Scivelation Announced

TopWare Interactive announces Scivelation, a third-person shooter set in a dystopian future in the works at Black Wing Foundation for release in mid-2010 for Windows and unnamed consoles. They've released a few screenshots showing off the game's Unreal Engine 3 visuals. Also, GBASE has some background on this in their native German, saying this project started as a Source Engine game titled Salvation before the engine and title change, and it was originally announced for PC and Xbox 360, which may indicate the game's target console. Here's the announcement:

Las Vegas - Dnepropetrovsk, October 9th, 2009. TopWare Interactive has acquired the exclusive worldwide publishing rights to Scivelation, Black Wing Foundationís ambitious, story driven, action game. Armed with the Unreal III Engine, Scivelation is slated for a mid-2010 release for PC and next-gen consoles. Scivelation will transform the Third-Person Shooter genre into an unrelenting interactive experience, hurling the player into a blockbuster journey, steeped in conflict and veiled in uncertainty.

Set in the distant future, Scivelationís universe is a world born out of the ashes of conflict and misery. An oppressive global dictatorship, known as the Regime, has risen to power after the aftermath of the Apocalypse; aggressively seeking out and eliminating any opposition to their tyrannical government. With this capricious, dystopian reality as a backdrop, the player will take his or her place amongst the ranks of the resistance, waging war throughout the furthest reaches of the globe in this action-packed battle for freedom and survival.

Totally generic looking. Do devs even try to make something unique anymore? "set in a dystopian future" is just another name for "vaguely european slum area."

UE3 isn't exactly a demanding engine. If your computer can't handle it, you really need to upgrade.

While the UT3 engine is pretty, you suddenly get rid of a large amount of PC gamers by upping the system requirements. Source can be played on a large range of PCs. I'm basing this all on UT3 itself. Has the engine been made more scalable lately?
If you're avid about playing PC games at all, you should have a decent enough computer to run an Unreal Engine based game pretty well.
Hell, you can get such a PC (outdated hardware) for $400 or less these days.
Essentially, if running HL2 is as far as your PC can go, you need to bite the bullet and upgrade.

Looks kinda interesting - although for some reason the screenies screamed Fallout 3 to me.

Originality is dead. Heck, I don't even think interesting derivation is possible anymore.

Topware confirmed that the game originated from Salvation but with redesigned characters, new story written by North American writers and NA voiceovers.
