'Xevicom Unlimited' Announced - Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 30, 2009 @ 6:08 a.m. PDT

Xevicom Unlimited, based on Ray Reid's Xevicom Forever, is a new chapter in the exciting dystopian future Reid first portrayed in Xevicom Forever in 2005, with new stories, characters, and scenarios that add to and expand the existing narrative.

Love can build a wall.  Hate can tear it down. Justice Stands Forever.

Set shortly after the events of the graphic novel, Xevicom Unlimited introduces players to Xevicom City in the aftermath of the comic’s bloody finale. Shockwave, the serial murderer whose activities set in motion the comic’s events, is rotting in prison but events surrounding his capture have further destabilized the delicate balance of power in Xevicom’s streets and organised (and disorganised) criminal bands have begun a bloody campaign of retribution against the city’s few remaining vigilantes. For the first time ever players will be able to take control of the mysterious Prophet in a story that follows his battle to quell this gang warfare whilst exploring his hitherto unknown origins. Through action packed battle sequences to rooftop chases, Xevicom Unlimited will bring the comic’s world to life like never before.


The game play in Xevicom Unlimited will focus on narrative driven action with a wide selection of heavy weaponry, intelligent enemy AI and exploration of the eponymous city. Indeed, exploration will be a key tactic as the game will feature a semi-open world layout that will allow players to tailor their gaming experience, whilst dealing with the moral dilemmas of vigilantism. The city of Xevicom will be brought to life with a colourful cast of characters, access to the world’s own fictional newspaper as well as the ability of players to manipulate their character’s moral standing among Xevicom’s citizens.

The game, being developed internally at Xevicom.com, features a new story by the graphic novel’s author, Ray Reid who said “I never expected to be able to continue the story of the Xevicom universe but this new videogame adaptation gives me a chance to pursue that dream in a completely new way.”

Xevicom Forever, the graphic novel, is out now as a digital download for PC with versions due out in the coming weeks for the Apple iPhone/iPod Touch and the PSP.
