NecroVisioN Unveiled

The Farm 51 Website has a vague tease of their next project, referencing "a first person action horror game using highly enhanced Painkiller technology." Now PR manager Jakub Oszczepaliński sends along the revelation that the title of this game is NecroVisioN, saying "I’m sure that this will be one of the best next-gen shooters coming in 2006." Here's what they are revealing at this point:
The year is 1916. Young American joins UK Army to survive the adventure of his life and soon realizes that greater evil is hiding beneath the Great War storm. He has to face the underground world of vampires, demons, evil genius creatures and even became one of the demons to rescue the human and vampire kind from forces of darkness.

NecroVisioN is a next-gen First Person Shooter that starts in the rage battlefields of World Word I and leads player to much darker and brutal underground world of vampires and demons.

If some here had actually researched this game (even a little) you would know it is not a WW1 shooter. It is a FPS/horror game. Yes, much like Undying, (loved it) Hey, they HAD werewolves! This game looks to be the Next-gen of PainKiller. Probably not the next-gen in graphics. If you like FPSers, and have not played Painkiller yet, accept the outdated graphics and you'll like the game. My favorite weapon was the "Painkiller's" spinning meat grinder/grabber.
English is their 2nd or 3rd language, so give'em a break on spelling and grammer. How many of you speak Polish or Czech?
Trite plot and theme??? How many other world adventure/RPG are there? How many earthly "take overs" by monsters??? HL2 comes to mind. Trite? Perhaps, but Who CARES!!! I anxiously await its release. I LIKED the name too.

I wouldn't be surprised if I never heard about this game again.

Particularly if someone poured molten lead in your ears.

Awful name, awful theme. WWI is an under-exploited resource but vampires and demons certainly are not. I wouldn't be surprised if I never heard about this game again.

We are really running out of ideas for games and the names that go with it...

Heh i got kinda excited by the press release, "World Word 1" sounded like some cool twisted future war of the language type of thing..

Apparently tho no one bothered to run a spell check...

I guess they want to avoid disappointment at a trite plot twist by ensuring that it doesn't come as a surprise. I'm not sure how that helps their cause overall, but hey.

I'll give any game the benefit of the doubt, but that could definitely have been better-written. "Evil genius creatures", eh?

Oh, and Blue: is it actually worth mentioning that their PR Manager thinks it will be great?!

ON the upside, it's apparently a WWI shooter. This is a setting that has always been waiting for a way for somebody to exploit effectively.

On the downside....
and even became one of the demons to rescue the human and vampire kind from forces of darkness.

Gak! That's been done, and it was trite all the other times too.

Sounds like a prequel to Undying or something.
