U-Wars is a new title forthcoming in 2010 from BIART which takes an interesting twist on the standard scifi shooter.  It mostly takes place under water.  To quote the man from BIART:

In “U-Wars” the player will take control of an elite force and is constrained to accomplish covert operations both on land and undersea. As the PC version is supporting the NVIDIA PhysX technology the XBOX users will enjoy a variety of multiplayer modes via XBOX Live. During this year E3 the game was presented behind close doors and got great feedback from international publishers and journalists.

Sounds interesting – as long as it’s not just another shooter with a gimmick.  It does utilize PhysX technology , which may certainly make it very pretty.  Here’s the press release and a quick gallery of the four supplied screen shots.

Today the Russian developer BIART announce its ambitious next gen Project “U-WARS” on XBOX360, PC and PSP. Starting the developing progress end of 2007 the game will hit the shelves mid of 2010.

“U-Wars” is a tactical sci-fi third person shooter set up an ultra realistic subaqueous scenario. Combining the thrill of an undersea setting with a cinematic approach and a superior story line “U-Wars” is the first lifelike underwater action experience.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
