Tragnarion Announce UE3 Powered FPS

Tragnarion Studios have announced they are developing a brand new FPS using Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. The company boast that the game, titled The Scourge Project, will focus on co-operative narrative and gameplay, and will be built from the ground up for co-operative squad play, where up to 4 players each experience the story together, whilst playing as part of squad. The game is scheduled for a 2008 release on PS3/360/PC.

We’ve been amazed at the speed and quality of results on Unreal. We’ve only had the engine for a couple of months, yet we’ve already been able to build a great-looking, fully playable prototype, which we’ll soon show to publishers, featuring our innovative narrative system for multiple players and our unique co-op focused game play mechanics. Every single feature we want is easily implemented in Unreal – for all the major high-end platforms,” said an almost overly positive Carl Jones, head of Tragnarion Studios when talking about UE3

Mark Rein, VP at Epic the went on to comment, “When we saw the demo that Tragnarion produced, we were really impressed with the progress they had made in such a short time. The high quality visuals, innovative game features and co-operative story have come together in only a few months. It made us very proud to see how quickly they were able to learn Unreal Engine 3 and we can’t wait to get a look at this title again in a few more months.
