Blackwater: New Kinect Game Announced
505 Games have announced a new Kinect game: Blackwater.
Blackwater reinvents the modern combat shooter genre by giving players the ability to completely control the gameplay experience using a traditional controller or Kinect for Xbox 360’s controller-free abilities, introducing an unprecedented level of immersion to the FPS genre.
“This game and its immersive Kinect-based approach will give players the chance to experience what it is like to be on a Blackwater team on a mission without being dropped into a real combat situation,” said Prince.
“The Blackwater team is comprised of an amazing group of individuals and we’re proud to work with them to create a video game that showcases their talent and courage,” said Ian Howe, President, 505 Games. “Being able to get the controller out of player’s hands with Kinect and have them on the ground and immersed in the experience will give them a glimpse of what it takes to be a member of an elite fighting force.”
Based on a fictional story, the game was developed in conjunction with former members of the Blackwater team to ensure accuracy of moves, gestures and gameplay. The game also features a selection of officially licensed weapons for your soldier to choose from.
