Salvation Announced

Black Wing Foundation, a Ukraine-based development studio, announces Salvation, a Source-engine third-person shooter due for release for PC and Xbox 360 next year. Some concept art and screenshots are already online along with info on the game and its background story. Here's a bit:

Year 2026. The World government resorted to stem cells and gene engineering to stage the Judgment Day. They created genetic replications of Christ and Antichrist and destroyed them right away in the course of events to set forth severe fundamentalism on Earth, propped by the idea of communicating with God via machines as well as by the army of cloned creatures, called Angels...

Every single step of mankind is controlled by the will of a handful technocrats looking after several super-servers “linked-up to heaven”, so as to make any their decision the only and right one. The population is kept in constant stasis, technologies are forbidden, each and everyone has to “repent” once a week, putting it in a more plain text “repent” means a weekly brain-scan. For any wrong thoughts they find they may execute or send to Hell - cybernetic virtual environment system that makes a man suffer immensely. In year 2026, the dissidents, profoundly individual people across the globe set up scattered resistance teams and try to topple the regime. They wage invisible wars, but the strengths are far from being equal…

The protagonists of the game are people from various climes with different past, but common and terrifying present. They are bound together with the idea of overthrowing the Regime and destroying the Hell and Paradise virtual systems. They will have to overcome many obstacles on their way to the truth, hidden from people by the New World Government.

Throughout 14 missions grouped into 7 episodes, the player will take up roles of Narumi Amano, - a genetically modified assassin, Sergei Thor – the captain of east European resistance cell and Alexander Geist – a rather cynical psy-powered smuggler with his own motives to hate the Regime. The game is planned for release in Q2 of 2009 on PC and Xbox360.
