Just when you thought things couldn't get more intense.
We have the first screenshot for Climax’s purportedly eye-searingly intense Battlefield/Burnout hybrid, Avalon. Not much has been reported since its announcement many moons ago. We suspect that development was put on hold and the developers were locked in a cage with a Moto GP development kit by Mr. THQ, but now that they have a game engine up and running on next-gen architecture we expect Avalon to roll out of the garage later on in 2007.
This online thriller promises a unique and “never-before-seen” twist on the Battlefield genre… at least Climax’s experience in the field should ensure knuckle-bleachingly good handling. Check back for more information, including a final release date, in the coming months.
Ok, here's what is going to happen, I'm going to sleep, and someone wake me up when they stop making games that are either rip offs of other games or based on other games. This is getting annoying. But you have to admit, this game does sound like a lot of fun. But wait, could this be? This game has already been done. Except it's called Twisted Metal, and I think everyone who has played video games with in the past 12 years knows what I'm talking about here.
Which brings me to my next point, when are they going to release a new Twisted Metal game for the PS3 and will it come out for the XBOX 360 and the Wii aswell? I think that the Twisted Metal Black game was good, but this time it shouldn't be so dark and gothic like.
So, back to Avalon. The graphics look pretty good, but is it just me or do these characters look a little anime like? So, my advice is for gaming companies to stop ripping off on other games and start making something original.
