Ubi unveils Laser Quest-style shooter

Battle Tag to work with new gun peripherals. 

Ubisoft has unveiled a brand new shooter which is played using a special laser gun peripheral - Battle Tag.

It was demoed at Ubisoft's E3 conference by a bunch of developers and models, who ran round the auditorium shooting each other. They were wearing harnesses to which the guns were attached via cables. Laser Quest for your house, basically.

Data from shooting matches is transferred to a PC, and the computer will keep track of what's going on wherever you play.

Battle Tag will be released at the end of the year. In North America, said producer Gael Sedoux, you'll get two guns and two harnesses in the box. You'll also be able to get accessories, such as a small box which replenishes your armour when you touch the gun to it.

Matches will be playable by up to four versus four players.
