Greg Hastings Pro Paintball Coming To XboxIt has been rumored for some time that a game was coming out for the XBox that would revolve around paintball. Most recently, Facefull Magazine interviewed Greg Hastings about such a game, a game that would be called "Greg Hastings Pro Paintball". What weve gathered from around the net is who is making it, how it will be played, and when it will be out. Here are some bits of information we were able to get: The game is being developed by WXP out of Seattle, Washington. WXPs clients include Walt Disney Imagineering, Sierra Studios, and nVidia. The game will be distributed by Activision. The game will be in a speedball/airball format where there are real tournaments ala NPPL/PSP style. There will be licenced products, so youll see WGP Autocockers, DM4s, etc. The release date is set for either the 5th of November or the day after Thanksgiving. The game will support Xbox Live so you and your friends or total strangers can battle it out over the net. The fields will not be exactly like, but will resemble many popular fields such as SC Village, Skirmish, etc. There will be a mode where you will have to work your way up from local tournaments to the pros where you play teams like Dynasty, Infamous, Naughty Dogs, Avalanche, and so on. It will have draftable teams. The difference between this game and any other First Person Shooter is the entire way the game is played. You only have one life in Greg Hastings Pro Paintball before you lose, and therefore you cant just run up to the other team as you would in some other game, such as Halo, and get shot multiple times til youre "out". So, basically, its one hit and youre out. There is word saying that it will have woods games, and also word saying that it will not. We cant confirm this at this point.
