Earth No More Announced

3D Realms announces Earth No More, an upcoming cross-platform game that will be revealed in the July 2007 issue of Game Informer Magazine appearing in subscribers mailboxes today and on newsstands later this week. Earth No More is in the works at Recoil Games, founded by Samuli Syvahuoko formerly of Remedy, and the announcement says the game is due in 2009, oddly deferring to the magazine for this tidbit ("slated for 2009 according to the article"). The magazine piece will offer an interview and screenshots (as well as a new Duke Nukem Forever shot), but the story online is scant on details like genre, offering the following bits of tid:

"The development team is specifically moving away from what they call the 'lone hero,' while also avoiding a squad-based direction." "'We're going to design almost every weapon in the game to where it's going to have a sort of collaborative mode to it,' says Miller. One gun called the Linker works like a reverse proton pack from Ghostbusters."

"The good guys aren't the only ones who can team up, however. Enemies are being designed to complement each other's skills as well."

"The team is intricately analyzing how group dynamics work in movies like the Alien, The Thing, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and 28 Days Later, hoping to emulate that kind of tension in game form."

3D Realms concludes their story on this promising another big announcement (unrelated to DNF) soon.
