Set in the show’s seventh season, the fear begins when Mulder and Scully travel to the small Rocky Mountain town of Red Falls to investigate a string of unusual murders linked to ghost sightings, the undead, and other paranormal phenomena. The agents then pursue an inhuman killer to a secret research facility in the Siberian wasteland and finally into the depths of a buried alien spacecraft. If they survive, they will unravel the mystery of the black oil and prevent the alien colonization of the planet...for now.

Maintaining the authenticity of The X-Files, the game features familiar environments and characters faithfully recreated from The X-Files television show, including Mulder, Scully, Skinner, the Cigarette-Smoking Man, The Lone Gunmen and more. The X-Files: Resist or Serve takes the X-Files authenticity one step further by also including the score and dynamic music created by those responsible for the music behind the television show.

The game plays out over three X-Files episodes (each complete with a teaser, title sequence, and "To be continued..." endings).

Features :

  • Three unique, action-filled episodes created by the Executive Producers of the X-Files.
  • Fight to survive inexplicable horrors as Mulder or Scully, each with unique specialties and abilities
  • X-Files Authenticity: Authentic X-Files characters, voiceovers, music and storylines Terrifying “Jump-out-of-your-seat” scripted events and twisted, fully interactive dream sequences.
  • Highly interactive, real-time rendered 3D environments.
  • Unique DVD-style user interface with commentary/interviews from cast, developers.

The X-Files is a completely new franchise for Sierra Entertainment, Inc., but not the first time seen in gaming. The first title, published by Fox Interactive, was merely a point and click adventure done completely in full motion video. Gamers weren’t able to play as either Agent Mulder or Agent Scully. Despite mediocre and poor reviews in the US, the title sold-through extremely well on both the PC (215k units) and the PSX (190k units) platforms. Internationally, it sold through 305k units on PC and 282k units on PSX.

Black Ops Entertainment™, who is based in Santa Monica, California, is developing The X-Files: Resist or Serve. Black Ops’ most recent development was on Street Hoops, street basketball title for PS2 and Xbox. Black Ops is known for creating several of the James Bond 007 titles for PSX, including The World is Not Enough and Tomorrow Never Dies. On the sports front, Black Ops created nearly all the Knockout Kings titles for EA and College Hoops 2000.
