Farm 51 announces Get Even, a horror-blended, Dark Souls-esque shooterBy Russ Boswell
Gliwice-based developer The Farm 51 has announced a next-generation shooter dubbed Get Even. For anyone unfamiliar, the Polish developer was responsible for the creation of Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, the horror-blended first person shooter that featured wild weapons and even wilder enemies. Their newest project is promising to blur the lines of single-player and multiplayer action.
Get Even will employ a Phantom system, much like the popular horror-action title Dark Souls. This unique vision will allow players to infiltrate the games of friends and strangers and take control of enemy units. Because of this, you won't know if the enemies that you are fighting with in your own game are purely A.I. or are being controlled by a human.
What is perhaps most impressive about this title is the visually stunning, photo-realistic graphics. We've seen this type of eye-candy already with Ubisoft's upcoming title,"The Division," but not necessarily to the extreme of Get Even. The teaser trailer above is a mind-bending ride, and at some points it's very hard to tell what parts of the game are created and what aren't, hence the mysterious tag line, "What is real?," which flashes at the end of the video.
"Weapons that fire around corners play a large part in Get Even, allowing the user to shoot from a safe position. These weapons can be linked with the player's in-game smart phone to not only add a sight functionality, but use apps to bolster attack options. Corner-shot weapons are fully customizable throughout the game," explained developers.
The shooter is due to drop sometime in 2015, which is a long wait. It will release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Hopefully we will get some more solid information regarding this title in the near future. This is definitely something you'll want to keep an eye on.
