The Farm 51 has released a teaser trailer – and two new screenshots – for its upcoming next-gen FPS title, Get Even. Get Even aims to be different from the crowd with visuals based on 3D scans of real locations and character, and will aim to blend single player with multiplayer. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 3 and is planned for a 2015 release. Enjoy!
Here is the press release for Get Even.
Get Even subtlety removes the classic division between single-player and multiplayer experiences to unfold two linked stories. The game’s plot revolves around the memories of its central heroes which have a dramatic effect on how the game progresses. The route the player chooses to follow determines their personality as the game unfolds. The carefully crafted storyline mixes elements of thriller and horror with exploration.
As these personality traits are revealed, the merging of single-player and multiplayer elements tighten. When players embark on a single-player mission, others on the network can join the quest as enemies, so players never know whether their opponents are human or CPU-based. This suspense further heightens the player’s feeling of a threat.
To create the photo-realistic visuals that bring the gritty universe to life, Get Even is the first game to use large-scale, real-world scanning to create expansive and lifelike environments. This 3D scanning technology combines with advanced lighting effects to create a stunning and believable world that pushes the boundaries of the genre.
Similarly, the team has worked to provide advanced weaponry and technology that exceeds current capabilities but are not beyond the realm of real-world application. For instance, weapons that fire around corners play a large part in Get Even, allowing the user to shoot from a safe position. These weapons can be linked with the player’s in-game smart phone to not only add a sight functionality, but use apps to bolster attack options. Corner-shot weapons are fully customizable throughout the game.
Wojtek Pazdur, CEO of The Farm 51, says: “As an independent developer, it would be foolish to go head-to-head with the larger companies and create a ‘me-too’ knock-off, and frankly we wouldn’t be interested in doing it. We believe that there is still a ton of content and design creativity that has yet to be explored in the first-person genre, as well as an audience beyond the warfare player – those are the people we are going for with Get Even.”
Get Even is the combined creative effort of key development talent who were responsible for titles such as Painkiller: Hell and Damnation, Deadfall Adventures and NecroVisioN and who are committed to producing a first-person action game that does away with many of the conventions and limitations that define the first-person shooter genre and ultimately stands apart from the multitude of often tired competition.
Scheduled for 2015 and oriented toward digital distribution, Get Even is currently several months into development and The Farm 51 will be releasing further details on in-game content as the game progresses.
