PS3 Exclusive Under Siege Revealed
The list of upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusives is awfully impressive, but it's time to add another one to the list: it's called Under Siege, a new strategy title by Seed Studios.
As PSU reports, the game is in the "pre-alpha" stages and is being built from the ground up specifically for Sony's machine. Here's one of the freshly released pics, and if you're a RTS fan, you should realize two things: 1. there aren't that many titles in this genre these days, and 2. as the very first RTS developed just for the PS3, it should be worthy of your attention. Said Seed Studios Lead Designer Bruno Ribeiro:
"Under Siege features an original world, unique gameplay elements and a control scheme designed with a console controller in mind. We are also working on implementing a large number of multiplayer and community features with special emphasis on user generated content."
There are plenty of great titles on the horizon, but how many of them fall into the strategy genre? There was a time, about a decade ago, when PC users counted RTSs as a major source of entertainment, but these days...well, action/adventure has basically taken over the entire industry. But those of you who still wish to flex some tactical brain muscle ought to be pretty psyched about Under Siege. ...and no, it has no relation to Steven Seagal's best movie.
