Publisher Namco Hometek has announced that it is set to publish team based first person shooter Stargate SG-1: The Alliance in North America later this year on PC, PS2 and Xbox.
Based on the long-running science fiction TV series from MGM, itself based on the popular nineties movie Stargate, the game is being created by Australian developer Perception and is being published in Europe by JoWooD.
Players will assume the roles of all four of the SG-1 team, with the original TV actors - Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping and Christopher Judge - providing voices for the parts.
A variety of multiplayer options will also be built into the game, including the ability to play cooperatively with three other players and a variety of competitive multiplayer modes. The ability to download and create new content is also built into the game.
"Science fiction fans everywhere will rejoice at Stargate SG-1: The Alliance, an authentic interpretation of one of the most beloved sci-fi series ever," enthused Namco Hometek executive VP Garry Cole.
"With an original storyline, intense team based gameplay and a host of competitive and cooperative multiplayer options, the game breaks new ground in delivering an engrossing deep space adventure," he concluded.
