Tactical Space FPS will take players to foreign worlds in breathtaking realism

Gaijin Entertainment and Darkflow Software, creators of the upcoming MMOG Enlisted, today announced the development of Xenos vs Marines, a tactical command first person shooter featuring a revolutionary approach to realism in Sci-Fi games. In  Xenos vs Marines, gamers play as Colonial Force Space Marines, interplanetary invaders who come face-to-face with alien races trying to defend their home worlds.

Xenos vs Marines tells the story of a futuristic advanced humanity that is fiercely determined to stake its territorial claim on the universe.With an emphasis on realism, the game will allow players to experience the unique challenges of the Colonial Forces, led by the brave Space Marines, sent out to seize new areas of influence for mankind first-hand. Equipped with ultra-advanced weaponry, powered armour and other tools of conquest, players will not only fight against diverse breeds of aliens, but also must survive the environmental hazards and anomalies found on the new worlds.

“We often see them on TV - the elite heroes of a space-era humanity, fighting on alien planets for the advancement of man, at the expense of others. Every one of us wants to experience epic intergalactic battles in the most unusual and unpredictable circumstances, but this time we have turned traditional storyline on its head and added realism,” says Alexander Poliakov, Producer of Xenos vs Marines. “This is a game about tactics and coordinated efforts. And of course, it's also about sharp reflexes and  pumping adrenaline.”

Currently, the game is in an early development stage, but already available are first 3D character and equipment models as well as early screenshots of one of the locations.

The game is based on the technological groundwork of the realistic squad-based WW2 military shooter Enlisted, whose backers will be among the first to be able to try Xenos vs Marines. More information about the game will be available tomorrow on the official YouTube channel of Enlisted.

  • Planet Nomads Early Access Review

    Given that Planet Nomads is in alpha, some of the issues get a pass, but there are other, more serious optimization problems with this title, and the building mechanic is borderline terrible. Movement felt delayed, graphics looked choppy more often than not when moving, and the game went through a serious bout of crashing until I switched to a windowed-only view.
    There’s a lot of room for improvement for this title, but the foundation the devs have built is workable. Keep your eyes on Planet Nomads going forward, but be wary; your expectations might not be met if you jumped into the game now.

  • Mirage: Arcane Warfare Beta Preview

    If you thought Chivalry’s combat was too tedious or frustrating, Mirage is definitely worth keeping an eye on and checking out when it has an inevitable ‘free’ weekend on Steam. Torn Banner Studios has set the bar high for me, and for any fan of their previous release. Whether or not the new layer of complexity actually adds to the experience is yet to be seen, but after playing through the content currently available, I can say it’s a rewarding and admirable effort that deserves the attention and recognition it receives.

  • Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III Beta Review

    Dawn of War 3, by Relic Entertainment, is a worthy successor to the first two installments in the series. While it struggles to implement the grimdark theme of Warhammer lore visually, the title manages to reference the theme through its elite units. The heroes and doctrines a player chooses before a multiplayer battle offer the possibility to customize strategy and develop individual playstyle. 

  • Afghanistan '11 Review

    The attention to detail in the game mechanics, the developers’ efforts to maintain relevance and historical accuracy, and the rewards of mastering its intricacies set Afghanistan '11 apart as an exceptional title. However, an unusually steep learning curve, which might be hard to accept for someone who wants to casually try a turn-based strategy game, keep this release from broader appeal.

  • Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition Review

    Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a roller coaster ride of violence that delivers gameplay that's just as entertaining as it was in its original release in 2011. While it may not have enough discrepancy from the original to justify a repurchase, as far as remasters go, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition should serve as an example for how to revitalize an older game.
