UK-based Vulcan Software has announced that it's working on Hybrid, a futuristic first-person shooter in which players will assume the role of Lieutenant Marek Hale of the resource and cargo ship Navasota. At the end of a six-month voyage to a mining facility on one of Neptune's moons, Hale awakes to the sound of ship alarms, explosions, and screaming. The Navasota, it seems, has been intercepted by an alien vessel of unknown origin, and its self destruct sequence has been initiated.
"We are very excited about the development of Hybrid," said Vulcan director Paul Carrington. "Having invested heavily in our own 3D technology, we are anxious to show the world a new breed of FPS, in which stunning 3D visuals provide more than a mere backdrop to the gameplay by offering extensive interactive possibilities. There will be countless ways to kill, evade, or fool the enemy characters, who possess AI systems that allow them to use the interactivity of the environments to their own advantage."
Players will have to single-handedly take on the alien hybrid race, and as they progress through the game, they'll take in a number of different locales, ranging from the interior of the Navasota to the surface of the Neptunian moon Nereid. No release date or publisher has been announced for Hybrid at this time, but for more information, you might like to check out the official Vulcan Software Web site.
