Playlogic today announced its line-up for the 2006 E3 in Los Angeles, California. Playlogic will showcase two world premieres with "Infernal" and "Age of Pirates: Captain Blood". Read more for details ...

Infernal (World Premiere)

"Infernal" tells the story of Ryan Lennox, a handsome devil who works undercover for the forces of Hell as a special agent on Earth. The game play centres around the eternal battle between heaven and hell, good and evil.

You're a top intelligence agent, but also a devil straight from hell. You use the latest hi-tech gadgets, hack computers, fight hand-to-hand or provide cover fire. And when all this becomes insufficient, use your supernatural infernal powers. Ryan Lennox turns into a ghost, feeds himself with defeated souls and every weapon in his hands becomes truly devilish...

Unique atmosphere, unbelievable graphics, great amount of possibilities combined with simple intuitive steering, and a hero never seen before - this constitutes the essence of "Infernal".

Age of Pirates: Captain Blood (World Premiere)
