505 Games today announces a global agreement with Russian developer Biart Studio LLC, to publish Deep Black on Sony’s PlayStation 3® and Microsoft’s Xbox360® console systems. Adding to the publisher’s growing line-up of Xbox 360 and PS3 titles, Deep Black lets players experience for the first time the thrills of a third person action shooter in an underwater setting.
With the release set for Q1 2011, the unique setting of Deep Black combines action-packed battles with an immersive story line, of complex science-fiction mystery, espionage and bio-terror. Offering realistic physics in an underwater environment brings new “depths” to in-game challenges in Deep Black.
Players will take to the murky depths armed with a wrath of underwater equipment from specialized underwater jet packs with integrated harpoons, mini submersibles and other high tech equipment in pursuit of enemies. With the majority of the game play taking place below the water’s surface, action-adventure fans will need to master new skills to fight hostile enemies and infiltrate enemy bases.
