Outland Being Developed by Housemarque
With just a couple days to go before PAX, Ubisoft has taken the wraps off Outland, which is scheduled to make its debut this weekend (via IGN).
As it turns out, the upcoming game has nothing to do with the sci-fi film of the same name. Instead, it will be a downloadable platformer utilizing a color switching mechanic similar to that which is found in Ikaruga.
As in Treasures classic shooter, it will be possible to switch between light and dark forms to avoid enemy attacks. In addition, light forms can only hurt dark foes, and vice versa.
The game is being developed by Housemarque, which is also the studio behind Super Stardust HD and the upcoming Dead Nation. Outland will be out on Xbox Live Arcade next year.
