Advent Rising devs' new game

It's another sci-fi adventure.

A group of developers who worked on last year's PC and Xbox title Advent Rising have teamed up to form a brand new studio - and they're already hard at work on a brand new game.

The first title from Chair Entertainment will be called Empire, and like AR, it's being developed with the help of acclaimed sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card. But this time, it's the studio who's supplying the story - Card will write a book based on the game.

Apparently the action takes place in a world where "the American Empire has grown too fast, and the fault lines at home are stressed to the breaking point. The war of words between Right and Left has collapsed into a shooting war, though most people just want to be left alone."

Empire will be a first-person shooter and will run on Unreal Engine 3, but there's no word on which platforms it's in development for. The book is due out in November, with the game likely to follow next year.
