The lights are on
Players take on the role of James Lee Quartermain in Painkiller: Hell and Damnation developer The Farm 51’s newest title. The first-person shooter places you in the shoes of the adventurer as he escorts Jennifer Goodwin, an US agent and past colleague, to an Egyptian temple to dig up an ancient artifact.
As Quartermain explains in the video below, his great-grandfather wasn’t a liar when he brought up stories about ancient beasts and spirits – and players will run into them often on their way to collect the Heart of Atlantis before the Nazis or Russians can. The game will take players to other locales aside from dusty Egypt, each protected by a supernatural guardian.
"Deadfall Adventures marries the ethos of the Saturday morning matinee with the summer blockbuster to create an original adventure which will grip players from start to finish," says Nordic managing director Klemens Kreuzer. "We're putting players into the heart of the action, just as they’d dreamed as children, staring at their heroes on the silver screen. It's fantastic to be working on Deadfall Adventures with The Farm 51 from the roots up; it’s going to be an exciting summer."
Deadfall releases on July 30 for both Xbox 360 and PC.
Looks legit enough, I just wish it was releasing for PS3.
I mostly think that this will be an average game. Best to hope for a diamond in the rough.
Very unimpressive trailer. Let's hope they can make something better for the final product.
This narrator sounds like a complete idiot.
Sounds fun! I did enjoy the trailer.
The voice-over is a bit....90's action movie trailer and the music sounds like it is pulling from the Uncharted Series.
From a story point of view I'm curious as to whether James Lee Quartermain is in any way related to the character of Alan Quartermain from H. Rider Haggard's 1885 novel King Solomon's Mines - or if that is just them hoping no one had heard of the name before.
very intrigued by this now!
His name was a big let down.
