Previously scheduled for release on Feb. 7, 2012, and prior to that somewhere in 2010, Namco Bandai Games has provided us with an updated release list confirming that Inversion has been delayed, with no new specific release date at this point. Clarifying the "to be confirmed" postponing, Namco Bandai stated:
"This additional development time will allow the team to polish several key aspects of the game ensuring Inversion is of the highest quality."
Inversion takes players on a whirlwind journey complete with nonstop firefights, and a suspense-filled storyline. Packed to the brim with action, Inversion also introduces revolutionary gravity-wielding combat, zero gravity environments, vector changes, and a unique destructible cover system.
Inversion is a third-person co-op shooter that combines hard-hitting, adrenaline-pumping action with a revolutionary gravity manipulation engine. Featuring the Grappler weapon, players will be able to manipulate gravity for their own purposes. The Grappler can be used in countless combat situations by maneuvering massive objects as shields or projectiles, and moving camped enemies out of concealed cover so they can be blasted away. The Grappler is also a key tool for tactical situations and puzzle solving as players can lift, move, or create cover objects at their whim. The awesome power of gravity is right at players’ fingertips. Additionally, Inversion is one of the first games to feature the HAVOK destruction engine which bestows Inversion with massively destructible environments including an elaborate cover system.
Set in the near future, the tranquil peace enjoyed by mankind shatters with an unforeseen invasion by an unknown enemy called the Lutadore. Armed to the teeth with futuristic gravity-controlling weapons, the Lutadore easily overrun the city’s defenses. Unbeknownst to all, mysterious anomalies have surfaced in conjunction with the invasion. Random regions in the city have entered zero gravity or have suffered vector changes, throwing the world into topsy-turvy chaos. Assuming the role of Davis Russel, a hotheaded 28-year-old cop, or Leo Delgado, Davis’ neighbor, players will embark on a journey through the war ravaged gravity twisted disorienting streets of their home town and beyond, to find Davis' missing child.
