The lights are on
The Farm 51 announced its new FPS, Get Even, near the tail end of December, and now the studio has released a teaser trailer for the game. The clip switches between real-life and computer-generated footage, oftentimes making it easy to confuse the two.
The game is being developed for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with the goal of delivering photorealistic visuals. Take a look at the clip below and decide for yourself if they're on the right track.
“As an independent developer, it would be foolish to go head-to-head with the larger companies and create a ‘me too’ knock-off, and frankly we wouldn’t be interested in doing it," says Wojtek Pazdur, CEO of The Farm 51. "We believe that there is still a ton of content and design creativity that has yet to be explored in first-person genre, as well as an audience beyond the warfare player – those are the people we are going for with Get Even.”
In addition to the impressive visual goals, Get Even will feature an array of high-tech weapons to aid characters on their quest for revenge. They include a smartphone with offense-enhancing apps, as well as firearms that allow players to shoot opponents from around the corner. The game allows players to seamlessly invade other players' games during single-player missions, so you won't know whether the enemy you have down your sights (or around the corner) is an actual human or an AI.
The Farm 51 plans to release Get Even in 2015, with digital distribution in mind.

Very interesting idea.
When I actually see it in action I will believe it.
This is horrible PR. I want to know something about the game not just the tech behind it. Im not going to remember this will the billion of other images I see everyday. Give me something to hold onto instead of just hype.
Give these guys some credit! The ambitious gameplay style sounds like fun and they are not a AAA developer and yet still put together a graphical masterpiece like that! I'm impressed and trying to not get anxious about learning more soon, seeing as how I will have to wait for over a year.
Man, what is real? So full of philosophical thingies right now...
Huh... can't say I'm interested. The trailer looks very slick and the graphics depicted are indeed photorealistic, but the concept of the game just doesn't hook me. Honestly, the vibe I'm getting from the game as it's described sounds an awful lot like a Counter Strike, which certainly has a po***r niche, but it's not one I have any interest in exploring further. Still, I can certainly see how what they're going for - if they can deliver mind you - with Get Even would appeal to those who enjoy the genre of hyperrealistic competitive shooters. 2015 is looking good for a lot of people.
I don't know, it was pretty easy to tell what was CG and what was real.
I hate the whole idea of Multiplayer invasions. I really hope it will be an optional thing.
So, Syndicate but with a different name so people will actually ****ing buy it? I'm sold.
Man, with graphics like these, I might actually start getting uncomfortable with shooting people in this game because they look so real.
I like photorealistic textures in games, I use them in oblivion and skyrim and they´re amazing.
Well now after reading this 2014 just got underway & this doesn't come out for a year or more. Not really interested in it only in what's coming out this year.
Kinda cool, I'm not really sure what to think.
