Ubisoft has just announced CellFactor: The Psychokenetic Wars, a futuristic first-person shooter coming to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network that pits big guns against mental powers.
Developed by Immersion Games, CellFactor puts players in the middle of the battle of humanity versus technology, with players fighting it out using weapons, telekinetic superpowers, or a combination of both. Powers include straight-up telekineses, flying, teleporting, energy shields,and super-speed, meaning that you'll probably want a little bit of both on your side if you intend on not being ripped apart by superhuman freaks.
Along with 4 multiplayer modes, CellFactor will also feature a robust single-player campaign, with 30 solo challenges spread across three characters. Players will be able to level up, adding perks and new customization options to their characters as they grow.
I don't know...it sounds an awful lot like Shadowrun to me, and we all know how that turned out. Hopefully CellFactor fares better when it is released early next year.
