Techland announces development of Warhound, apparently deciding the announcement
of the game in August 2006 (story
) didn't have sufficient impact.
The reannouncement includes word on the
, but that offers nothing but a broken image. The
announcement does offer new details, such as support for DirectX 10 and an Xbox
360 edition, as well as a Q4 2007 release date. Update:
There are some
Warhound Screenshots for PC on GameSpot
(thanks Hump). Here's word:
Techland is pleased to announce that it's working on a new FPP shooter
called "Warhound". The game puts you in the role of a freelance mercenary, whose
job is to intervene in some of the most brutal and precipitous armed conflicts
around the world.
You will choose from a number of differing missions, equipment and your
character's development possibilities. During the game you will freely decide
what skills of the mercenary you want to improve. The most important features of
the game are: many possible ways of playing each mission, a lot of vehicles that
you can use on the battlefield and the multiple story line. "Warhound" runs on
the latest implementation of Techland's acclaimed "Chrome Engine", guaranteeing
photorealistic graphics, large open terrains, vastly interactive gameplay and
effects utilizng the most up-to-date technologies including DirectX 10 support.
"Warhound" will debut in Q4 2007 on the PC and Xbox 360 platforms. The game's
website is now operational – you can visit it at
