Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse announced
3DO announced today a new adventure game that is based on the biblical tale of Armageddon. The title will feature heavy, detailed action with style cinematics. Named Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the game puts players in the role of Abaddon, a character that must save the world with the help of three chosen figures: a prostitute, a serial killer, and a corrupt politician. The game contains mature content, including brief nudity, adult themes, and extreme violence. Spanning 18 levels, players will journey through the post-apocalypse of World War III, and into the depths of Hell.
"With intense action and beautiful style, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse combines the abilities of extremely gifted artists, writers, engineers and actors to create a top-notch horror/action game," said Michael Mendheim, vice president and creative director, The 3DO Company. "We're adding a modern, sinister spin on a classic theme, and creating a powerful main character that players will identify with. We're also going all-out with mature content mixed with action and violence of Biblical proportions. This is not your father's videogame -- it's more like The Matrix meets Hellraiser."
Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is scheduled for a fall 2003 release on the Playstation 2.
