New details on Hybrid emerge


Developer 5th Cell announced their upcoming project, Hybrid, back in October via a short teaser trailer. The company is now starting to reveal more details about the game.

The post-apocalyptic shooter takes place in the year 2031, when an alien bacterium has infected half of the population and turned them into the Variant. This new genetically altered race has now waged war on the remaining immune individuals, known as the Paladin.

In terms of gameplay the developer will be introducing Combat Focused Movement, "an innovative new system unique to the shooter genre." Also detailed was the game’s persistent online world war, which will allow online play across a unified world server.

The online multiplayer will also allow players to choose from either the Variant or Paladin factions. And in traditional online shooter fashion, Hybrid will include a leveling system that unlocks new weapons, armor, and abilities.

Even more information on the XBLA shooter will be coming your way when 5th Cell unveils the first hands-on gameplay at the 2011 Game Developer’s Conference next month.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
