CDV Breeds

First person, third person, on foot, in vehicles, on ground and in space .. Breed gets everywhere

German publisher CDV has announced that it will be publishing Breed, the debut game from British start-up Brat Designs. A sci-fi shooter featuring both first and third person views, the game will include on-foot and in-vehicle action on the ground and in space. Exactly how this mish-mash of different genres will fit together remains to be seen, but it's certainly an ambitious game - the Brats are promising "cinematic quality" graphics, environmental audio effects and seamless transitions between the planet's surface and orbital space across 25 missions, not to mention the now obligatory multiplayer support.

Best of Breed?

The screenshots we have seen so far are certainly quietly impressive, even if the plot is a little clichéd. It seems some damn pesky biomechanical aliens called the Breed have decided to invade the Earth, and it's up to you to stop them. Expect to save the planet (again) some time next autumn.
