'Shadowgrounds' Goes Gold In North America

by Rainier on April 4, 2006 @ 8:30 a.m. PDT

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 going gold in North America means a lot to Frozenbyte", says Lauri Hyvarinen, Frozenbyte CEO. "I can't wait to let players experience the unique atmosphere in Shadowgrounds, not to mention the cool weapon upgrades that really let gamers go all-out in their monster killing spree."

“We are very excited about the progress that Shadowgrounds has shown. Shadowgrounds is a fresh take on the whole action genre - a tribute to old-school action games and yet so fresh it is being compared to the likes of Doom3”, says Andy Sher, CEO at Meridian4.

Shadowgrounds will be available in North American retail stores and online after April 25th at a suggested retail price of $29.99. This title has been rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
