Ubi Soft announces XIII
Ubi Soft has announced a new first-person shooter for the PS2 entitled XIII. The game is based on the comic license from Belgian writer Jean Van Hamme. Also, cel-shaded graphics will be featured in Ubi Soft's game, comparable to title's like Jet Set Radio Future and Auto Modellista. The development team will be using the latest Unreal Engine graphics technology, so we can only hope for high-quality textures and overall atmosphere. The game will feature a four-player multiplayer mode in addition to the single-player mode.
"We are constantly striving to push the gaming envelope, and XIII will create a world so unique and enthralling that gamers will become instantly engaged," said Laurent Detoc, president of Ubi Soft Entertainment. "From the revolutionary first-person cel-shaded animation, Unreal technology, and unique storyline, XIII reaches limits of interactive gameplay never experienced before."
