Atari and Zombie, Inc. are pleased to announce that development is complete on Shadow Ops: Red Mercury, the highly anticipated cinematic action game for the XboxT video game system from Microsoft. The game features AAA Hollywood production values in sound effects, music, script writing and cinematics to create the ultimate interactive summer blockbuster. Shadow Ops: Red Mercury is expected to be available at retail stores in North America on June 15 and in Europe on June 18.
"Shadow Ops: Red Mercury is the most intense first-person action game ever made," said Jean Philippe Agati, executive producer at Atari. "With nail-biting action sequences, hard-hitting enemies, a variety of incredibly detailed environments and THXT Game Certification for the best audio and visuals, Shadow Ops: Red Mercury will offer gamers a completely immersive experience and they’ll be blown away by the cinematic feel and gripping Hollywood-style action of the game. It’s a race to save the world and no threat has ever been more real."
Shadow Ops: Red Mercury will offer players a gripping action movie-style experience through its unprecedented Hollywood production values and ground-breaking sound effects. In the game, the player fills the battle-ready combat boots of Frank Hayden, a special forces operative hand picked to track down and destroy the stolen "Red Mercury," a secret substance of unspeakable power that threatens the world with nuclear annihilation. The player will face off against blood-thirsty terrorists, renegade military forces and highly trained enemy special forces in a last ditch desperation mission to prevent the ultimate terror from reaching the world’s greatest cities.
Zombie, Inc. partnered with AAA Hollywood talent for sound effects, script writing and music to make Shadow Ops: Red Mercury the most cinematic action game ever created, essentially blurring the line between Hollywood summer blockbuster films and interactive entertainment.
Shadow Ops: Red Mercury is expected to release in North America on June 15 and in Europe on June 18.
