KONAMI PREPARES TO UNLEASH APOCALYPTICATM
Intense New Action Combat Game Set to Debut on PC CD-ROM in Fall 2003
Konami of America, Inc., a subsidiary of Konami Corporation (NYSE: KNM), today announced that ApocalypticaTM will be available in North America for PC CD-ROM in September 2003. Intense 3rd-person shooting action comes to life in this post-apocalyptic tale of good versus evil.
Produced by Konami's new European development studio and created by UK-based Extreme FX, Apocalyptica will have players putting their faith to the test as they confront malevolent bosses and divine forces of evil. The game's powerful proprietary engine has been specifically designed to allow players to experience swift, seamless free-roaming action and unforgettable combat sequences. Complete with challenging team-based quests and heart-pounding battles against enemy forces that are equipped with extremely advanced A.I., the game contains riveting gameplay that will keep players up deep into the night.
With Neo-Satan and his army of minions taking control of Earth, the Dark Lord's rule of the universe seems imminent. In a bold move to save the human race, an elite group of military heroes are recruited to infiltrate Satan's planetary strongholds and free the innocents from his control. Players must choose from one of four technologically advanced religious soldiers, each with unique abilities and strengths. With the fate of the free world in their hands, players must guide their character and three loyal soldiers, armed with an arsenal of weapons, through awe-inspiring worlds. Players will battle the enemy with three different attacks: firearms, melee weapons and spell-casting, in an effort to banish the evil forces and let paradise prevail.
