The End Announced

This press release reveals development of The End, an Unreal Engine 3 first-person shooter from Farmarix Enterprises planned for release in 2009 (thanks FiringSquad). The release bandies about the phrase "next generation," often a codeword for (this generation) consoles, but concentrates on establishing the game's "AAA" bona fides based on the engine license. This job opening post indicates PC and Xbox 360 are the game's target platforms, and offers a bit on the story:
Miles Caden is haunted by his past. Once a proud military officer and happy family man, he now lives in a perpetual state of regret. Not long after the fateful accident that left him and his best friend dishonorably discharged, he lost his wife to a tragic car accident. Depressed and desolate, he slips into a life of alcoholism. Only his cousin, Chaz, took him in, as he was forsaken by the rest of his family. Nothing seemed to be going right, until one day Chaz offered Miles the chance to get back his dignity. A chance to pull his life together. But nothing comes for free, and Miles has to decide how much he's willing to lose in order to regain his former self.
