Publisher Ignition Entertainment and developer Access Games (Spy Fiction) have announced they will be releasing Deadly Premonition on the Xbox 360 in March 2010.
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 Morgan. Agent Morgan has travelled to the rural town of Greenvale to investigate a brutal murder. Naturally, the sleepy town of Greenvale holds a few supernatural secrets that want to prevent Agent Morgan from finding out the truth...
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. Suspenseful action sequences will force players to make strategic moves, gliding by enemies in the shadows or engaging them with long-range weapons or hand-to-hand melee combat. 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.
?Ignition Entertainment has done an incredible job finding and targeting each game's primary audience and we could not be more excited to team up with them to publish Deadly Premonition,? said Hidetaka Suehiro, Director, Access Games. ?We've developed the graphic styling and game play of Deadly Premonition to uniquely trigger the suspenseful emotions in every player. We promise an astounding ending if you can meet the challenge to solve the mystery and make it there!?
Ignition has opened the game's website at DeadlyPremonition.com
and it's filled to the brim with interesting information about the game including a developer diary and a dossier on each of the game's characters. There's also a trailer that includes bleeding trees, angry villagers, something that resembles a Jawa, possessed housewives and an upside down peace symbol (which was actually the insignia of the Nazi's 4th Panzer Division in World War II). It's definitely worth checking out.
