Codemasters unveils Damnation

Fresh new Gears of War-like shooter.

Codemasters has unveiled a new shooter called Damnation for PC, PS3 and 360.

It's due out this winter and is described as Gears of War meets Prince of Persia meets the Wild West.

You play as Rourke but appear to be followed around by a female companion who we expect will be co-op controllable, although specific multiplayer options are yet to be detailed.

The Gears of War similarities are immediately apparent from the environments in the first batch of screenshots, as well as the third-person shooter mechanics.

The Prince of Persia similarities come from the ability to explore levels on a vertical axis; hopping around the place or doing stunts to cross impenetrable chasms. Incidentally there will also be over-the-top vehicles like motorbikes that can leap gaps like Morpheus and Tanks that can take bullets like 50 Cent.

The Wild West inspiration comes from a Wild West setting. Simple.

Blue Omega is the development force behind it, and had its work commissioned after a Damnation prototype won the Make Something Unreal tournament hosted by Epic Games.

Sounds interesting.
