Inversion given UK release date

TimeShift dev's gravity gun romp.

Inversion, the next game from TimeShift maker Saber Interactive, will release on 8th February 2012.

Very specific for a game nearly a year away, Namco Bandai.

Inversion, crudely, is Gears of War with a gravity gun. There is co-op, there are biceps; there is cover and there are bayonet attachments with which to make a point.

"To be perfectly honest, we used Gears as an inspiration. We're not going to shy away from it - it's a good game, and why reinvent the wheel?" Saber boss Matthew Karch asked Eurogamer last year.

"I think what we're bringing new is really on the physics front."

"Yeah, I'm sure some people are going to say that, and that's fine. As long as we can match what Gears is doing... We love that game, so why not?"

It's all gravity.
