Things have been fairly quiet on the Bodycount
front of recent months. The last that we saw of the spiritual successor to Black
was a trailer
back in December. As a quick reminder, here's a synopsis of the game:
Bodycount rips apart the first person shooter as genre-defining gunplay comes alive in a balletic orgy of bullets and destruction.
Experience the intense thrill of close-quarters combat in a shreddable world as Bodycount blasts outrageous fire-fights and ferocious action from both barrels. Become a powerful combat asset green-lighted to eliminate enemies known only as ‘Targets’ on behalf of the ‘Network’, ensnared in a clandestine global power struggle that rages away from the headlines and under the cover of conventional war zones.
This exhilarating shooter drops players into chaotic areas of operations equipped with a mouth-watering selection of contemporary weapons to tear through environments and enemies, chaining kills, earning power ups and building up a bullet meter to unleash devastating air strikes on enemies.
Complimented by co-operative online play and multiplayer modes, Bodycount will set new standards for spectacular, visceral gun play and put the fun back into the FPS.
Codemasters hasn't forgotten about the title though, and the developer has released a few new screenshots with a distinct theme. Everybody loves explosions, right?Bodycount
is set to be released in Summer 2011.
