Extermination ships for PS2
Developed specifically for the Playstation 2, Sony has been announced today the release of action/adventure game Extermination. Developed by Deep Space Inc., makers of such games as MegaMan, Ghouls and Ghosts, and TOMBA!, Extermination will combine the features of a strategy game and the action filled style known to the genre. Players must travel through the game in an attempt to outlast and defeat a deadly mutant virus. Extermination incorporates the skilled work of weapons expert Ichiro Nagata, who is licensed for training in the FBI and SWAT team. With the ability to customize your weaponry, Nagata has brought very valuable knowledge in creating this game. Players will be able to choose from such upgrades as a tactical grip, grenade launcher, flame-thrower, shotgun unit, zoom and night scope among many others.
"Extermination utilizes the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system's phenomenal power to fill environments with rich textures, fluidly animated creatures, unique gameplay elements and pulse-heightening music. Gamers will certainly appreciate the spectacular visual scenes, sophisticated weaponry and intense action," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "Extermination is like a suspenseful action movie that is going to test the mettle of even the most skilled player with its treacherous mutant creatures, plot twists, and terrifying gameplay."
Extermination sets the stage for the mission to save mankind from a virus that infects both organic and inorganic objects. Playing as U.S. Special Forces Marines RECON team "Red Light" member Dennis Riley, players battle unforgiving blizzards and intense pressure situations on a mission through a military base only to discover this biological disaster. Also included in the game is a very in-depth cinematic cut-scene structure that portrays the story as it unfolds. Hopefully, Extermination will bring innovation to the genre for the PS2.
