Codemasters dates Damnation

Steampunk western coming next month.

Codemasters has announced that it will release Blue Omega's steampunk action game Damnation for PC, 360 and PS3 on 22nd May.

Damnation pictures an alternate USA ruled by an evil corporation after a 20-year civil war ended in stalemate: all canyons, cowboy hats, dusters and steam-powered motorbikes.

It's a third-person shooter with platforming elements in which you'll traverse huge stages vertically as well as horizontally, drive bikes along walls and sling guns Western-style. Gears of War meets Prince of Persia is the soundbite summary.

Damnation was originally due for release late last year but was delayed, in part to steer clear of big releases like those two.

Plenty more information and our hands on impressions are available at the Damnation gamepage.
