Helsinki, Finland - March 3, 2005 - Finnish game developer Frozenbyte has unveiled its first PC action game - Preyground. The game brings fresh air to the genre with its explosive action sequences and innovative weapon upgrade system. Preyground also features cutting-edge realistic lighting technology, a thrilling sound environment and a unique top-down perspective that create an epic gaming experience ready to launch in Q3 2005.
Set in the near future, Preyground pits the player against oncoming alien hordes who are invading a colony base. The intriguing storyline takes on epic heights and mission highlights include investigating alien origins, helping in rescue evacuation and setting up defense perimeters. The player gets help from many allies who play an essential part in the overall story.
In Preyground, players get a devastating arsenal of high-tech weaponry with which to dispose of the alien threat. Weapons can be customized with multiple upgrades, maximizing the carnage. Examples include a pinpoint laser that cuts aliens in half and a railgun that fires wall-bouncing bullets - several aliens can be killed with only one shot. Destructible environment allows players to wreak havoc in full scale.
Preyground has been developed using in-house technology that brings the game world alight with visual fireworks. Realistic lighting is an important gameplay feature as well - the monsters react to the lighting in numerous ways, and players can take advantage of that. Clever use of light is also needed when facing brutal boss monsters, who will do anything to eliminate the human race. Preyground's breath-taking atmosphere is further enhanced by a thrilling soundtrack and a realistic sound environment.
Preyground will be released in Q3 2005 for the PC. More information about the game can be found at the official website at http://www.preygroundgame.com/PREYGROUND FEATURES IN SHORT
