LONDON, UK (9 September 2004) - GMX Media are announcing that they will be publishing the new action packed FPS title HELLFORCES for 2005, licensed by Buka Entertainment.

"HELLFORCES is a no-nonsense FPS title that will offer new levels of wanton destruction and challenging gameplay that's designed with entertainment in mind." commented COO for GMX Media Eugene Perry. "This title is already looking stunning and certain that its uncompromising gameplay and storyline will be a key factor for its success in 2005."

"Hellforces is a technologically sophisticated shooter with a thrilling storyline and attractive graphical representation, which features intensive action and a good deal of humor." added PR and Marketing manager for Buka Julia Gribonosova. "The player will have to summon up all his deductive and reaction skills revealing the Satanic plot against humanity. And what would you do if your girl-friend sold her soul to a stranger?"

The story so far...

Experimenting with alternative power sources, the biophysicist Henry Alfred Cole has found a way to extract the soul from a human body and use the soul as a power source. The soulless bodies however turned into zombies. Hellish creatures started filling them to change dramatically the essence of the host body.

A daemon from a parallel world, Baphomet, installed himself in one soulless body and soon founded the cult of Lucifer. The aim of this cult was to open the gate for Lucifer to come into the humans' world. The number of followers of the cult increased at a catastrophic rate; Satanists all around the world were joining their ranks.

Our hero is concerned with the fate of his missing friend, who had had a meeting with the leader of a satanic sect just a day before his disappearance. His persistent investigations become a threat to the Satan worshippers and Satanists start hunting after him. The creepy truth about the fate of his friend will reveal itself in the mansion of the biophysicist...

Save the earth from the heresy and the minions of Lucifer!
