In Onslaught, players will take on hordes of insect cyborgs to save a distant research colony.
“It’s clear that core gamers feel that there’s a void in games that cater to them on Wii,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. “With Onslaught, we’re aiming to fill that void and give gamers the option of an affordable, accessible, first person shooter experience on the Wii – something that hasn’t been done before.”
In Onslaught, players are sent on a mission to find the reason contact with a distant research colony was lost. Upon arrival, they find themselves attacked by an overwhelming horde of giant bugs. Players use the Nunchuk and Wii Remote to aim, shoot, reload and toss grenades at the creatures in order to survive. As the bugs get bigger, so do the weapons. Jump into fighting vehicles when the situation arises and send the insects crawling back to their holes. With online capabilities for four person co-op, players can also link up and play with friends to battle the bugs together, without fear of friendly fire.
Onslaught, rated T for Teen, is currently scheduled for this spring and will be downloadable through the WiiWare shop.
