Eidos Announce Crossfire For PC And 360

Eidos Interactive today announced tits latest generation title Crossfire (working title) which will be debuting exclusively first on the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows.

When the US government needs intelligence but wants no association with an operation, deniable operatives are dispatched. Responsible for covert paramilitary actions, the Special Activities Division is a division of the Central Intelligence Agency’s former Directorate of Operations, now the National Clandestine Service. Members of the unit must bear no identity; no objects, papers or clothing that could associate them in any way with their employees, Crossfire draws its inspiration from this group of highly skilled individuals.

An innovative new two player co-op FPS from award-winning developers, Pivotal Games, Crossfire is set in today’s delicately balanced political climate, focusing on two covert field operatives, experts in weapons and military tactics. Crossfire allows players the freedom to switch seamlessly, at any point, between these two operatives to lay down cover fire, explore different paths through levels, create a distraction or pin down the enemy under crossfire. The intuitive command system encourages the player to focus 100% on action, without a moment to catch their breath. Featuring full destructible environments and Hollywood-esque explosive moments, the game takes place in politically sensitive areas across South America, Africa and Siberia.

Being able to develop a true next generation title is always both exciting and challenging,” said Darren Barnett, Development Director, Eidos. “We are able to utilise the power of Xbox 360 in so many different areas, such as making use of true next-gen lighting techniques, designing fully destructible environments and really exploiting the game’s concepts into new multiplayer areas with the Xbox Live online game service. CROSSFIRE will offer a new approach to the next-gen FPS genre.
