Unreal Engine 3-based Undertow coming to XBLA

After the big budget (and disappointing sales) of Advent Rising, Chair Entertainment has set its sights on the much more manageable Xbox Live Arcade platform with their latest project, Undertow. Like RoboBlitz (oh, and Gears of War), Undertow uses Unreal Engine 3 to bring the pretty. The game will feature a 15-level single player and co-op campaign and two multiplayer modes for up to 16 players, but how does it play? IGN does their best Hollywood pitch, describing it as "Geometry Wars meets Battlefield," 3D graphics with 2D gameplay. Undertow is scheduled to be released on Xbox Live this summer ... if the certification gremlins don't get in the way.
