Oxygen Opens Fire With Atomic Titles
Further expanding their burgeoning release schedule, Oxygen have now added two
new FPS titles to their release schedule, with PS2 and PC versions in
simultaneous development. Due in September, Vietnam: The Tet Offensive will
feature a range of action-packed missions and an innovative damage system,
packed with accurate historical details. Following a month later, SAS: Against
All Odds boasts counter-terrorist missions based on contemporary politics, with
stealth-heavy, tactical gameplay.
Having already built up a range of sports and motorsports titles, these new
additions provide a logical extension of the range. As Publishing Director Kevin
Hassall explains: "These are two easily-accessible, high-quality titles,
combining pick-up-and-play gameplay with subject matter that everyone can
understand. With a mass-market retail price and full-price gameplay, with these
as with our sports titles we're delivering quality and value-for-money to casual
and dedicated gamers alike."
Development is already well under way at Atomic Planet Entertainment, with teams
who have already proved themselves with high-quality action and adventure
titles. "It is great to be working with such an ambitious, and fresh new
publisher as Oxygen" says APE MD, Darren Falcus. "Their philosophy of developing
quality products at an impulse buy price point fits in nicely with our goal of
creating great games for the mass market. After many years of development, we
are finally reaping the rewards of our investment in our cross platform
technology and tools which allow us to make games in a shorter timescale, whilst
maintaining a high quality."
Oxygen have assigned a six-figure TV advertising budget to add real firepower to
the planned PR and marketing campaign, which will cover on-line, lifestyle,
specialist, in-store and TV/radio.
