Sony Computer Entertainment of America today shipped Siren, their latest survival-horror title. With 10 playable characters and 78 missions, Siren's story occurs over the time span of three days. Much like Tarantino's cinematic masterpiece Pulp Fiction, the missions do not occur in chronological order, leaving players to make sense of the events that occur. Even more mysterious is the voice acting, which features British accents dubbed onto Asian models.
Providing an innovative take on survival horror, Siren's sightjack system allows players to see through the eyes of nearby enemies. Sightjacking can be used to gather clues, advance the story, and determine enemy placement. Players are warned though, "in this world of unspeakable evil and horrific visions, this extraordinary observational power could be more of a curse than a blessing." What does that even mean? You'll have to play to find out.
Siren is rated "M" for Mature, and carries an MSRP of $39.99.
