for the game. Players will battle unique and varied enemies, using an arsenal of weapons throughout the game like an assault rifle, sniper rifle, rocket launcher, frag grenades, and a turret gun as they navigate the streets of Los Angeles avoiding fierce and relentless attacks. Aside from high-caliber fire fighting combat, destructible environments have been included using the Havok Destruction Module, which will allow players to destroy scaffolding structures, vehicles and overpasses to eliminate enemy forces. With unlockable content, trophy support, and 5.1 surround sound, Battle: Los Angeles will pull players deep into the heart of the battle to save mankind.
