Codemasters has revealed a few more specifics about Clive Barker's Jericho, the next-gen and PC horror first-person shooter in development at Madrid-based Mercury Steam.

And since it's Halloween, they've also chosen today to release some grisly screenshots and a trailer, the latter now showing on Eurogamer TV.

Due out on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2007, the game sees the eponymous Jericho team heading to the Middle-Eastern city of Al-Khali, site of a huge archaeological dig and paranormal research centre, in search of a dodgy dimensional rift.

But they won't just be firing their guns at the hellish creatures that pour forth from said rift, oh no, because the Jericho team are also trained in the arcane arts, with each member "an expert in different para-psychological disciplines including clairvoyance, alchemy, blood magic and exorcism".

Players will have to work through the streets of the deserted desert town of Al-Khali looking for the rift, and then presumably will have to do something about it. And judging by the shots and the trailer, that'll be the least of their worries to start with.

Look out for more on Jericho in the future.
