U.S.S. AntarcticaA new Xbox title announcement seems to have been overlooked. Darkworks the makers of Alone in the Dark IV introduces USS Antarctica, an epic action-adventure trilogy mixing fear and romance in a unique science-fiction and fantasy setting.
In USS the player will be in charge of two heroes and cooperative action will be at the heart of the adventure to create a new genre that Darkworks refers to as "Team Survival".
USS Antarctica trilogy will add a new touch to the horror-survival genre by thrusting the player right into a disaster movie. The player will spend most of his time experiencing situations of extreme stress, emergency and even panic. The two heroes will have to fight to survive the horror and deal with fearsome enemies. U.As experience will focuses on the dramatic dimension of the adventure and translates it into gameplay.
Darkworks looks to make the first ever game which brings together two very popular genres: horror-survival and tactical-espionage. The fun of shooting and the fear specific to survival combined with sophisticated espionage and the suspense of stealth action.
