Haze Script Over 1,000 Pages Long
Free Radical has been pretty good about keeping the gaming public informed when it comes to Haze. It suffered a major delay early on, but the developers were quick to talk more about the reasons behind that delay, and they now say the game is on track. This being the case, we certainly expect to see more concrete details within the next few months.
One of the latest details that just surfaced today is more than enough to pique our interest. If you check out this promo video, you'll hear writer Rob Yascombe say the script for Haze is now over 1,000 pages long! Now, perhaps he's triple-spacing and using a 24 size font, but we highly doubt it. It sounds more like a FPS might have a very involving and engaging storyline (for once), which is a feature that should appeal to hardcore gamers everywhere. We accept the fact that gameplay should reign supreme and be of utmost importance, but that doesn't mean we have to sacrifice a great story, right?
An early trailer for Haze - it showed up on the PlayStation Store last year - shows an introductory scene where one super-fast assailant easily disarms a pair of soldiers. Obviously, this dude must be on that "nectar" we've been hearing so much about. And with over a thousand pages of script, we imagine there's a lot more to the plot than meets the eye... Keep checking back for more Haze news; we'll be on the lookout.
