Frontlines: Fuel of War
Set in a fictional near future based upon the headlines of today, FFOW brings players into the world’s next great war. As society succumbs to a worldwide energy crisis, a new global depression takes hold. Amidst this gritty backdrop, two superpower alliances emerge. Join the battle on the frontlines as the Western Coalition (U.S./E.U.) or the Red Star Alliance (Russia/China)
Tomorrow’s weapons, today:
Over 60 next-generation vehicles and weapons inspired by military designs for the near future. This includes remote controlled drones, gun cams, and next-generation counter-measures systems, all player-controllable.
Advanced information sharing:
Use high-tech combat systems to collect and relay recon, targeting, and threat information between team mates.
Players may grow their soldier to fit their play style by choosing a weapons loadout, as well as a technical specialization (role). Each role will also upgrade to provide advanced equipment and abilities. It is a mix of RPG-like depth and FPS accessibility.
Frontline combat system:
Both in single and multiplayer, players join the forces on the front line. This front requires successful achievement of the non-linear, contextual objectives in order to move forward. The system rewards advancement and keeps players right in the midst of the action.
Choose your path to victory:
Take advantage of a sandbox of destructible elements to create a unique path and strategy through each mission. Instead of failing and re-playing the same sequence of events, players can ‘chip-away’ with varied approaches.
Drawn to Life
In Drawn to Life, players take the role as the “creator,” the unseen deity that’s called on to restore a cursed land filled with snow and waste. As the creator, it’s your job to design a hero (literally), take to the lands, and begin restoring the world one piece at a time. The game blends core gameplay of action/adventure with platforming, being inspired from games like Mario and THQ’s own previous platformer titles. Players will defeat baddies with a variety of weaponry and tactics, as they slowly restore the land to its previous greatness.
Drawn to Life isn’t a game designed (and directed) for just a younger demographic. The ability to literally create a mass of unique content is something that looks to appeal to gamers of any age, so while it may look and feel like it’s geared towards a younger SKU, it aims for mass appeal.
Conan is an action adventure video game featuring a story of epic brutality, sheer evil and visceral combat. Players follow the journey of Conan the Cimmerian as he fights a vicious battle against a variety of enemies and an elusive power that threatens to consume the Hyborian world. Playing as Conan, players will take advantage of a deep and gratifying combat system that offers a variety of deadly weapons, fighting styles and interactive environments to battle hordes of enemies. In addition, Conan harnesses next generation hardware to deliver a cinematic game play experience, complete with special effects, lighting and a powerful, epic soundtrack, to capture the essence of the Conan universe.
