The year is 1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn't one of them. Quatermain isn't all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, a US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple complex in order to retrieve an ancient artifact - The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.
Originally scheduled for released late July, Nordic Games informed us that Deadfall Adventures has been pushed until September.
The development team at The Farm 51 have been working around the clock to ensure that the game is packed full of unique gameplay. It will feature a single player campaign, multiplayer battle arenas and can now reveal it will also feature a survival cooperation mode for the most impactful, action adventure game. The first person shooter experience has been combined with puzzle solving exploration so that players can immerse themselves in the role of the adventurer Quatermain.
“This is our most ambitious game to date and we’re working very closely alongside The Farm 51 to make sure that Deadfall Adventures provides players with seamless action and puzzle-solving experience,” said Reinhard Pollice at Nordic Games. “Holding back the game’s release until September is the right decision for us to ensure that the content included offers the greatest value for players, which it certainly will.”
“Adding the new survival cooperation mode adds even more content to the game which is always going to be a bonus for players,” said Wojciech Pazdur Development Director at Farm 51. “The new mode will be both challenging and engaging and players will be able to jump straight into the game toget the best of the action.”
But life has its ways of changing one's perspective. Quatermain soon finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala.
In the long-forgotten temple complex, the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and Agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather's stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten.
Deadfall Adventures uses Unreal Engine 3 to produce one of the most jaw-dropping spectacles this generation has enjoyed, as players battle natural and not-so-natural enemies. Along the way, fiendish puzzles, deadly traps and stunning set pieces will make this one of the greatest adventures ever told – let alone played.
