Experience the Fourth Dimension at Atari’s Official TimeShift Website

Next-Generation Shooter Gets Next-Generation Website with Flash 8 Technology

February 10, 2006

Tapping into the future of Internet technology, Atari, Inc. and Saber Interactive have launched the next-generation website for TimeShift, the upcoming four-dimensional shooter that puts time in the hands of the player. TimeShiftGame.com presents game information, screenshots and videos like never before, taking full advantage of Macromedia's cutting-edge Flash 8 technology to offer unprecedented visual effects and interactivity.

In the coming weeks, the official website will delve further into the unique TimeShift experience with developer diaries, weapon and enemy features, screenshots and even interactive videos that convey the many ways time can be manipulated to the player's advantage.

Scheduled for release this spring for Windows and Xbox 360TM video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, TimeShift allows players to slow, stop and reverse the flow of time as Colonel Michael Swift, a recently retired test pilot thrust into an alternate history after accepting an offer from the U.S. government to evaluate experimental time-control devices. TimeShift combines stunning visuals with next-generation gameplay to deliver the ultimate first-person shooter experience.
