PARIS - Oct. 8, 2007 - Vivendi Games Mobile, a division of Vivendi Games, today announced it will launch its upcoming Urban Attack game, an original and inventive first-person-shooter (FPS), in Europe and North America this holiday season. The game uses state-of-the-art technologies to push the limitations of most FPS that have been brought to mobile previously, incorporating vector graphics to enable the game to run in 3D across all handset tiers.
"We are excited to unveil Urban Attack this holiday season, after investing more than 20 months of research and development into making this the most visionary, action-packed FPS made for mobile that the industry has seen," said Paul Maglione, president of Vivendi Games Mobile. "FPS enthusiasts as well as more casual gamers will undoubtedly find the intense graphics and meticulous attention to detail impressive and will quickly find themselves engaged with the storyline and gameplay."
"We wanted to develop a fast paced, original mobile game, that retains the look and feel of a more traditional shooter while being designed to function across hundreds of handsets, instead of a limited number of 3D devices," said Vincent Dondaine, producer of Urban Attack, Vivendi Games Mobile. "Players will enjoy the easy to use targeting system which is so smooth it quickly becomes second nature. This title overcomes the typical challenges a game of this type for mobile presents, and we hope it proves to be a successful model for mobile games moving forward."
The Urban Attack game is set in 2046, in the years following the third war in the Ukraine. A highly organized Russian Mafia is now in control of the Russian government. The main character, Yuri, is a 17-year-old agent in the UCCK network of technology and psy-ops experts set up by the Russian Mafia to operate covertly in the United States. The reason for the creation of the UCCK is unknown as are the details of Yuri's past. Yuri speaks with a perfect New England accent; has a phenomenal aptitude for understanding sophisticated weaponry and knows that any attempt to discover the truth will be a very dangerous pursuit.
