Area 51 Announced

Stan Winston Studio, home of four-time Academy Award-winning special effects legend Stan Winston, and Midway Games Inc., a leading software industry publisher and developer, have teamed in a development association for Midway's action-adventure videogame tentatively titled, AREA 51. In addition, Stan Winston Productions has secured the exclusive motion picture rights for the project. AREA 51 is currently in development and scheduled to ship in 2004 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube. As a result of the agreement, Stan Winston Studio will serve in a lead creative capacity in the development of the game's main alien enemies. "We are thrilled to work with a creative legend like Stan Winston," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of Marketing, Midway. "Stan will bring a tremendous amount of talent and ingenuity to the creation of AREA 51, which is sure to be a blockbuster title for us." Combining elements of precision sniper attacks and hand-to-hand combat, AREA 51 takes three distinct characters on individual and cooperative missions, in an attempt to unlock the extra-terrestrial mystery behind the Nevada desert locale. AREA 51 is based on a cryptic tale conceived and developed by a professional military sci-fi scriptwriter. To successfully carry out missions, accomplish goals and ultimately complete the game, players must utilize each character's attributes to unleash destruction on aliens while progressing through alien-inspired levels and mysterious settings. This title is not officially proposed to Sony Computer Entertainment America.
