DeNA announced today the first title from subsidiary studio Scattered Entertainment in Stockholm, Sweden. The Drowning will be a console-quality first-person-shooter planned for iOS devices in early 2013. Scattered's new title is centered around surviving in a post-apocalyptic world and will be free-to-play.
We've been at the forefront of innovation in free-to-play mobile games since the beginning, and we're changing the definition of the space once again with The Drowning, said ngmoco CEO Clive Downie. We can't wait to give players a quality, hardcore FPS experience for their mobile devices.
Scattered Entertainment's vision is to bring the type of deep, high-quality and immersive games normally only experienced on PC and consoles, to the convenient, powerful modern mobile device, said Cousins. The Drowning combines the play-patterns and touch-screen specific control systems expected of tablet and smartphone games with unmatched console-quality graphics, innovative skill-based gameplay and a rich, expansive fictional world.
