Snowblind Unveiled

A new first-person action game called Snowblind was subtly unveiled at E3, the project is in the works at Crystal Dynamics, and slated to be published by Eidos Interactive this fall for the PC, Xbox, and PS2 (thanks HomeLAN Fed). Here's the fact sheet on the game:

snow-blind´ (snó blīnd´)
adj : Military jargon for a complete system shutdown of all internal electrical and bio-mechanical systems. Generally created by an EMP blast or similar electrical disturbance in the local vicinity.

Product Description:
Experience the dramatic intensity of the frontlines of a war through the eyes of the first of a new breed of super soldiers in this gritty and epic first-person action game.

Players live the fantasy of being an elite special operations combat soldier with access to the most high-tech weaponry, gadgets and vehicles, presented with all the realism, emotional intensity, and valor found in the popular “War Games” shooter genre.

Game Features:
• Robust online multiplayer experience with 16 players and voice over IP support – classic and new multiplayer modes are offered, including some modes uniquely designed for the PS2 and XB platforms
• Arsenal of unique weapons and secondary items including the Riot Wall™ and the “Kicker” physics gun yield a variety and depth of gameplay never before realized, especially when leveraged in multiplayer play.
• Vehicles serve as functional obstacle solving tools, for rescue attempts and as weapons in both single and multiplayer gameplay
• Use Biomods to customize, upgrade and exploit the superhuman powers of your character
• Build an emotional connection to your comrades in battle; during the missions you have the power to rescue, heal and protect them. Neglect their cries for help and view with shame their names on the War Memorial Wall at the end of the game
• Wide variety in mission pacing ranges from frenetic action of battlefield chaos to tactical infiltration style missions
• Storyline is grounded in a believable, relevant near future setting, in a war as seen through the eyes of a hero
• Pick-up & play, visceral action pulls the player through a cinematically immersive storyline
• 11 missions spanning across 16 maps including the dilapidated Opera House, the twisting jungle at the city perimeter, a Buddhist Temple converted, and sprawling urban Wasteland

Do IGN reporters not even have the time for a quick proof read? - On another note this game seems half-baked even in the press release and the sight of the phrase 'riot wall' trademarked sends cold shivers down my spine.
