Fall of Liberty Announced

Codemasters joins forces with Spark Unlimited for ‘Fall of Liberty’ announces Fall of Liberty, which is the working title for an alternate-history World War II first-person shooter in the works at Spark Unlimited (Call of Duty: Finest Hour) slated for release in fourth quarter of 2007. The Fall of Liberty Product Section is live, and here's word:

Codemasters today announces a publishing agreement with Spark Unlimited, the U.S. studio responsible for Call of Duty: Finest Hour, for ‘Fall of Liberty’ (working title) an intense and cinematic next-gen first-person shooter epic set in an unnerving World War II alternate reality.

Codemasters will publish Fall of Liberty as a major Q4 2007 title for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC.

Fall of Liberty will take players to new battlegrounds in World War II - ones born from a changed moment in history that led to the Nazi invasion of 1950s America. Presenting this scenario as a powerful and realistically crafted alternate history, Fall of Liberty will deliver an explosive action experience in a world where famous real-world locations appear startlingly different under Nazi occupation.

“Spark is very excited to be working with Codemasters to bring to life an event gaming experience that will dramatise what might have happened if history had taken a different course,” says Craig Allen, CEO of Spark Unlimited.

“We share a desire to immerse players in an incredible and intensely realistic vision of an alternative world history that will uniquely define Fall of Liberty in the FPS genre. Codemasters is providing Spark the opportunity to present something radically different than typical WWII scenarios as the player is not cast as a liberator of Europe but as a defender of freedom in enemy-occupied America.”

Fall of Liberty changes reality by twisting one historical fact: In 1931, Winston Churchill was hit by a taxi on 5th Avenue in New York. In reality, he survived the accident but walked with a cane for the rest of his life. But what might have followed if Winston Churchill had been killed in the accident? Without his voice to lead a country to war, the events of WWII change dramatically; the Normandy invasion never happens and the UK and all of Europe come under Nazi rule by 1945.

Building on the successful conquest of Europe, Nazi intelligence develops superior weapons and vehicles so that on December 7, 1951 they are able to launch an all out surprise attack on America - beginning with a mass invasion of New York.

We've finally moved beyond World War II shooters only to get an alternative future where we're *still* fighting Nazis, on American soil.

Edit: I thought someone already ran the scenarios on this one, are they planning on the German's having developed nukes? Because even if they had managed to get that heavy water plant up, they were way behind and on the wrong track. Or maybe in this one Einstein never left Germany....argh alternate history is full of holes
