New Black trailer and shots

See the opening level.

EA's released a brand new 90MB trailer of Criterion's frantic PS2 and Xbox FPS Black, showing off the destructibility of the game's opening lobby section, as well as a selection of brand new screenshots.

The trailer, which you can nab from Eurofiles, sees the player blowing chunks out of pillars with grenades and showering the area in clouds of dust by raking the scenery with automatic gunfire.

Rather like Monolith's excellent F.E.A.R., Criterion's paying its respects to the "shooter" bit of "first-person shooter", concentrating on the fun you can have with big guns in a gorgeous game engine, shunning stealth, squad commands and other distractions, and drawing inspiration from Hollywood action films from the '80s and '90s.

Playing as Sergeant First-Class Jack Kellar, you're sent off to Eastern Europe with your BLACK ops team and tasked with bringing in a traitor. By shooting the crap out of everything within eyeshot.

The full game's due out on PS2 and Xbox in early 2006.
