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.
