First Singularity details materialise

Time-bending shooter from Raven.

Activision has released the first details of sci-fi shooter Singularity.

The PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game will be set on a mysterious island occupied by Russians during the Cold War, according to the February Game Informer teaser. And it's here that a US pilot uncovers the terrible secrets behind the element E99 tests of the 1950s.

We've no idea what they are, but the central theme involves using time as an aid and a weapon. Apparently enemies can be rapidly aged and decomposed on the spot.

Raven Software of Quake 4 and Wolfenstein credit will be creating Singularity, and use the Unreal Engine 3 to save some time.

Activision unveiled the shooter back at E3 with a trailer but offered little else.

More soon, we hope.
