Techland announces Warhound, an upcoming mercenary-themed first-person shooter
that does not yet carry a set release date. The first screenshots from the game

. In spite of being a mercenary in Warhound, you are an A-Team type,
"on the side of good," and have the licenses to prove it. Here's word:
Warhound is an FPP shooter where you make a career of the elite
mercenary. When you are not working, you get new licenses and improve. When at
work, you take part in the hottest world conflicts
Because you are a Warhound - an elite mercenary on the side of good.
The choice is yours. You've got a laptop and a map of the world. Presidents,
businessmen, and ordinary people ask you for help where nothing more can be done
officially. You choose a mission, then fly, clean and disappear. You get the
reward and nobody knows anything.
