News: More fighting in the Vietnam War... this time with zombies! Maybe.
Eidos has announced that they will be bringing Shellshock 2: Blood Trails to the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this holiday season. The game will take place in the jungles of the Vietnam War, but it may not be your typical war game.
From the description Eidos has given, it sounds like zombies will be involved...
At the height of the Vietnam War, a covert ops cargo plane carrying a top-secret consignment known only as ?Whiteknight' is lost over the deepest, uncharted jungles. Special Ops soldiers are immediately dispatched to the scene to retrieve the top secret shipment and one-by-one they disappear without a trace? until one month later, one of them suddenly walks out of the jungle.
Crazed and deranged, something in the jungle had ripped out his humanity, poisoning his soul. Something in the darkness had driven him mad... and followed him out.
"Shellshock 2 is very different to any first person shooter you've seen before; at times it feels more like you're in a horror movie than a game," said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Eidos Game Studios. "Survival takes on a new meaning as you fight against all sides of the conflict: your enemy, your allies and the victims? the casualties of Whiteknight, an enemy that ultimately has no side."
We'll have more soon.
