VU to demo mystery Monolith title

Vivendi-Universal Games is claiming that Monolith's latest project, which it plans to show off at E3 this week, might be described as "The Matrix meets The Ring". First shot inside.


Along with the various titles Vivendi-Universal Games has trailed ahead of E3, the publisher is also planning to show off a new, as-yet unannounced Monolith title which it describes as "The Matrix meets The Ring", and has released a teaser screenshot which you hopefully can see to the left of this paragraph.

Apart from the pitch, which is certainly intriguing, we also know it will offer an "intense close-quarters combat experience with rich atmosphere and an engaging story presented entirely in first person". Oh, and in case you can't be bothered to click on the shot, the tagline seems to be "They say bullets taste like chicken... Hope you're hungry."

Whatever it turns out to be, and however daft the tagline is, the screenshot is certainly very detailed and has plenty of impressive visual effects flying around. Expect details from the show floor in Los Angeles this week.
