5th Cell details Hybrid changes, shows new trailer

Online-focused FPS due on XBLA this summer.

Scribblenauts developer 5th Cell has revealed a few new details of its forthcoming multiplayer Xbox Live Arcade shooter Hybrid.

First announced back in 2010, the studio went back to the drawing board following its first public showing at GDC in March last year. Nearly a year on, and it's ready to show off the results.

As seen in the new trailer below, players can now fly between cover points at the push of a button. While in flight you'll have full control of your horizontal and vertical movement, speed and landing location.

The game's art style has also undergone a revamp, with 5th Cell claiming more detailed environments, a new interface and redesigned character models. It'll apparently all run at 60fps at 720p.

The game's ambitious core concept remains unchanged however. You'll be picking a side and duking it out in a massive persistent online world war.

It's due out some time in the Summer.
