505 Games and Russian developer Biart Studio
have unveiled a new third-person shooter with a unique cover system: specifically, everything is covered
with water. Most of the action in Deep Black
takes place underwater, with players navigating the depths with "specialized underwater jet packs with integrated harpoons, mini submersibles and other high tech equipment." But it's not all swimmin' and shootin' -- 505 promises a storyline with "complex science-fiction mystery, espionage, and bio-terror."
is expected to surface in Q1 2011, joining Naughty Bear
as part of 505 Games's growing PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 lineup. Biart Studio is no stranger to games set underwater, having recently released the PSP mini, Reef Aquarium.
