'Devastation' Comes To Europe - Screens

Since early code was revealed earlier this year at E3 in Los Angeles, Devastation has become one of the most eagerly awaited PC titles of 2002 and is currently scheduled for a November release.

Set on post-apocalyptic Earth where survival and ultimate dominance are all that matters, Devastation is a high action, teamplay oriented first person shooter. Powered by heavily modified, next generation UnrealĀ® Engine technology, it pits teams of rebelling street fighters, gang leaders, mercenaries and ex-military fighters against overwhelming armies of high-tech corporate troopers.

  • Incredible Hollywood-style explosions and special effects showcase awesome particle physics including explosive headshots, flowing water, amazing weapon effects, realistic fire, ragdoll deaths and blood – lots of blood!
  • Next generation AI gives enemies micro-behaviour and a heightened awareness that makes them seem almost too real.
  • A dynamic tactical component allows you to decide how much control to exert over non-player character teammates. Give individual commands or none at all to co-ordinate an eight person attack or just go in guns blazing!
  • In the completely interactive environments, everything can be used, destroyed or manipulated. Set traps with garbage or use broken bottles to slash your way to victory!
  • The choice of 30 weapons includes machine guns, swords, handguns, sniper weapons and incredible Rat Drones that allow players to ‘become’ weapons.
  • There are 32 massive photorealistic levels based on real-world textures including 20 single-player and 12 multi-player maps set in four environments.
  • The objective-based single player campaign calls for special skills like stealth, surveillance, computer hacking and sniping.
  • Go head-to-head, or mix it up with co-operative games in both Arcade and Simulation settings. There’s something for everyone, including an exciting new style of multi-player gaming!
  • Superior sound includes the ability to use noise to distract enemies or alert team mates and there’s a cutting edge techno soundtrack from Messy.

“Devastation looks amazing and we are excited about bringing it to Europe,” said Mike Klumper, Managing Director of HD Interactive. “This title will fortify the growing HD line-up and is certainly our flagship release of the year.”

Release date: November, 2002. RRP: Ā£ 39.99.
