Activision announces that Gray Matter Studios is currently developing a new first-person action game.
Activision announced today that development has begun on Trinity, a new first-person action game for the PC and Xbox platforms. Gray Matter Studios, the creator of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, is developing the PC version, while Vicarious Visions, which is known for porting Jedi Knight II to the Xbox and GameCube, will be handling the development of the game for the Xbox. The game is set in New Orleans in the year 2013, when a virulent plague is sweeping across the city. New Orleans' only hope to find the source of the virus and stop it from spreading further is the Nightstalker, a biologically enhanced hero who possesses superhuman powers. At the Nightstalker's disposal are weapons ranging from pistols and shotguns to grenade launchers and sniper rifles.
Additionally, Trinity includes a feature called "FlashTime" that will allow players to dodge enemies or execute special attacks. "Trinity brings an all new intensity and cinematic quality to the first-person action genre," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "Run-and-gun gameplay takes on a whole new dimension when players can warp around the map in the blink of an eye, see through walls, and tackle enemies with deadly acrobatic maneuvers."
Activision expects Trinity to ship in 2004, and it will be showing off the game at this year's E3. Tune in to GameSpot's E3 coverage for further updates on the game.
