FRACTURE DEMO SHATTERS ITS WAY ONTO XBOX LIVE MARKETPLACE
AND PLAYSTATION NETWORK SEPTEMBER 18TH
LucasArts announced today that they will
release the official demo of their upcoming action game
Fracture on Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network
on Thursday, September 18. The demo will introduce players
to the revolutionary gameplay behind Terrain Deformation,
a key gameplay mechanic that allows for the dynamic creation
of on-the-fly cover and geographic manipulation.
Developed in partnership with Chicago-based
Day 1 Studios, Fracture takes place in the year 2161 in
a United States plagued by disaster. Years of environmental
neglect have split the nation in two and resulted in two
conflicting ways of life. Survivors of the Atlantic Alliance
have turned to cybernetics and technology, while the Pacifican
States in the West have turned to stem cell research and
genetic engineering for a better way of life. These two
conflicting ideologies come to a head in a deadly civil
war for not only the fate of the free world, but also
the future of mankind itself.
Utilize the power of Terrain Deformation
to create cover, solve puzzles and revolutionize battlefield
tactics as you guide Atlantic Alliance soldier Jet Brody
in his quest to quell the Pacifican uprising through an
exciting single player campaign that begins in the now-dried-out
San Francisco bay, and traverses the ravaged country.
When the game ships to retail you will also
be able to test your mettle in over-the-top multiplayer
modes where nonstop action meet Terrain Deformation for
brutal 12-player battles in modes specifically built for
Fracture and TD technology.
Fracture releases for Xbox 360 and PlayStation
3 on October 7, 2008 in North America and on October 10,
2008 in Europe.
