Xenus at ECTS

More East European shooters infiltrate show

Russian developers Deep Shadows will be demonstrating their first person shooter Xenus at this year's ECTS. Designed by some of the talent behind the flawed Codename Outbreak, the game is set in the jungles of Columbia and sees you setting out to rescue a lost journalist. Along the way you'll get to explore over six hundred square kilometers of uninterrupted terrain, drive around in a wide range of vehicles, chat to the locals and interact with factions varying from the CIA to drugs cartels. With any luck we should know more by the end of the week, but in the meantime we've got four brand new shots of the game in action to give you a taste of things to come.
