'Shadowgrounds' Coming to North America

by Rainier on Jan. 19, 2006 @ 8:35 a.m. PST

Set in the near future, Shadowgrounds pits the player against oncoming alien hordes who are invading a colony base. The intriguing storyline takes on epic heights and mission highlights include investigating alien origins, helping in rescue evacuation and setting up defense perimeters. The player gets help from many allies who play an essential part in the overall story. In Shadowgrounds, players get a devastating arsenal of high-tech weaponry with which to dispose of the alien threat. Weapons can be customized with multiple upgrades, maximizing the carnage. Examples include a pinpoint laser that cuts aliens in half and a railgun that fires wall-bouncing bullets - several aliens can be killed with only one shot. Destructible environment allows players to wreak havoc in full scale.

"Shadowgrounds is coming to North America! The game has already received great feedback from gamers and we look forward to the North American response", said Lauri HyvTMrinen, CEO at Frozenbyte, "Many publishers were interested in Shadowgrounds but we believe Meridian4 is the right partner for us, because they share our passion for great games."

"Meridian4 is thrilled to be able to offer this terrific title to the North American audience. We were instantly hooked by the game's fast-paced action and great graphics the first time we played it." said Andrew Sher, CEO at Meridian4, "Shadowgrounds will become an instant classic in its genre."

Shadowgrounds is an epic sci-fi game that blends addictive old school gameplay and modern technology into one big, nasty alien-battling carnage festival. The game is played from a top-down perspective that gives gamers a better view of the battlefield and allows tactical use of weapons - new tactics become useful as their arsenal is upgraded to even more destructive weapons.
